Raver Reviews: Kingston 16 Riddim Compilation (Honest Music DC)

In collaboration with notable Jamaican producers Bebo Phillips and the late Clive Jarret, Honest Music presents Kingston 16 Riddim LP. Originally recorded in the early ’80s, this obscure treasure features Grammy winners Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare on drums and bass and a never-before-released song “Mama Makusa” from Lone Ranger, one of the most lyrically inventive deejays of his era and a major influence on the early British dancehall scene.

Fast forward to 2016, the lead single, “Real Reggae Reggae” features Scotty P, lead singer of Jah Works, over the infectious Sly and Robbie instrumental. Perfect Giddimani AKA “Mr Perfect” lends his voice on the nostalgic “Ms Rose Bwoy.” Ras Attitude, the soulful Rastaman from St Croix, delivers the anthemic “Marijuana (We Ah Bun).”  Jamaican pioneer, Carl Malcolm AKA “Mr. Fatty Boom Boom” himself, joins a cast of veteran and upcoming artists as well.

My favorite track from the riddim compilation is Christos DC’s “Boots and Tie” which features Christos talk-boxing over the riddim on his guitar.

“We here at Honest Music are proud and humbled to be apart of the revival of a tune from the classic era in dancehall reggae,” conveys singer, producer Christos DC.

“We must always remember the true origin: the roots,” Bebo Phillips explains. “They are the foundation of life and the wings of the future.”

Kingston 16 Riddim album is scheduled to be released digitally on Friday July 22, 2016. Distributed exclusively by Zojak World Wide.
