Powercut


This year I'm _not_ going to talk about the batty boy business, the internationalization of reggae, the dance ting or Sizzla. I've been over that too many times before. Instead I am going to cover the one drop trend that does not seem to fade, analyze the Myspace thing from a reggae&dancehall perspective, talk a little about where the new riddims are going, Dave Kellys productions, give my view on Matterhorns capabilities as a DJ. And a few other topics...

First off I'd like to put some focus on the production team around the Big Ship label. Most people probably associate that with Freddy McGregor and his type of music and productions, but the lately his sons, fronted by Stephen 'Genius' McGregor, has been very successful with two sizzling modern riddims, Breaking New and this one Power Cut. Stephen 'Genius' McGregor was also involved in the production of the Red Bull & Guinness riddim.

As I write Power Cut has only been around for a month or two, but it's still growing, so I think this has to be counted as one of the 4-5 biggest riddims (at least) of late. I just love this one, same with breaking news, absolute state of the art when it comes to modern riddims.

Powercut comes right away with 28 versions released in one batch. This got to be something of a record. Everyone is on it except Sizzla. And I mean _everyone_ except Sizzla. Everyone, and a whole heap of others too as a matter of fact.

I think this is a great site. I stumbled upon it looking up info on Mavado. I've been looking for the name of a song that has the lyrics "look like you come from foreign. When you wear your shorts your skin no barky bark. I think it's a Rae riddim which I did not find here. I want to know who sings that and where can I find it? Thanks.

Is there a CD out for this? Because if you meant EVERYONE was on it except Sizzla, that would include a lot of my other favourites, such as Sean Paul, Da'Ville, Assassin, Tanya Stephens, Tami Chynn....
