Portmore Empire, “Unknown Riddim”

20 Nov

Just got back from the Port Maria Magistrate where I oversaw some of my first Jamaican court cases thanks to a lawyer friend of mine. While most cases were primarily traffic related or civil suits, I noticed everyone showed up for their case but dem police men who were no where to be found. Almost all cases were postponed for six months. Just a thought.

Headed back into Kingston we stopped to get fried chicken and I heard a Death Cab for Cutie song on the radio which seemed really awkward against the background of banana trees and aluminum sided homes. It’s hard to imagine any other soundtrack for Jamaica then the sounds of dancehall and reggae. Coincidentally when I reached Kingston the “Unknown Number” riddim had dropped just before the weekends start and it gave a slightly better track from Lisa Hype, but a lot more good shit from Vybz and Sheba– who’s witty foreplay keeps me interested– Blak Ryno, Shawn Storm and Merital Family. Download it here. (via Tuff Chin.)
