Mo Music production, riddims CD to be found on VP if you wnat all the versions.

This cut is Lexxus War start. Lexxus seems to be the flavour of the moment although I must admit his styleis a bit to hip hop influenced for my taste. Check the new Lexxus CD, Mr Lex. It's riddims galore (to me the whole CD is more about riddims the Lex). It's not one calssic riddim recycled, just this and last years origianals and it's seriously inventive! Again, may be a bit hip hop/RnB oriented, but...Check this on Lex and his CD and and other great redaing on reagge and hip hop: http://www.sfbg.com/AandE/GotItBad/45.html. Not very often do you read anything clever and well written on reggae, especially not contemporary non-roots reggae, so don't miss it.

Anyway, while on the subject of riddims, I definatley think it is seriously incorrect to say that no new riddims are created these days. Those claiming that are generally roots oriented people and for 99% of the roots productions that is true. But if you listening to roots, aren't the trusted and proven just what you want? If you on the other hand are looking for new fresh music from JA you just cant claim that what is released today is "same old things over and over". Apart from a few odd numbers from Capleton and Sizzla you won't find much old riddims on, say, the English reggae charts. Maybe more in the US, but I would think marginally.

Wehn it comes to roots productiosn, I'm a roots fan myself and I don't have a problem with versioning, but what really annoys me is that the original riddims that are built are so extremly traditional that it could have been versions, if you know what I mean. Check for example the riddims from Morgan Heritage on their HMG label. Originals, yes, but so extremly traditional that they put you to sleep right away. It must be possible to do good roots better thatn what is done now. My theory is that the produers that do roots doesn't ask for the original and that's the reason musicions like Sly for example very seldom produce original sounding roots tunes.

Other versions to check out is Capletons Hunt You (included on his Hotter Fire CD) and Elephant Man Show Mi Dem.
