SEAN PAUL HITS THE ZONE !!!!
After 2 months at our #1 spot, Chams Ghetto Story has been overtaken by Sean Pauls hype Zone on Renaissances ICE BREAKER. Further entries on Delanos piece-a-riddim also chart this time around (Red Square & Assassin). On the 85 riddim other tracks moved in & up again (Pinchers, Yellowman, Assassin again) but I still believe that the vibes is more or less on its way out now.
A fat, new dancehall riddim called REDBULL&GUINNESS (courtesy of Delly Ranks) is on the move and it includes fantastic tunes by upcomer Movado, who is HUGE in Jamaica right now, the best Norrisman in many many years, and the title track by Delly and Freddy McGregors son Chino. Sean Paul teamed up with Nina Sky on the massive CONNECTION and Im actually quite surprised that this one hasnt seen some crossover success. A grrreat party track that should be bouncin up & down the KISS fms of this world. Will they EVER learn?
Upcoming artist Marco Bran finally charts on the TEXAS RANGER riddim and this is a very sad story, as Marco passed on due to a heart-attack earlier this year at age 26 (!!!). We have been featuring his music @ Reggae Runnins for over a year now and as soon as the first 7 single reached our hands, it charted. Condolences to friends & family from the entire BROTHERHOOD crew in New Mexico & beyond ! Big Yards WILD 2NITE riddim is still here, due to the controversial Black-Er/Macka Diamond tune, as is In Times JUMP OFF, and Legends GALORE.
On the rootical scene, Gyptian still is the man of the moment. His heartical Mama is still clinging to the #3 spot, while his Beautiful Lady on Vertex just entered. Mr.Vegas Do You Know has dropped to #14 and TOKs Marijuana to #19. Don Corleon has released the fantastic new roots riddim HEAVENLY, which is more than a worthy follow-up to his SEASONS and DROP LEAF. I expect to see it here soon.
