CD - Dr. Ring Ding - The Remedy
The new album by DR. RING DING and his band is the ultimate remedy in these times of crisis and viruses!
THE REMEDY reflects the influences - musical and historical - from the career of DR. RING DING, which has now been going on for more than 30 years: Roots Reggae, Old School Dancehall, 2Tone- and traditional Ska, Cumbia and Dub ...
As usual, the doctor presents mainly original compositions and songs, such as the festival hit "More Reggae", the jazzy Ska instrumental "Toochie", the musical excursion to Mexico "Maria Angelina" and the cheeky "Fun" that revives the British style of the eighties.
As adaptations there are an early reggae version of JONI MITCHELL's "Both Sides, Now" (in three different languages) and a cover of RADIOHEAD's "Creep" in a gloomy Dub Reggae style.
The band consists of longtime colleagues and a few newcomers, forming a compact rhythm- and brass section; on top, they invited illustrious friends to join them, including:
TIPPA IRIE - Grammy-nominated dancehall veteran. Joint recordings and tours in Kenya and the USA
SISTA GRACY - Jamaican Dancehall queen and head of the legendary annual "Gracy's Bash" festival. Many collaborations and concerts together with the Doc.
STEPHANIE K. - the American jazz singer can already be heard in various joint productions as a duet partner and background singer, and luckily here too.
MICHAEL VON DER HEIDE - Swiss Chanson-, Music Hall- and Pop singer. Amongst other projects, he represented his home country at the European Song Contest 2010. Having been friends for a long time already, this is their first recording together.
The languages in the songs are multicultural and global, as are the musical influences and nationalities of the musicians involved - DR. RING DING sings in English, Jamaican Patois, Spanish, German and French.
