FIRST RIDDIM 2013 – VARIOUS ARTISTS

FIRST-COVER-500PX

After succesful string of hits on Protection Riddim and World Citizen, Damalistik presents brand new bag of scorchers on the First Riddim. First, because this is the first riddim Damalistik ever constructed. Fans of his previous effort will certainly be familiar with its melody, because the First Riddim is basically a live instrumental counterpart to Protection. It´ s rootical sound recalls Sly Dunbar drumming style or booming dimension of Mikey Dread´s best productions. Selection of artists, who delivered their performance, guarantees top quality. Luciano, the roots master, warns against wicked babylonian system in his take named Shabilone. Turbulence chooses another aproach and points out to the dangers of dealing with unruly women. Cutty Ranks personally fell in love with the First Riddim and insisted on recording not only one song, the excellent and unexpected call for environment protectors, but also dj take of the Turbulence piece recalling his numerous combination with singer like Beres Hammond back in the days. No matter of the style, Cutty is still the top ranking dj! Damalistik always loves to work with UK artists (and UK artists seem to love to work with him as well!). General Levy confirms that ´from the day mi born mi a general´, in case you haven´t know. Macka B describes beauty of Jah Rainbow, combination of red, gold and green. Solo Banton reveals his disgust over fake friends in Can´t Believe, the song, that already found it´s way on his last album. Peppery contributes on less serious note with hiss lesson to gals, who love their men. Polyfamous and Jaggy D show, that Damalistik´s instrumental provides ample backing for sensi songs, too. Up-and-coming artist Chevaughn searches for woman of his dream and it´s quite sure, that only few will resist power of his song …

DYNAMQ / THOSE DAYS IN NAIROBIE

cover2

Without a doubt an African Reggae Classics , Those days in nairobi was previously released & went viral all over Africa.
Now with a new fresh sound & and live drums recording ,Dynamq teams up with Damalistik from Roots Survival out of France to deliver the official track alot of Africans call A CLASSIC AFRICAN REGGAE SONG.
 The song talks about how Nairobi once was, Mentioning a few Ghetto areas that had it rough but always found a home listening to great reggae dj’s & selectas in clubs. Clearly the reggae market has changed & it will never be the same ever again but this song brings back a great memory & shows a side of Nairobi that the world haven’t gotten a chance to see or heard about. Music would play all night, if you love reggae music put your hands up high, A great line that Dynamq used on this track to let the fans know that no matter where you come from Black or white, Reggae music is for all of us.
