For half a decade, Doncaster deejay Parly B has been a fixture of the UK and international sound system scene. His first album on Glasgow’s Scotch Bonnet Records, Lyrics Spree, builds on 2016’s EP 'This Is Digital’.
Blessed with a voice as deep as Bounty Killer’s, a crowing gimmick reminiscent of the great Dennis Alcapone and a bottomless bag of verbosity, Parly is the complete microphone talker. He rides a shopping trolley load of digital rhythms by likeminded producers – including Danny T & Tradesman, Stalawa, Interrupt and Mungo’s Hi Fi – ranging from upbeat celebratory skanks to sweltering body winds.
Tracks include the exuberant 80s vibes of the title tune, the brass-driven UK sound of You Mi A Look featuring fellow Mungo’s mic man Charlie P, and the moody reality chant Skylark. Lyrics Spree is infectious, verbally dexterous dancehall, spraying lyricism in your direction…
This weekend Parly B will touch base downunder for his album release tour alongside The 4'20' Sound performing 3 shows in the Reggae Carnival Market in Sydney, Jamaican Music and Food Festival in Melbroune and the weekly reggae Monday session in Byron Bay's Beach Hote
