Track #5..Nice tune, tonight/got to make it riddim.
Also, a Lee Van Cliff tune on the same riddim, "Rasta Rendition"
Trevor Junior - I & I Time and Clarence Parks - Things A Come Up To Bump also on the same riddim. Considered the same riddim as Lloyd Parks - Slaving. Both have a similar bassline but the bassline in the "I & I Time" version is more prominent.

Other tunes on this riddim are Just A Work by Thriller U & So Long by Trevor Levy. The following is also on a similar riddim. This is one cool tune about a dude touring the world and reporting his encounters. "Go a Japan and learn the ninja.....Inna Japan mi haffi really wonder, some youth over deh must be genious or wha...youth deh a 10 and a build radio.." He also tours New Delhi & Calcutta in India and is introduced to crickerters Sunil Gaveskhar and Kapil Dev. "One thing mi learn about India is dem love eat rice and pepper." He also makes a diplomatic visit to England meet with Ms. Thatcher "to sit down and reason about South Africa."

Killer bad girl digital tune. One guy giving her diamonds and the other giving her thrills. "He gives me diamonds, you give me thrills...you give me what I need, he pays the bills." Killer Riddim, Killer lyrics = top notch digital tune.
Also, check M. Beecher on a fresh digital lick of skylarking, track #5, Be somebody.

Frankie Paul - Peel Off A Mask (mass , money) - An advanced and layered riddim that is not reliant on a bassline. A totally unpredictable riddim. I believe that this is the only released tune on this riddim. There is another one but it's on dubplate and I"m on the lookout for it :). You can hear a soundclip at the following site:
Dennis Brown - Up Full One: It starts off a little slow but once that bassline drops it just continues to pound away. Also, I love the oriental sounding synth work.
Some other Nice ones that I'm too lazy to write about, check them out:
Nittty Gritty - Brown Girl In The Ring
Judy Emannuel - Love Hangover (Rumours riddim)
Gregory Isaacs - Steal A Little Love (FRESHHH)

"Keep in a dance @ the gun factory, who a promotion - the one M1, who a the gateman - bad boy remington, bushmaster him a the bartender, big mouth mazooka him a di entertainer, when him start talk is share shot start fire.....22 and .32 a cook the menu, it was hot lead & copper mix with gunpowder." WOW, a lyrical feast.
The irony of this song is that the dance gets ambushed/robbed by gunmen who are guns! Wrap your mind around that. "Who a guard the money - AK-47...if you start lick two, we a guh get yuh ripple."
Two other cuts on the riddim. Barry Morgan - Ripper / Barry Morgan - Global Confrontation, Ayeola 7"

Rappa Horace - Leggo Mi Watch / Bobby Harrison - Posse Come Rock
Watch out all watch thief. "The boy head shape like a damn speaker box, can't hear cause him ear full a wax..give him two bax and him ketch a relax."

Soulful digital roots tune by Michael Levy. "They are trying to kill the aspiration of the hungry one..How long the wicked reign over the humble one?" I think this tune is about South Africa, but the message is universal. SOSee: Save Our Souls from Evil Entities? for Everlasting Eternity? Who knows?. listen

The original "Slave Driver"by Hubert Francis was initially released on Tycoon 7." The EVA 7" is the digital update by Hubert under the moniker Robo Cop (FZ Francis). The production is top notch and clean. Overall a well produced tune. It's one of those tunes with a message that will be relevant throughout time in the world of the have and have nots. listen
Soulful tune by Ruddy Simbal giving warning to those falling into the grasps of the system (workforce?). It's very reminiscent of Hubert Francis - Slave Driver , as in working hard for small pay and receiving "praise with no raise." Tight drum and bass riddim track. "A so the system work, if you nah check it out, you bound to get a jerk." listen

Steve Machete - Righteous Rastaman
Tough digital tune on this obscure late 80s CD release, which also features well known tunes by Robert French & Major Worries. Dub Organizer riddim. Criss digital vibes.
Friday, September 10, 2010
Wicked tune by Vichous Irie detailing a late night ambush by gunmen while riding around town in a Honda Civic with his girlfriend (who "screams like a damn parakeet"). Shares the same killer riddim as Sister China - Jam The Calypso, Flourgon - Come Mek We Dweet (non harry j prod. 12"), Foxie - Muscular Man & Irie Fernandez - So Wonderful. listen

Amazing and highly underrated Patrick Andy cut that's the side b to Wayne Smith's - Dancing Machine. In my opinion, the Patrick Andy cut is just as good or even better than "Dancing Machine." "Leave the Door" is also on the Patrick Andy & Frankie Jones LP, "Two New Superstars," titled as "Little Girl." listen

Peanie Peanie riddim cut by Papa Levi on this obscure UK pressing. Pretty humourous song, "like the sulfur pon a match stick, yuh body bun out quick quick quick." LL Cool J (reffered to as, LJ Cool J!!) and Slick Rick gets a mention here. If this song alone is not a good reason to get this LP, then you should check out the Sanchez track "Kill A Sound" also. listen

One of my favorite Chuck Turner tunes. Mr. Turner does a really fine job of singing on this one. Released on the easy to find Presenting LP (only $20 @ DeadlyDragon), it's shocking that this tune is not popular as it should be. If you love that late 80's New York digital (Witty, Park Heights....) sound, then you will like this one. Listen (FFWD to 22:00 mark into the mix). Seriously, don't miss this one.
A well produced anti-crack tune by Aisha. The production is full and crisp. The intro has the same ominous feeling as the M*A*S*H theme song. A full digi onslaught at the wicked who plot to destroy us, "what now can they do to try to keep us down..just take a little crack & spread it around." Diabolical tune topped off smiley faces on the label. listen

Great Tony Tuff LP on the legendary NY based Park Heights label. The title track, "Sailing," features a wicked latin influenced guitar intro as well as some nice lines.. "all of us are in the same boat together, none of us better off than the other." My fav cut on the LP is the empowering tune "Come Again," which is on a criss digital riddim. Don't miss this one. listen
