TRACK #1: We kick track one off with a very talented up and coming Jamaican artist residing in the US by the name of BLEN, Blen is letting you know on this BLR (Dracula Rhythm) how much he is a “PLAYER” and you know what? I kind of believe him because he sounds convincing. Like most up and coming reggae artist in the USA, Blen also have been finding it hard to get a break in the reggae business but never gave up, as he puts it “Each dog has their day” so he is waiting for his day to come, well BLR is here to tell you that his day is today and you can hear him now. Blen has a unique voice and style you’ll never forget, he can mix it up with the best of the best and is eager to prove his abilities to the world. Blen resides in Virginia but makes frequent trips to Jamaica to peruse his musical career, check him out on this CD and be on the look out for more because this DJ is rough.
TRACKS #2: Next up we have another highly talented young artist residing in the US by the name of BUCKSHOT, Buckshot is letting the massive know on the BLR (Bubbler Rhythm) that he too is a player, but a “TRUE PLAYER”, and I definitely believe him, because how would he know so much about the moves of a player? Listen this track and see if you agree with me. Buckshot is from the Philly area and as a Jamaican artist from the Philadelphia area he truly represents the state well, his style is truly unique, and I’ve never heard a style like his before, he definitely adds the scotch barnet to this Inferno CD. Whenever you hear his name again just believe that you will be hearing about an ace DJ who can hold down the fort and keep the session blazing hot. I can already see a future star in the making with the right push and the adherent to certain guidelines such as being reliability, dependability, honesty and staying genuine which he does a good job of. This track is definitely super hot.
TRACK #3: Buckshot is still holding down the fort on this track (Terrorist Rhythm) with his “CHI-CHI MAN” tune (All in fun), we had to release this one before things wore thin. This recording was done around this time last year and it was no need for it to sit around, “you done know money spend and ting”, anyway this one is as wicked or wickeder than any of the chi-chi man tunes them out there.
TRACK #4: This track features the man call CRIPPLER, name given to him by Killa-Fonz. Crippler is definitely awesome on this BLR (Goodman Rhythm), the title of this track is called “NOUG A DEM A GWAN LIKE” them so innocent. Yes Crippler is another hot young up and coming Jamaican artist residing in Maryland USA that is determined to make his name known worldwide, he has done recordings for several labels in Jamaica and several Dub-Plates for sound systems worldwide while living in Jamaica, he is also very talented and ready to take the place by storm, this track will definitely wet your whistle and have you screaming for more because this one is sizzling hot. They say you can’t keep a good man down, which is true, but we also say you can’t keep a determined man down which most true in Cripplers place, Crippler must have called us over 50 times for an audition, and to tell you the truth we are pleased that we did because his style is definitely wicked and he adds the flames in the inferno of this CD.
TRACK #5: This next artist is called DEADLY MOUTH, who happens to be the brother of Buckshot. On this BLR ( Rhythm) he’s letting you know how much he loves to profiles in his “SHOCKING COLOR BENZ” which is all about fun, and true to his word he got it down patt, he also brings to this CD a wicked style and flavor that keeps the fire in this CD burning out of control. This is Deadly Mouths first recording but if I didn’t tell you you would think he was born with the mike in his hand, he too resides in Philadelphia and between him and his brother they got the place locked. Yes another star in the making and an ace DJ at work, the name speaks for itself, check him out.
TRACK #6: Next up we have ENGLISHMAN and LEXUS DREAD in a wicked combination style titled “GONGO WALK” which explains how Joe Grine sneeks over to his gon-gu walk after leaving his girl home. Definitely a wicked, wicked tune with an R&B flavor fit for the international radios. It has hit tune written all over it. Englishman career span all the way back from the-mid 70's, with over 10 Albums to his credits and thousands of Records sold, he has also had the honor of Performing for two Prime Ministers in his Native Land of Jamaican back in the mid 70’s, he has also done free concerts to benefit the Leukemia Research at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and have performed on the 1994 Jamaica Reggae Sunsplash along side Judy Mowatt, Michael Rose, Tony Rebel and Freddie McGregor. Englishman's performances have taken him around the world and he’s still on the move. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for more good music from this veteran entertainer.
TRACK #7: This track “CUTE LIKE A BUTTON”, features KILLA FONZ riding the (Button Rhythm) which explains to the world how cute the ladies are, this track also happens to be the title track of Killa’s latest new CD called “VERSATILITY”. The ladies will definitely appreciate this track and will be balling out for more, guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser and will get nuff forward in the dancehall, A must play tune for the ladies so grease up your waist and saddle up because this one is rougggghhh!
TRACK #8: GOLDii, a hot Jamaican veteran female singer is letting you know on this (Goldii Rhythm) that “LOVE DON’T LOVE NOBADY” which she knows all about due to her many life experiences, you couldn’t find anyone to explain it better. Goldii now residing in Florida has been singing and performing for many years and is still perusing her dreams, she is highly gifted, talented and is one of the few Jamaican female singer that I’ve ever met that can hear a beat for the first time and within minutes write the entire lyric for it, for real she’s, tough like that. It’s just a shame she’s been getting the run around in the business all her life. Goldii is an awesome performer and a wicked singer bursting at the seams with talent, she’s also very attractive. This track is a winner, and it will open your eyes to the true meaning of love, definitely a blazing hot track, a must have for the ladies.
