When looking through what I wrote last year I can not help but concluding…:
Yo… the Nostradamus of dancehall music does it again…
Last year I wrote this long monologue about how dancehall is growing out of the “big tree” context and into a global phenomna. Dancehall is no longer a JA (or JA expatriate) culture, it’s a global thing that is living and developing on a global scene. And even though I do believe what I write, even I was very astonished to find Sentinel win World Clash 2005! And as far as I’ve seen everyone agree that deserved it. I know you may say Mighty Crown (Japan) has been there for a while, but to me they have received a lot of “managing” by the right people to get into the position they are in. (No disrespect though, they are wicked and they do understand the music). But truly, if non JA:s even can manage to rule a dance with all the big sounds, then to me that signals that the world is really the scene of dancehall, not the backstreets of Kingston. And if the wasn’t enough, the afore mentioned Mighty Crown won the UK Cup Clash! So dancehall has become a global sub culture over the last few years. Plz, remind me - where did you read it first?
I also discussed the interesting problem how to release Sean Pauls weed tune We’ll Be Burning (“Herb is the healing of the nation” “best high grade a Jamaican” and so on). I predicted that if it was released it would be a huge hit as it is one of his biggest tunes ever. The problem was dealt with through changing the lyrics to “We’ll Be Clubbing” and yes, it was a gigantic hit. Plz, remind me - where did you read it first?
I was also taking about riddims more in the vein of UK Grimey and Brazilian Bailie Funk. It started out in the beginning of the year with the Bionic Ras riddim and a few others that didn’t relay make a huge impact, so it took a little time, but now it’s here big, most notably with Busy Signals Step Out, a huge JA number one. Siren is another biggie (Patrick "Roach" Samuel) example on a hot riddim in the same vein. Plz, remind me - where did you read it first?
Also I made a few comments on the Battybwoy war, and said that the JA artists had underestimated the power of the gay movements, and my predition was that the flood of Batty man tunes on 2004 would turn to nothing in 2005. And that was exactly what happened. Plz, remind me - where did you read it first?
Ok, nuff self praise now. After all I did _not_ predict trend of the year, the use of vocoder (I could beat myself, I should have seen that coming, there where already a few odd tunes around when I wrote the round up last year.)

I still think Sean Paul is a great artist, but "Temperature" was not that good.

Comment by: hot shot Date: 2006-04-04 Comment: Greetings! I have to say dancehall riddim has sounded like garbage for the past three years! The riddims of 2004-Present sounds like inexperienced, hyperactivity in the production process. The masses listen and buy de music cause deh doh know better! Most de riddims sound like Breakbeat Soca riddim. Leave the Soca to the Trinis, Bajans, and Antiguans! We leave de Reggae ah Jamaicans and reggae bands wid white man and he friends with "locks"!
