Sadiki To Release New Album

Sadiki To Release New Album

SKINNY BWOY JAMAICA – US based Jamaican Reggae artist Sadiki, returns with his third solo album, “Jah Is The Only King” on November 20, 2012. The self-written, 12-track album is a clear departure from the all lovers rock sound of his previous set. “Jah Is The Only King” offers a compelling blend of conscious reggae tracks and rootsy lovers ballads that showcases the singer/songwriter/producer’s growth and maturity as an artist.


Majority of the tracks on “Jah Is The Only King” are produced by top flight Jamaican reggae producer Kemar “Flava” McGregor (Sinead O'Connor, Etana). Sadiki also worked with UK’s Chris Peckings (Bitty McLean, Gappy Ranks) and Lloyd Mullings, Netherlands production house/label Area 026 Music, French producers First T & Kross, Japan’s Enjoint and Switzerland’s HearMeNow! Records in order to create a universal reggae sound.

Sadiki has an extensive resume of reggae hits in the United States, Europe and Japan. Signed to Smashing Pumpkins bassist Darcy Wretzky’s and guitarist James Iha’s Scratchie Records (distributed by Mercury Records) in the late 90’s, he released an album under the name Pancho Kryztal. His debut album as Sadiki, “Morning’s Come” (Skinny Bwoy/P-Vine, 2007) was ranked #1 in sales at HMV stores throughout Japan within weeks of its release. His sophomore set, “Lifeline” (Skinny Bwoy/Joe Fraser, 2010) topped the Weekly Star charts and rocketed to the #2 position on the New York & South Florida Reggae Charts. Sadiki is a three-time nominee for “Most Promising Entertainer” at the International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA).


“Jah Is The Only King” is available immediately on a pre-order basis thru Sadiki’s Bandcamp page. Physical CD’s can be purchased via Amazon or directly from Skinny Bwoy Records at www.skinnybwoyrecords.com.

“Jah Is the Only King” Reviews


“…authentic and full of love. The album consists of sparkling foundation reggae, roots rock and lovers rock pieces” - Yoshimi Emoto, United Culture Japan (U.C.J.)

“Jah is the Only King truly captures Sadiki's songwriting and vocal abilities. All of the tracks are original compositions. As usual, Sadiki never fails to disappoint. From start to finish the compositions are solid! …bound to be a "modern classic" - Jessie Irie, 90.1FM WUSB, Stony Brook (NY)
