Interesting riddim in that is somewhere between dancehall and traditional reggae in style.
Another one from 2007 also in the border between the different genres is Dave Kelly “Joyride-ish” Overdrive, his only riddim this year. It is definitely worth checking out too. It was strangely anonymous despite coming from Kelly.
This is Junior Gong, Something For You, again showing his talents of writing hit tunes. I’m sure you remember 2005:s huge Welcome To Jamrock, also a Junior Damian Gong tune.
Talents for production also runs in the family - this is a production of Trevor “Baby G” James, one of the three sons of the legendary producer King Jammy that today run the Jammys shop.
I was saying 2007 was a disappointing year when if comes to singers, but there actually was a number of good long players released by singers. You should in particular check out Marlon Ashars Ganja Farmer (2006 actually), Richie Spice On The Road To Africa, I-Waynes Book Of Life and Chezidek Inna Di Road. These are all solid, but the real gem is Inna Di Road. I had given up on Chezidek after all his cheesy lovers releases, when this solid modern roots piece arrived after a set of real good 7 inches. A must!
Comments (latest first): Comment: Inne Di Road (Chezidek) is an excellent example of reggae at its best. You know you've got something special when die hard hip-hop, r&b and rap lovers stop you to ask about "...that song..." Blened with Ras Shilo (Mamma Warning), wow, what a cocktail.
