Left Side & Esco present the Throwback Giggy a hot new ride on a retro riddim. According to VP “inspired by the ‘Coca Cola Bottle’ riddim of early ’90s fame”. Although I think this is rather a relick of Steely & Clevie 'Giggy/Mamma'-riddim, as the name indicates. Or are this same as Coca Cola Bottle?
To me it sounds as much like any of the other bogle riddims from the time, but... Any bogle riddim expert out there?
Throw Back Giggy, a type of riddim called Bogle, big in the mid 90-ties. At the time it was extremely unpopular amongst the non-Jamaicans, “this bogle shit is just a drum beat…if it hasn’t got a bassline it’s not music!!!”. Of course Bogle was sort of a reaction after the digi and Music Works Hi-Tech sounds that was before it, which was extremely centred around the bassline.
So, interesting to hear Buju on a Bogel riddim. I was 10 ears since the last time, and he was one of the hottest artists at the time. Mema his Big It Up? Or his batty rider over Madhouse Bogle riddim? Or Terror Fabulous Mr. Big Man on the same riddim, a big tune…:
“Big man a de money, so suh im a de boss,
and de likkle small man haffi kiss im ass”….
…over this hyper energic riddim.
Soundquake has a number of these tunes in stock BTW.
Also worth looking up is the Bogle collection Junjo Laws released when he was released after a longer jail sentence (after dealing drugs and mashing up Gregory Isaacs Bimma if I remember correctly. Or was that Eek mashing up Junjos?). Junjo got outta jail and after being away from the scene for a few years and immediately released a set of killer tracks on the brand new Bogle style. You’d think he would rule the new style as he did with the Radics dancehall style in the early eighties, but he took his crack addiction elsewhere and ended his days in a shoot out inna Inglan a few years later. Suh it a go.
