Big Tunes w Undercover



Been a while, work, life. Big tunes drop here we go....
We start (and end) with Dionne Reid, a killer cross-over UK artist (Barrington Levy cover, Tuff Scout single) that rides the riddim since 19-long-time. Up next is some killer BB Seaton produced relick biz from his OG Soul Beat catalogue with Funny Feeling, featuring Lady Lex, Dennis Alcapone and some R&B stylez from....Chris Stylez. lol. Jah 9 (seriously yawn, pass me the chalice...lol) has a few killers amongst the yoga tunes off her VP album, but for me it's the freestylez from her pre-album EP drop the 9mm where she rides some serious 70/80s roots riddims that does it for me. Next up is the Jammys - New Sounds of Freedom, which to be perfectly honest is a little hum hah over the mixing on this. Legendary riddims yes, A grade vocalists yes, but seriously, I can splice a tune like that on my mixer! What's up? Am I being too harsh? Included anyway. Compare that to the Stephen Marley album - all killer. Pushing boundries production wise as all Tuff Gong biz does and some tight hip hop/reggae vocal combos.
Riddim wise we have Overstand's Mile High Riddim featuring killer cuts form Jesse Royal, Morgan Heritage and Bushman. Through Thoughts (hip hop, latin, beats label) drop an solid one-drop riddim and Idlers Corner drop the Chatty Chatty Mouth riddim both featuring both underground and overground UK vocalists. The old guard Shaggy, Rayvon, Screechy Dan, Red Fox and Assassin spit on perhaps the biggest riddim of the all - Sitara riddim. And as I mentioned, Dionne Reid rounds it up with some soundcheck mixes of Bam Bam and Ring Di Alarm.
