Throwback of the week: “Baba Tunde Riddim” produced by Henfield Records in 1999
This week, I’d like to share with you the 1999’s “Baba Tunde Riddim”, produced by Henfield Records. It is an authentic Roots Reggae Riddim with a terrific organ lead, featuring Capleton, Luciano, Anthony B, Jah Cure and more.
In case you were wondering what “baba tunde” means like me… It is a name in Yorbula language that simply means “father has returned“.
The very first cut on that riddim seems to be the track “Created by the Father” performed by Errol Dunkley and produced by Clive Chin, in 1974. Just a couple years later, Dennis Brown recorded his own cut on a version of the “Created by the Father Riddim”, produced by Coxsonne.
During the late 90’s/early 2000’s, the riddim regained popularity as it was remade a couple times. It didn’t spread as much as riddims like the “Bam Bam” or the “Answer”. It is a nice riddim to listen to. Check it out. Share and comment if you like it.
