Another fantastic collection of hot Reggae talents by Giddimani Records, Anti-Racism Riddim, has been released on March 30.
One of our early Artist of the Week was Perfect Giddimani from Jamaica. He does not only produce his own records, he also has his own Reggae label. Most noteworthy, he actively supports and records upcoming talents and professional artists on compilations and albums. Listen to the Civil Right Riddim!
