Another well crafted international collaboration from King Dread Studios is out and currently blazing hot on all digital stores. Also a producer in his own right, Scratch Rugarchy decided to spice up his works with Dread’s sound thereby leading the duo to come up with a Reggae sound that is ready to rock airwaves, clubs and internet for a long time.
Dr Dread real name Terrence Mpakula is Cape Town based Record Producer, with an extensive client list of musicians and performance artists covering a number of genres and sound styles. Dr Dread has lots of experience in the music industry, complemented with a deep understanding of cutting edge technology and the latest production processes.
Super loaded with conscious lyrics and the 5 track E.P. carries songs like Suck Africa Dry, Down in the valley, Who feels it, Voicemail and Zimbabwe. Scratch’s writing skills are mainly driven by his love for humanity and his hate for social injustices. While it all began with studio works, Scratch has been seen on stage together with Dr Dread and his band, The Dub Liberals and in other instances with the Dr Dread 4 piece, One Drop Band
The deep African accent, the philosophical writing style and the unique vocal projection possessed by this Rastaman gives roots rock reggae a whole new look if not a facelift
While Scratch Rugarchy is already a big name in Capetown, his new project has seemed to have gotten him international attention with promoters from as far as USA, for example, initiating very promising dialogues.
Dr Dread first burst onto the Harare music scene back in late 90s. Since then, he invested in quality equipment and have been producing music for different bands and artists, making a name for himself in the local music scene.
