Weedy G Soundforce raises the roof

Rise-Weedjy-SOundforceWeedy G Soundforce might not be one of the most well-known production crews in Europe, but they have for the past years dropped more than a few floor fillers. Their trademark is something of a hip-hop and reggae cocktail. And the secret ingredient is energy. Lots and lots of it. And that makes their brand new 14 track compilation Rise stand out of the crowd.

Rise collects some of the biggest contemporary reggae and dancehall artists from Jamaica and Europe. Elephant Man, Busy Signal, Christopher Martin, Perfect, Lukie D, Ward 21, Gappy Ranks, Cornadoor and Skarra Mucci all show up for this high octane extravaganza.

For the past few days I have had several of the tracks from Rise on repeat. The pulsating Busy Signal & Christopher Martin combination Lock Di Endz being one of them, Perfect & Teacha Dee’s We Nuh Afraid being another. But you also have Melloquence & Elephant Man’s Hold You, heavily inspired by Gyptian’s monster hit with the same, and J’se James & Skarra Mucci’s soca-tinged Burning.

Rise is an unusually well-produced and well-compiled Caribbean album jam-packed with energy and tons of fun.
