Last year French versatile production and mixing duo Bost & Bim – responsible for some huge mash-ups with their Yankees A Yard compilations – put out the Hustlin’ riddim. Hawaiian singer J-Boog’s cut Coldest Zone made number four on Reggaemani’s best tunes in 2010.
So it comes as a pleasant surprise when I heard that they are dropping two new versions of this wicked hip-hop influenced rub a dub one drop.
Five cuts are now available in a digital Prince Jammy Style. Pick of the bunch is Valene’s intense My Ghetto Cry.
The other version is in a nyabinghi style with a scent of soul. Pick of these five are once again J-Boog and his Coldest Zone.
This varied one riddim album is available as digital download worldwide and as CD in France.
