Buy on Itunes
Jr Eric was ruling the small but very active reggae/rub-a-dub community in Sweden for years, but was sadly injured and later passed away as a result of a motorcycle accident in Thailand in 2009, were he had just established a reggae club/restaurant. He had a few years of success spreading reggae music and culture all over Scandinavia and was predicted to gain even further success on the scene, together with Kapten Röd.
Although he passed away at a very young age, he managed to establish good contact with lots of international artists, such as the legendary DJ/MC veteran U BROWN. They became good friends and performed together a couple of times…
As a fun thing during a studio session Jr Eric did a freestyle of U Browns tune TU SHUNG PENG, the only time he ever deejayed in English.
Years after Eric passed his vocals were taken over to Jamaica to re-voice U Brown on it too and BOOOOM! Experience the energy of two legendary rub a dub artists, one original deejay and our Scandinavian hero, working together on this reggae unity anthem renamed: “Reggae Music Worldwide (Tu Shung Peng)”
