Gappy Ranks is one of the artists at the forefront of a resurgence in UK reggae music. Not since the 80s and artists like Smiley Culture, have there been English reggae artists that have been able to record hits in the UK, which also received respect and success back in Jamaica. Gappy Ranks however has been changing that.

Not long after his first visit to Australia in September last year, Gappy returned to our shores to merk it once more. Here are some shots from his performance at Goodgod with supports from Hoops, Jimmy Sing & Judgement, Naiki and the African Essence Dancers.

Also I have uploaded one of the tracks he performed. A reggae song about his experience being in Japan when the earthquake hit last year.

Listen: Gappy Ranks – I Was There (Japan Earthquake)
