Digger Riddim

While Robbie Shakespeare was on a day off in Paris during a tour with Bitty McLean, video producer and journalist Francois Bergeron showed Robbie a video of an African farmer digging a new well.

Robbie immediately felt a rhythmic pattern. We rushed to give him a bass and went to the top of the Nova building (in the heart of Paris). We then recorded him playing his bass and creating the “Digger Riddim”.

Genius at work
