Killer compilation from Maximum Sound

UK-based label Maximum Sound, lead by producer Frenchie, went digital last week. The first step was to offer the back catalogue on iTunes, and the other day saw the release of the iTunes exclusive compilation Maximum Sound 2011.

This set assembles 18 dancehall and one drop tunes from 2009 to 2011. And as usual with Maximum Sound there are no fillers here, only killers from the crème de la crème of Jamaican singers and deejays.

I mean, you hardly go wrong with Sizzla, Bounty Killer, Mr. Vegas, Tarrus Riley and Alborosie on well-produced and inspired riddims such as Praise Jahovia (a relick of the Billie Jean aka Get A Lick riddim), Ghetto State (which incorporates elements from Half Pint’s One Big Ghetto) or the most recent addition, Fairground.

Maximum Sound 2011 collects several tunes previously only available as 7” or 12”, but it also includes exclusive titles, such as Who You Love from Ce’Cile.

This compilation is without a doubt an essential purchase that will enhance any record collection.

Maximum Sound steps into the digital age with a bang

UK-based label Maximum Sound, lead by producer Frenchie, steps into the digital age and releases an exclusive iTunes compilation titled Maximum Sound 2011.

The new compilation holds 17 killer tunes from artists such as Sizzla, Tarrus Riley and Busy Signal on a variety of different dancehall and one drop riddims, including Skateland Killer, Ghetto State and Praise Jahovia.

Several of the tunes haven’t been available on digital platforms until now, which makes it an essential purchase for non-vinyl buyers. Keep an eye out on August 21st,when it hits the streets.

Maximum Sound has also fortunately enough decided to release their new Fairground riddim as well as the back catalogue on iTunes. And this is a real treat. If you don’t own riddims such as I Know My Herbs, Jah Powers and Blackboard already you should definitely head over to iTunes.