TRACK #9: Track number nine features a wicked combination from JOCKEY RYDER & KAFINOL on the BLR (Hot Flex Rhythm) title “HOT FLEX”. Jockey should be no stranger to you because he has been promoted nation wide, I remember going to Jamaica in 95 and picking up a magazine on Air Jamaica and there he was, I think the magazine use to be The Reggae Report (Not Sure); he have also had a couple #1 tunes in Hawaii a few years back, with recordings on the Sweet P label, featured in several popular magazines, and opened for several big Jamaican acts here in the US and abroad. Jockey still resides in Philadelphia and is truly in top form, as you will hear on this combination track. Kafinol is the singer on this track and have a sound similar to Ghost but with a different flavor, he reminds me of Bendilou from Stereo1 & Pinchers, two wicked singers, similar voices but different flavor. Kafinol resides in Portmore Jamaica and have done track with Beenie Man and several known artistes; he lets it all hang out with a wicked combination style on this CD. They say that Portmore have an abundant of talent in Jamaica right now and he is a perfect example of what they are talking about. This track means serious dancehall business.
TRACK #10: This one is definitely a big, big International tune, featuring JOCKEY RYDER the DJ and SLICK RICK the singer letting you know that “THIS IS FOR MY LADY”. The music for this track definitely compliments the lyric well, and the combination style is on the one. Jockey is at his usual best on this track and Slick Rick is the Icening on the cake, It’s a lucky thing the Icening is heatproof because if it wasn’t it would surely melt. Slick Rick reminds me of Maxi Priest on this track, and is a singer I wouldn’t mind listening too all the time. This track is A1 and should definitely be played on the international airwaves. This track along with track #11 can be heard on BLR’s Jockey Ryder HOT FLEX CD.
TRACK #11: LADY “V” is awesome on this BLR ( Rhythm), she’s expressing herself on this track letting you know that she is “BOUT IT BOUT IT” don’t bother gwan like you want come doubt it, hand in a the air jump up and shout it, yeah that’s “V” alright, with a commanding voice, wicked delivery, one of a kind style and excellent execution. Believe me, Wickedness increases 10 folds when Lady “V” touches the mike on this track. V now resides in NY, but have performed on Reggae Sunsplash, many dances, show and parties, she is well known in the DJ fraternity, she has performed with many of the big artistes and when they come to NY she is one of the first person they call being that she also get Dub-Plates for many sound system. V has also done recordings for many labels and voiced Dub-Plates for man sound systems. Yes this track though is all about V, the don girl, and she’s Bout It Bout It, she is one of the best female DJ voices that I’ve ever heard if not the best. She should have been up there on top with all the other stars but like they say, “a patient man rides the stubborn mule.
TRACK #12: On this BLR (Millinium Rhythm), DJ SHEPARD the leopard, is letting you know all about his “MELLINIUM” gun, a big gun, and certain people done. Shepard is a cross between Merciless and Bounty Killer and take my word for it, he’s just as poisonous and (full up a de venom) as those artist, Shepard also happens to be the brother of Spanna Banna & Plyers as in Shaka Demous & Plyers, and it is definitely true in his case when they say that the fruit never fall too far from the tree. This track stands firm amongst all gun tune, and if they stop to change the Magazine, “Them Done” because he got the millennium gun. No long talk about this gun because
TRACK #13: This track features MO-Money Ramone from the BLR’s TDC Top Dog Hip-Hop crew, riding on the BLR (Dracula Rhythm) built by himself. On this track MO-Money is telling you to LOOK OVA DESO, and goes on to tell you why. For a 16 year old Jahmerican at time of recording who have never been to Jamaica, and sounds so good chanting on his first dancehall beat, he is quite impressive, but then, he’s not the ordinary teenager with a father like Killa-Fonz (the drill sergeant) around. From the age of 13 killa has been training Mo-money down in the dog house to become a winner in all aspect of the business, now that he graduated he’s 10 years ahead of the game. This is definitely an awesome track you have to hear to believe. This track along with others can be heard on BLR’s web site.
TRACK #14: The temperature levels increases 10 folds on this track. KILLA-FONZ is riding rough on the BLR (Shut UM Down Rhythm) letting you that it’s “ROOKUMBINE” in a the gal dem waist line, rookumbine. Yes it’s all about showing his versatility on this track for all the ladies. The style was conjured up out of killas endless arsenal of styles and lyrics because as he puts it, “It’s a curse if I’m not verse, and I don’t want to end up picking someone purse”. He also says he keeps Bruce Lee in mind when it comes to styles because Bruce knew all the styles of fighting, but used anything and everything around him (no particular style) to win the fight. Yes this one is definitely for all the hot ladies, it will definitely get them charge and ready to dance up an inferno, this track is vicious.
TRACK #15: SHEPARD the leopard gun peppered is letting you know on this BLR (Why Rhythm) that “LIFE IS A TRAGERDY” tell him what you rather be, which he delivers as the poor peoples government. Shepard is definitely talented to the max so if you love Merciless or Bounty then you’re in for a treat with this one.
TRACK #16: This one call, “CAN YOU TELLY ME WHY” featuring JOCKEY RYDER & CRYSTAL burning down the place with this wicked combination style that adds the fuel to the inferno, the dancehall rhythm is called (Da Knock) taken from the BLR catalog, and believe me it is hot, full up of the flavor, and guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser. Jockey is at his usual best on this one and Crystal is there to support him 200 degrees% of the way.
Overall this CD is a winner and definitely deserves to be in your dancehall catalog.
