If you were asked to name any sinlge reggae act based in Europe, whom you would expect to full to capacity any venue within the first week of promotion, then your first answer would have to be Gentleman. Although he is not the only major reggae act within the multicultural reggae scene which now flourishes in Europe, he has been recognised as one of the pioneers of the moment and an inspiration to most of the current megastars from Italy to Sweeden and even America.
On friday the 4th of April he was booked to perform in Mannheim’s number one reggae spot RUDE 7 along with Silly Walks Music as apart of a special show which when annouced was sold out almost immediately. Also slated to perform was Mannheim’s very own “Skarra Mucci” who has opted to invite “Teacha Dee” in order to promote “Farword inna the dance” and “Red” as well as to present Teacha Dee to the massive most of whom were familar with ” Smoke and Fly ” sung by Teacha Dee years before but were unfamiliar with his image before the release of ” Long Day ” selfie video and ” Red” videos repectively.
The highlight of the night, Gentleman, gave what was to many one of his classic performances on a close and personal level included also were singers from his entourage ” The Mighty Tolga”, ” Tamika” and ” Treesha “. Within his set also he took time out to re-introduce “Skarra Mucci” to the packed club along with “Teacha Dee” and “Don Tippa”.
It was at this time that all the energies of the night came into a broiling mix and the massive along with Gentleman were bouncing to the uptempo riddim and the medley of artistes that came at them. The smiling face of Gentleman and his participation within the routine also made the patrons fo wild and this was by no mistake the support Teacha Dee needed most of which has been provided by Skarra Mucci all along the way. This was definately a passing grade for the ” Teacha ” from Jamaica.

Deebuzz Music along with Hard2Def released what can be termed as a very hard hitting dancehall riddim for the fall season in Europe. This riddim consist of a mixture of German artistes and Jamaican artistes with songs skillfully crafted to express various meditations centered around the “Naughty Wife” concept. Teacha Dee however, has deviated from the norm as he has done numerous times and recorded a cryptic message to the masses entitled “Freedom”.
This explosive track along with its booming riddim consisting of wild riffs mostly heard within the rock circles, has been creating waves especially amongst the females as the low hard driving vocals are captivating and message solidly written. Take a listen to this track and discover for yourself the basic but effective flow of what many dubbed the missing art of “deejaying” believed to be lost with the founding fathers of dancehall music.
