SLOW BOUNCE & BOMB-A-DROP DOMINATE NM CHARTS !!!!
big riddims dominate the NM Reggae Dancehall Charts for the month of march:
H2O's massive SLOW BOUNCE and 357's follow-up to the SCOOBAY entitled
BOMB-A-DROP. The latter nearly topped the charts with Vybz Cartel's "No
Apology" at #2, followed by Cobra's WICKED "Dem Fool Deh"
at # 5 and further cuts by Tony Matterhorn & Beenie Man. The smokin'
SLOW BOUNCE also fared extremely well, led by Bounty's "Pum Pum Mechanic",
to be succeeded by Nicky B, Tami Chin and Vybz Cartel. Great stuff!
KOPA runs things again though, and with a slew of new tunes released on
the riddim (including material from such stars as Sean Paul, Bounty Killer
& Kevin Lyttle) its time seems far from over either. John John's CHICATITA
charts twice in the form of the prophet Capleton and the crucial Bounty
Killer/Angel Doolas combo, while Shane Brown's (& Birch's) KLYMAXX
hits spots # 17 & # 19, also thru the voice of the man from Islington,
St.Mary, as well as thru Ward 21.
the rootical tip, Chuck Fender climbed up to # 10 again, whereas Richie
Spice lost his #1 from last month, dropping him down to #11. Richie's
awesome "High Grade In My Chalice" on the SWING EASY riddim
is brand-spanking-new at #16, while Bounty's & Pincher's re-created
"Bandolero" rose up to the #13 spot. I also HIGHLY recommend
new female artist Evette's "Baby Mama" on Eight 76 Records,
who keep busting out some excellent new artists as Fiyah Blaze and the
month I predict some MAJOR changes, as new cultural artist Fantan Mojah
has finally hit these shores, as well as Gibbo's top-ranking HARD TIMES
riddim (featuring the next big I-Wayne hit). Junior Gong is mashing up
the scene with the HUGE "Welcome To Jamrock" and Don Corleon's
new JONKANOO, as well as Snowcone's APPLAUSE are both bound to cause a
stir. There are also new riddims from Steelie&Cleevie and Fat Eyes
on the way.
