NEW TUNES STORM NM CHARTS !!!
For the month of November, new tunes have stormed the NM Reggae Dancehall Chart. Leading the pack is the Ballaz Crew's SPANISH FLY riddim, which has given Kiprich his first solo-#1 spot in the history of our chart. His "Senorita" compliments the latin vibe of the riddim very well and has become THE most requested tune in the land of enchantment. Further selections from Ele at #4, Alozade & Chico at #6, Macka Diamond at #9 and Bounty at #19 show just how strong this riddim from one of Jamaica's newest production teams really is. Also brandnew and kickin' up quite a storm is Donovan Bennett's latest: the TIGHTY TIGHTY , courtesy of the man himself, alongside Nigel Staff and Wayne McGregor. Fast-paced, and somewhat similar to the massive KRAZY HYPE/FRENCH VANILLA, TOK have a monster tune on this creation, as do Ele (with the title track) and Ward 21, who are just bubbling under.
Tony Matterhorn's SCOOBAY has made another re-surgence in New Mexico, with new entries from Martina, Lukie D & Chicken, while the "Scoobay Anthem" featuring Tony Curtis alongside Future Troubles has re-entered the chart at #3. Mr.Easy's RED-HOT "Pull Up" (obviously a favorite dancehall theme this year) also re-entered at #5, coutresy of Mr.Dow Jones & his South Rakkas team, while Sly Dunbar's KASABLANCA is represented by the one and only Galaxy P, who seems to have recovered nicely from his being shot earlier in the year. Baby G's somewhat outdated yet absolutely wicked ACOUSTIC SOUL beat also finally made it with Ele's "Mexican Girl". Complete badman-anthem material and you can nearly picture the gunman riding into town on his burrrrrro to check his Senorita despite all the dangers of the world that are lying in wait....Further GREATS on the riddim are out by Spragga and Wayne Marshall and I cannot recommend this one enough, although it dates back from 2003 I believe.
COOLIE DANCE's time seems to be nearly up, as Vegas & Wayne Anthony
drop from #1 to #20 (ouch!), yet it is amazing how long it managed to
remain on the chart in the first place, nearly reaching the DIWALI level.
So props out to Scatta: what's next suh? Wayne Marshall's "Ganja
Anthem" climbed a few spots, whereas the Outkast hit has definitely
become old news (as they seem to have themselves, as well).
Yard's RETURN/STOP THAT TRAIN riddim is still going strong with selections
from Shaggy, Bounty and General Degree (Morgan Heritage and Voicemail
are bubbling under on the same deal) and two of Jamaica's biggest roots
anthems for the year have finally reached our mountains: Richie Spice's
"Marijuana" on the sweet 5TH ELEMENT riddim and newcomer I-Wayne's
"Can't Satisfy Her"
Until Such Time:
