Who Dat Girl – Roach Killa & Miss Pooja

Who-Dat-Girl-Roach-Killa-&-Miss-Pooja-1400-AA

Born in Sabah, Libya and raised in Canada, the one-time Ricky Cheema’s turning into Roach Killa gives rise to the once popular raggamuffin style: the hip-hop and dance-laced brand of reggae. Although my first memories of this subgenre of dancehall music, supported by electronic instrumentation, arrived via Apache Indian, Roach pursues it diligently on “Who Dat Girl” by juggling idiomatic influences with hip-hop-influenced production touches courtesy DJ Dips. But the appearance of Miss Pooja [born Gurinder Kaur Kainth] brings the song upto speed with the introduction of the “Mera Laung Gawacha” interlude with its Bhangra rhythms which, combined with ‘ragga’, results in “Who Dat Girl” walloping in dance beats, reggae rhythms, and rap, swirled into folk elements! That said, this is a track that is both listenable and danceable, with a fun [ap]Roach!
