Mr.Vegas & W.Anthony Still Riding Pon Top !!!
While Mr.Vegas & Wayne Anthony's "Pull Up" is still riding pon top in NM, there are a bunch of new entries this month. Shaggy's own Big Yard label re-built the vintage STOP THAT TRAIN riddim (now entitled RETURN) and the man himself is leading the pack with his WICKED reality contribution "Stand Up & Fight". General Degree is not far behind at #5 with his message to all the fakers out there (and there ARE plenty) "Non-Genuine". Morgan Heritage also finally came up with a boom-tune again on the same beat, while Bounty & Voicemail are just bubbling under. Big ups to Mr.Livingstone!
On the hardcore tip South Rakkas' RED ALERT still runs New Mexico, as proven by no less than 5 tunes on this very chart. One of the best riddims for the year, it still rocks our neck of the woods. Also VERY tough in October is Black House BLACKOUT riddim, still led by Cartel's Jamaican dancehall anthem "KISSING" or "Picture This", as it is known internationally. Further tunes from Sean Paul, Nicky B, Elephant Man complete the package. Brand-spanking new is the SPANISH FLY riddim from a hot, new production team called the Ballaz Crew on their Dem Yute Deh label. Kiprich's sweet "Senorita", packed full of latin elements made it this time and I expect further entries in the future.
Marshall's CRUCIAL "Ganja Anthem" done to the melody of "Hey
Ya" (and putting those Outcast fools to shame) has finally reached
our shores, courtesy of Father Frankin, while the SCOOBAY still holds
tight due to the selecta combo from Matterhorn & Mr.Feelings.
Until next time:
