The 'Blindfold' riddim is Citizen K Productions' latest effort. The ultra-smooth one drop riddim is build by musician/engineer Kevin "Spyda" Brown and we're sure that with this riddim he'll gonna impress the reggae massive throughout the world. In 2009 he scored with the equally strong 'Fallen' riddim.
The riddim is voiced by a fine selection of singers and groups. The popular Montego Bay based group JaSoul consists of Mervin Morris aka Gotti, Kemar Holt aka D'Meeko, Oneil Lawson and Tino Parchment aka Cassoul. It's a mix of singers, songwriters, rapper, djs and a producer. With their mix of soul, r'n'b, reggae and dancehall they managed to create a solid contemporary Jamaican music style. Breathe is a self-penned solid 100% lovers rock tune that will reach out to lovers all over the world. Good job!

Ainsley Thompson, better known as I-Shadrock, hails from Trelawny and he delivers a good tune called Luv U Mama, a genuine tribute to all mothers. Universal Japan recording artist Iakopo (formerly Keys of Creation) scored a commercial hit in Hawaii and Japan with his debut single 'By My Side' a tune across the Fallen Riddim. He comes up with Be With Me, which happens to be an above average tune.

Richard Marshall, of Marabella Trinidad and Tobago, is better known as Dakeye, one of reggae's most soulful crooners. His vocal abilities are outstanding, being blessed with a deep soul voice, reminding us of renown soul artists like Teddy Pendergrass, Jeffrey Osbourne and Jamaican vocalists Beres Hammond and Freddie McGregor. Here he is in extremely good shape with Thank You. Black Ice aka Icee, is not yet widely known, but after listening to Cheating Ways we're sure that will in due time. Excellent tune! Kevin "Spyda" Brown surprises us with an interesting 'remix' of JaSoul's Breathe and the selection closes with the instrumental cut of the riddim.

Get this one if you're into smooth reggae music with a sophisticated touch!
