Boomkat Product Review:
Wicked survey of Jamaican-British rootsman Pablo Gad in flight on highlights of his ’70s / ‘80s run, including nuggets sampled by The Prodigy
A towering legend of roots reggae, Pablo gad moved from Jamaica to the UK in 1974 and was cutting tunes by the end of the decade, with a voice often compared to Fred Locks. His anthem, ‘Hard Times’, inspired by observing differences between Jamaica and UK, where at least people “got their giro every week”, would be notably sampled on The Prodigy’s ‘Fire’ and Nu Matic’s 1990 hardcore tune of the same name, and sealed his place in the UK hardcore ‘nuum. This set heaves with 10 classics, fronted by the stepping disco mix of ‘Blood Sucker’, and counting his early classics ‘Gun Fever’ an its woozy dub, plus the aching croon of ‘Beggar Man Child’ and its spangled dub.
