Riddims Of The Month
DJ Bryan Productions Correck Riddim
This emo party riddim comes with great versions in the form of Turn Up by I Octane and Prang Wine by Quick Cook. I also loved Party Reload by Shawn Storm (the lesser known entertainer involved in the crime that put Vybz Kartel behind bars).
CR203 Records The Champ Riddim
The most star-studded riddim of the month with songs from Sean Paul to Spice. My favorite versions would have to be by Konshens and Aidonia, with special mention to NY-based up and comer Hood Celebrity, who is appearing more frequently on bigger riddims recently. Definitely one to watch.
Troton Ramii Tropical Flava Riddim
Marking what feels like the start of summer, another big name riddim with notable appearances from Beenie Man and Future Fambo.
