Formed in 2010, Top Shotta Band featuring Screechy Dan is Brooklyn’s freshest and hardest hitting live ska and reggae band.
Led by trumpeter/producer djMush1 (formerly of The Slackers and Murphy’s Law) the group features a 4-piece horn section, a full 4-person riddim section, and live percussion, as well as the inimitable Screechy Dan (original Vital Crew/Big Yard/Shaggy Posse or with his alias Leon Dinero on Daptone Records) on vocals. With a powerful, soaring, and versatile vocal style, at times invoking R&B/soul greats such as Frankie Lymon and Otis Reading, Screechy Dan is a New York City musical icon, and an in-demand international touring artist.
With its roots originally in instrumental and horn-laden dub, Top Shotta Band’s latest 7” single returns to Mush1’s musical roots and deepest love, foundation ska music, and features two original compositions by Screechy Dan and the band.
This brand new 7″ single is the advance of their forthcoming vinyl LP to be released in 2020, entitled “Spread Love”. “Share My Love” and “Cool and Deadly”, the tracks featured in this new 7″ 45, are two genuine roots ska tunes pressed in a limited vinyl released for fans and DJs.
