Reissue of the long out of print classic second Suff Daddy album from 2010. „The Gin Diaries“ marked Suff's transition from beatmaker to producer. Many fans call this record their favourite Suff album.
"The Gin Diaries" are about beats, love and Tanqueray. Suff Daddy is a gentleman who knows about the good life: Jamaican Kush, rare soul records and beautiful women make his day. And Suff Deezy ain't no greedy man. On his new record, he shares his music with friends like Miles Bonny, Fleur Earth, Mariama, Mar and Jim Dunloop. We call "The Gin Diaries" a beat novel, consisting of 13 musical short stories. Some have lyrics and some have not but they are all snaphots of the life of Suff Daddy. "Özdemir" speaks about Suff's penchant for Turkish breaks, "Vienna" reflects on a recent trip to Vienna and "Konnopke" is giving props to the best currywurst in Berlin. Whereas the songs with Miles, Fleur, Mariama and Mar deal with love, despair and everything in between.
This digital re-release comes with the bonus track On&On&On.
