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.
If you have been following this blog for the past 6-7 months, you will see that I have huge appreciation for 80's Jammy's digital tunes. The Jammy's digital sound of the the mid to late 80s withstood the test of time and is still sounds fresh to this day. "Sleng Teng" is great and fully deserves the acclaim it gets. However, some of the lesser known Jammy's digital productions that deserve some light of day are:
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:
"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"
