Weekly Digest 4

Horsemove, the first single from Horseman’s forthcoming album for Mr. Bongo, ʻDawn of the Dreadʼ. Inspired by a horse race, Horsemove was written in 1985 and released under the title Giddiup. It proved a successful hit back then, spending four weeks at the top of the British reggae charts. This new version comes backed with production from Horseman acolyte Prince Fatty who updates the riddim for 2013 with a solid, bouncing bassline and a rejuvenated drum track. Horseman, real name Winston Williams, has been honing his drumming and MCing skills for close to three decades now and has worked with the likes of Tippa Irie, Max Romeo, Barrington Levy, Gregory Isaacs and Sugar Minot among others. For the last few years heʼs been the resident drummer and MC for Prince Fatty and Hollie Cook.
