i'm usually not one to post up my thoughts on new riddims, though maybe i should start, but i just picked up some cuts on the "First Sight" riddim on Pow Pow and i must say i'm impresseved. they usually come correct with their riddims (cept i didnt care for "Gladiator"winking smiley, and this one is no exception. my fav being the Chezidek "Call Dem", big tune...but again i love Chezidek so that could be why.

so yea, check for this one...definitely top notch.

sounds kinda like a tribute to mid / late 80s jammys ('sarah', 'the score', etc)

i still cant dig that drum machine style of culture rhythms. sounds like someone make the rhythm on their casio.

i like the milestone rhythm, but dont really think any of the vocals are that good.

my favorite recent ernie b rhythm is the street swing - four or five good tunes.

seriously though - i like wayne smith's under me sleng teng

I think there are many good computerized tunes in the reggae vaults

I just hold the opinion that modern jamaican music has come to rely too heavily on a certain equation of drum machines and synthesizers, and that a certain element of musical creativity and natural sound is absent in the majority of new jamaican rhythms. A lot of the new rhythms i hear - i can tell if i'll like them by the third beat of the first measure.

I think that's why so many of us see i grade, mt nebo, etc, as a fresh draft in a room full of stagnant air.

I said i like the street swing riddim in my earlier post, which is, in my opinion, a blend of the old and the new.

I agree that relying on computerized sounds is a bad thing, luckily most artists (even dancehall) tour with a band for live shows. I personally prefer having a soundsystem flingin' down riddims at shows in a club setting, but in a larger venue a live band is the only way to play...
