Another nice one, Summer Fling was definitely one of the top 5 in 2011. A Chimney Records production.
Movados Final Destination was one of many hits on this riddim, Beenie Man & Versatile, I Love The Girls another one.
Loads of new names in the business this year, I think I’ve never seen so many new names on top riddims. Like it a lot, a few years ago it was always the same names on the riddims. I think it’s because there are so many riddims released. Until 2-3 years ago it was much easier to predict what was going to be a top riddim, and then it made sense to make sure you got the biggest names. These days it’s much more difficult to predict and there are so many more riddims and producers to chose from. In the end this means more chance for unknown to end up on a riddim that turns out to be popular.
On the other hand most of the new names sound exactly as already established artists. What you have is basically 10-15 Sizzlas, Movados, Wayne Wonders, Bereses, Kartels, I-Waynes and so on. And few of them are as god as the original. It is difficult to be an original in the dancehall world….
Tarrus Riley cut a lot of tunes in 2011, to many for his own good I’d say, but this was extra nice and very unusual to hear him on a riddim like this. And as always from him its a great tune.
