Daniel Bedingfield – “Sometimes You Just Know” | New Music

Daniel Bedingfield. Remember him? Londoner, burst onto the scene via garage smash “Gotta Get Thru This” and a personal favourite, the remarkable “If You’re Not The One”? Brother of Natasha, she sang “Unwritten”.
Well, he’s back. Only, he’s making music a little different to how you last heard him. Most will agree that it’s completely different to what you’ve previously heard. He makes dancehall music now. You know the offspring of Jamaican music known as reggae? Yeah, that. And it isn’t the cheesy, Peter Andre “Mysterious Girl” (can I admit to liking that on SoulCulture?) knock-off stuff either. He’s appearing on genuine riddims made by Jamaicans in Jamaica that also feature genuine artists like Mavado, Beenie Man and Khago. (p.s. the picture was taken whilst taking in the sweet sounds of dancehall on a night out with the owners of Club Privilege in Jamaica. I’d pay money to see him buss gun finger to his favourite Vybz Kartel song.)

He surfaced in May with a remixes of Ovamarz‘ “Now You See Me, Now You Don’t” on the Starbwoy riddim plus UK dancehall artist Gappy Ranks’ collaboration with Jamaican producer Russian on “Tun Up” (which can be heard here).

Listen To: Daniel Bedingfield – “Sometimes You Just Know”

Chorus could have been stronger, but he fits the dancehall vibe nicely. If he changes the repetitive bit, I think this could do reasonably well for him. This doesn’t stop here, it has been reported that he has been recording a full album of material in Jamaica over the past couple of years.

Bonus: my favourite on the riddim is undoubtedly Mavado “Settle Down”. He has been steadily building a catalogue of songs for the ladies recently. Those who knew Mavado from the beginning will know the “Gangsta for life” mantra has mellowed a touch.
