The last time we dropped in on Mr. Bligh was back in 2011 with the release of his rather encouraging debut record Is This England?.
His debut was an album of all things indie, punk, reggae and hip-hop, following the release of which, he decided to return to producing. Two years on, having spent a lot of time experimenting with his sound and style, the young Londoner has gone all in on the reggae and dub buzz. Working with a variety of reggae singers such as Ras Tweed & YT, he’s hit on something that works ever so well. It’s just the ticket with the sun finally reemerging following the long cold winter; it’s feelgood and happy, head nodding music. It’s pretty rare new Ska, Reggae or Dub material crosses my path so I’m pretty smitten with this at present.
Mr. Bligh has a string of releases planned for 2013, both digital & vinyl. You can check out a few choice cuts below.
