Mp3: Blaze Fia Riddim

9 May

Just stumbled upon this new Blaze Fia Riddim from Dutty Rock Music. It’s been reported to be the newest producing venture from Sean Paul’s camp… actually straight from the musical keyboard that is Sean Paul’s transcendent mind. It’s chock-full of Jamaica’s finest, including a track from Sean Paul called, “Gal a Bawl for More” plus great tracks from Future Fambo, Elephant Man, Assassin, Busy Signal, Wayne Marshall… and plenty of other great artistes. Peep it below.

Assassin, “We Love The Girl Dem”

Elephant Man, “Turn Mi On”

I mentioned a fluctuation in Jamaican sound in my post for TheFADER.com the other day. Prodigal Entertainment just released a grimy track by Wiley called “It’s Wiley” on their soon to be released Showa Eski Riddim and it had me thinking how good the mish-mashing off Jamaican sound is with other genres when it’s done well. Prodigal gave Showa Eski just the right rhythmic wax and wane on this bouncy crossover beat and Wiley navigates it with the ease of an MVP.

Then I discovered the dubmatic clash of dancehall and heavy bass in the new Elephant Man, “Vampires and Informers” mini album from Subatomic Sound System (New York) and Peoples Records (Jamaica). The mix features 8 tracks from the riddims of Subatomic Sound System, Stereotyp, Dubblestandart, Kush Arora, & Ming (of Ming+FS). You can get the entire album on Itunes or Amazon, but peep the preview mix below.
