One artist, one sound, one message! Follow up to the 2006 album “Giddimani” – 16 track strong with entirely new rhythms & tunes and with outstanding artwork. Featuring Empress, Chezidek, Gyptian and Turbulence.

Perfect, born Greg Rose, grew up in the cool hills of Bamboo in the parish of St. Ann, where he was constantly exposed to the rhythms of Jamaica because his father owned several jukeboxes. Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Toots Hibbert have been his early favourites from these days on. The musical career started at primary school where he sang on a regular basis, and continued to perform throughout his school life. After graduation he had a regular job, and additionally DJ-ed for Trendsetter Sound in his spare time. He also gained first-hand knowledge and experience of the music business while fine-tuning his musical skills at studios like Penthouse, King Jammys and Arrows.

In 2005 Perfect recorded his breakthrough hit “Handcart Bwoy”, which got him heavy airplay on Irie FM and other major radio stations as well as the Reggae Charts top position not only in Jamaica. Other hits like “Amerimaka” and “No Badda Mi” soon followed and were featured on his first album “Giddimani” in 2006 (released by Tads/DHF) as well as his first European and US solo tour.

‘Born Dead With Life’ is a concept album combining exclusive and entirely new rhythms and tunes with very personal and profound lyrics concerning black history, self-awareness and the sufferings of the black nation. This album was exclusively produced by Irievibrations Records and features their trademark sound as known from Riddim selections like “Lovebird”, “Caribbean”, “Hit Drop” and “Work Off”.

Enriched by contributing artists like Chezidek, Empress or Gyptian & Turbulence, “Born Dead With Life” is a milestone in Perfect’s career. Watch out for dates of the consistently touring artist!
