March New Mexico Reggae Dancehall Chart
BABY CHAM LEADS THE PACK!
Hard on its heels is a German production by the magnificent West-Berlin based band SEED. They re-recorded the NIGHT NURSE riddim so fat and powerful, that no artist could do wrong on this one. Then they invited Anthony B to re-record his classic "Water Pumpee" in a German combination stylee and you got one of the hottest rootical reggae productions of the last few years. Yankees & yardies wise up! Germany gwaan ruff&rugged. Other selections on the riddim to make this chart include newcomer Crystal Axe and veteran dj Dr.Ring Ding. People you gotta get these !!!
Sean Paul is still going strong. His combo with "Mr. Flipmode Squad" Busta Rhymes is clocking in at #4, while "Get Busy" dropped down to #9. Missy Elliot's huge "Work It" got re-worked with the likes of Sizzla & the prophet Capleton (who love the pum pum), while the TAI CHI riddim is only represented by TOK. I expect it to make a come-back though, as many of the big guns on the beat are just getting released now.
Stone Cold productions re-created D.Brown's classic MONEY IN MY POCKET riddim late last year and Lehbanchuleh's "Mama" is one of the sweetest roots tunes in a while, while Powerman finally charts again with "African Princess" on the same beat.
MASTERPIECE riddim has lost a bit of its momentum, but it is still represented
by 4 tunes from Bounty, Ele, Wayne Marshall & TOK. I also expect this
one to make a come-back though.
next time: see ya in the dance.
