• High-torque direct drive (33⅓ rpm in 0.3 seconds)
• Classic DJ turntable layout
• Removable power, ground and phone cables
• S-shaped tone arm
• Multiple tempo control options: ±8%, ±16% and ±50%
• Tempo reset button
• Solid build for excellent vibration damping
• Professional-grade gold-plated RCA jacks
• Rubber-lined tone arm to improve isolation and prevent feedback

The world’s fastest rapper, Jamaican-born Daddy Freddy was also one of the first artists to fuse ragga buy CBD products dancehall with hip-hop, helping establish a style that would become highly influential

Freddy (born S. Frederick Small, 1965, Kingston) grew up in the Trenchtown area and began performing for his uncle’s sound system, eventually moving on to join Lieutenant Stitchie and, most importantly, Sugar Minott. His gig with Minott’s sound system helped make his name in Jamaica (and, following an overseas tour, the U.K.); in 1985, he made his first recording for Clement “Coxsone” Dodd’s Studio One label, a single titled “Zoo Party,” that was built on the rhythm of the early ragga smash “Under Mi Sleng Teng.” Aided by his hit debut album Body Lasher, Freddy scored a remarkable six Top Ten hits in Jamaica during 1986, including a collaboration with Pinchers, called “Joker Lover,” that topped the charts.

In 1987, Freddy returned to the U.K. the resulting album, Raggamuffin Hip-Hop, was one of the first fusions of dancehall toasting with hip-hop rhythms, breaking a great deal of new ground. This album created even more interest for Freddy. Artists such as Dr. Dre, Cypress Hill, David Morales and Norman [Cook] all requested collaborations and others like The Prodigy, Me’lissa Morgan (“Through the Tears”), Salt ‘n’ Pepa and KRS-One all sampled his unique voice. Freddy also managed to influence and support fledgling UK reggae stars, Top Cat, Tenor Fly and Prento Youth who went on to the legendary Coxsone Sound and the record label Congo Natty. Freddy continued to record dancehall reggae singles for the Jamaican audience while making guest appearances with pop and dance artists.

In 1988, Freddy entered the Guinness Book of World Records with a rap that topped 500 syllables per minute. 1991 album Stress and the accompanying single “Daddy Freddy’s in Town.” Both enjoyed success, and the Capitol-issued follow-up album, Raggamuffin Soldier, scored positive reviews. Up next was his Music of Life album, The Big One. he staged a comeback in 2000 to make the new album, Old School – New School (Third Eye Music). Since then Freddy has been making new music and recording with record labels such as Reality Shock.

Freddy’s versatility enabled him to become an elite name in the jungle drum and bass movement. He has earned his status as a legend. He has recently joined forces with SCOTTY (Fantasia/Urban Front) and you have the pleasure of being treated to a showcase of their work at Jah Ryan’s special 30th Birthday Dance!
