Produced by JZ Crome. Classic styled dancehall riddim, this was what they sounded like in the early 2000. Also artists chosen accordingly, a number of veteran masters of the genre – Beenie, Assassin, Capleton, Vegas. These veterans are reliable, real solid version from all involved. Also good version from the newer names and nuff hits.
The Matterhorn cut – Ugly – was fun as it showcased a catch phrase technique with has a loong tradition in JA music but we haven’t heard in a while now. UUUUUUGLYYY!! :)….
Another fun tune with a similar lyrical approach, owing much to the Leutenant Stichie tradition of lyrics, is Fada Fresh I Fit on teh Firewire riddim. 3 minutes of words that start with the letter "i" :).
Overall I think it was the strong versions that set this riddim apart, even if it was a nice riddim to.
