SEAN PAUL rules the first NM Reggae Dancehall Chart for 2003. His "Get Busy" miraculously extends the reign of the DIWALI into the new year. Right on its heels is another Sean Paul creation; the remix of his massive "Give Me The Light" featuring Busta Rhymes. He also has extra-hot tunes on the MASTERPIECE and TAI CHI riddims, that are barely bubbling under. Things are lookin good for Mr. Dutty Cup.

Elephant's newest bad man tune to reach us on Q 45 Records is at #3; while Richard Browne's TAI CHI riddim finally charts in the form of TOK (at #4). The toppa-tops of November & December 2002 (Shocking Murray as well as the Capleton/Military Man combination) have dropped down a few spots but are still going strong. Lenky's red-hot MASTERPIECE riddim seems ready to replace the DIWALI slowly. It is included 4 times in our current Top 20, featuring the likes of Bounty Killer, Beenie Man, Elephant and Danny English alongside Egg Nogg.

On the roots-front we see a number of further entries on the NO TIME beat, plus some of Steelie&Cleevie's re-workings of vintage Joe Gibbs material. As Joe Gibbs just passed recently, a fitting tribute for real: Old To The New!!! The gargamel Buju Banton released a nice update of the FULL UP riddim and especially his "Concrete Jungle Rock" is off the hook! Last but not least we have an interesting combination featuring Shaggy, Sean Paul plus Brian & Tony Gold entitled "Hey Sexy Lady" which has a nice Latin flair to it. Brian & Tony Gold will be special guests on Chris Goldfinger's "Reggae Dancehall Show" on BBC ONE radio this Saturday (4-6 pm West Coast time). It is available on the internet at www.BBC.UK/radio one. Possibly THE best reggae radio program in the world (outside of Jamaica).

This same Saturday(1-25)I will be hosting REGGAE RUNNINS in Santa Fe (sorry no internet access yet), taking a HARD look back at reggae in 2002; what was HOT and what was NOT.
