Since he entered the business, young producer Seanizzle (born Sean Reid) has become one of the most impactful producers in the dancehall scene of today. He started off building several riddims for Goofy's 'Young Blood' imprint and a couple of others as well, before he gradually ventured out on his own, establishing Seanizzle Records to release his own riddims. He soon scored several hits including Beenie Man's "Reverse Di Ting" and Tony Matterhorn's hit single "Siddung Pon It", both on the 2007 released the "Reverse" riddim. Shortly after that he gave birth to the "Creepa" riddim, which was huge
for Elephant Man's tune "Gully Creepa". Other riddims he produced and released since then are the "Outada", "Xcitement", "Zero Tolerance", "One Day", "Split Personality", "Wetup", "Sex On Di Beach", "Sunrise", "Survival Mode", "Dutty Gamez", "Brain Storm", and more.
With the "37 Psalms" riddim he shows that he's also capable of creating a riddim that will appeal to more reggae oriented fans. The slow-paced computerized riddim with its keys, strings and nyahbinghi flavored percussion underpins five vocal cuts full of consciousness. I Queen, a female artist on the rise, kicks off this 'one riddim' set with "I Wanna Be Free". She definitely has a vocal style of her own, which should be shapened further to keep it interesting to check her future works. Pressure Busspipe has established his name in the past decade and certainly is a reckonable force in the roots arena. Here he delivers a fully satisfying effort called "Love". Every now and then Bugle comes up with a good tune and his cultural "Jah Jah Bless U" can be placed amongst them. It's the highlight of this compilation. Not far behind are Charly Black's "Loyalty" and Voicemail's "Stronger", both making a good impression. Also the instrumental version of the riddim is worth listening to.
There are not that many songs on the riddim, but all are worth checking out.
