Derrick Harriott – Black Skin Blue Eyed Boys (Jamaica, 1982, Crystal D)

Great cover by Derrick Harriott (my favorite rocksteady artist) of this classic song from Eddy Grant and his Equals band !

Derrick Clinton Harriott, born on the 6 February 1939 in Jamaica, is a singer and record producer, who founded the famous Crystal records label.

This version sums up the Jamaican producing skills, mixing together disco, dub and roots music, and is for me a direct answer to the song Disco Devil, by Lee Perry.

Today, I wanted to share with you one of my favourite secret dancefloor weapon, a track from Bell’a Njoh, a Cameroonian artist native of Douala and a friend of mine who passed away a few years ago..

Ebolo“, the track presented here, is a unique Tropical Afro Disco Boogie song with crazy synths, taken from his first albums and that always set on fire all the dancefloors when I play it – Enjoy !!
