DR. RING DING has been a remarkably prolific and versatile singer/instrumentalist on the world circuit since 1987, and can certainly be regarded as one of the driving forces behind Reggae in Germany. An “entertainer” in the truest sense of the word, he is stylistically at home within the entire spectrum of Jamaican music. He sings in English, Patois, German and French. Tireless touring throughout Europe, North America and Asia has made him a fixed and indispensable component of the international Reggae, Dancehall and Ska scenes. Numerous albums and a plethora of singles, as well as guest appearances with other bands of the most diverse genres, have solidified his reputation as a versed performer and musician.
His shows, either backed by renowned bands such as the Sharp Axe Band from Germany and the Ranking Soldiers from Barcelona, or traditionally alongside sound systems, are a fountain of good vibes. Dr. Ring Ding never fails to entertain the crowds, varied as they may be. Once on stage, you cannot stop him nor top him… . On his latest album “Nice Again”, Dr. Ring Ding delivers an overwhelming variety of different Reggae and Dancehall styles. 19 tracks in different languages, swinging with funky-reggae-club sounds in “Sneakers”, showing off a rough edge in the rocking “Ruff Like A Rock”, taking the listener to the lighter side of life with groovy Reggae tunes such as “Good Times” and his undisputed Dancehall smash hit “Doctor’s Darling”, speaking his mind on world politics in “Bombs Over Baghdad”, stating a humorous yet conscious credo in the German “Vom Vatter”, offering a multilingual treat with the pumping “Lala” and bringing back the heyday of Jamaican Rub-A-Dub style in his programmatic “Dancehall Nice Again” and “Call Di Doctor”.
Whether it be true blue old school grooves, current computerized beats or even pop songs, the German veteran of Jamaican music shows off his talent both on his recordings and live on stage. Dr. Ring Ding lives music, particularly the music of Jamaica! As one of the first performers in Germany who bridge the Ska and Reggae scenes, he has opened many ears and hearts for the “Good Vibes” of his favorite sounds.
