TAPPER ZUKIE - PEACE AND LOVE IN THE GHETTO
David Sinclair was born in 1951 in Kingston, Jamaica. We came to know him under the name Tappa or Tapper Zukie, one of the most militant DJ's from the era of the Punky Reggae Party.

He was heavily promoted by Patti Smith, who also was influential in getting his -now- classic album MPLA on the UK market. 

Not, that he was new to the UK in the late 1970's, though. Back in 1973, he already recorded material in the UK. This was the album "Man A Warrior", which he recorded for a producer named Clement Bushay.

Still, for some reason producers in Jamaica didn't think the same about Tappa's voice as many in the UK. 

After a period of acting as the bodyguard for producer Bunny "Striker" Lee, he started his own record label and things went from there. Both his work as a producer as well as an MC were then well received in both Jamaica and abroad.

He produced such vocalists as Prince Alla, and due to his social work he also came in contact with people who he helped getting in the music industry too.

Quite an impressive Curriculum Vitae...

"Peace and Love in the Ghetto" was originally released in 1979 on the UK based Virgin Frontline label, known for it's many militant and DUB based Rockers music. It only contains 9 different tracks, but quite some tracks they are!

Good mixes, with loads of echo's to accompany the voice of Tapper Zukie as he rides from one drum and bass line to the next. We hear riddims used by singers such as Johnny Clarke.

When you like albums like MPLA, you will want to have this lesser known work of the man as well.
