After almost 15 years of label history and global smashs like the “Doctor’s Darling” and the “Cure” Riddim, and TANYA STEPHENS monster hit “It’s A Pity" or T.O.K.s "Shining Star", today we announce the line up of the upcoming 20th GERMAICA Riddim!
For the "Xleration Riddim" Leipzig based Dancehall Soundsystem UPLIFTMENT INT'L and upcoming producer TINY DAWSON joint forces to deliver a firmly Reggae rooted Instrumental which as well easily bridges the gap to nowadays sound aesthetics and arrangements. Label chief PIONEAR digged deep in the label vaults and came back with a 2003 VYBZ KARTELL called “Marihuana Gone To Bed” to contribute to this jubilee release.
AGENT SASCO sounds really “Michael Jackson-ish” on his “Universal Language (Love)” while the pre release single “High Grade” is another Ganja anthem by Dancehall Veteran MR. G aka GOOFY alongside Jamaican newcomer VERSHON and Ugandan Superstar BOBI WINE. The last song represents the growing European Dancehall fraternity with Bosno-Suedes SANJIN & YOUTHMAN and their entertaining “For A While” which is as well part of their debut EP “Balkan Dancehall (GERMAICA DIGITAL).
The Riddim will be officially released next week on Dec17 2013. To kick of the pre-release FEDERATION SOUND from Brooklyn did a MegaMix of all the tunes.
