Zion I Kings Riddim Series

Zion High Productions, one part of the acclaimed Zion I Kings collective which furthermore consists of I Grade Records & Lustre Kings, is responsible for the recently released “H.I.M.

After the “Jah Warriah Riddim”, “Nyacoustic Chants” and the “Marketplace Riddim”, the 9-track compilation “H.I.M. Teachings Riddim” is another sublimely laid backdrop coming from the US based Zion High Productions crew. This new juggling project features reggae heavy hitters long associated with the Zion I Kings label such as Pressure Busspipe, Lutan Fyah, Akae Beka and UK veteran Lloyd Brown as well as talented newcomers like Brazil based Amani ‘Kush’ Seearasta and Jamaican singer Jahbar I. And then there’s also Arkaingelle, who last year attracted notable attention with the solid ZHP produced album “Tru Da Fyah” and Trini artist Marlon Asher, whose 2005 breakthrough hit “Ganja Farmer” established his name world wide.

H.I.M. Teachings Riddim

So far, all of the releases in the Zion I Kings Riddim Series have been top notch projects and “H.I.M. Teachings Riddim” proves itself to be no exception. Pressure Busspipe, who absolutely shines whenever he voices a cut for the Zion I Kings collective, delivers the sterling sufferers piece “Uncomfortable”. The well respected Lloyd Brown comes up with “Musical Warrior”, a very good and entertaining song with nice vibes. It’s followed by Lutan Fyah’s “Test A Money”. Had to play this one several times to get a good feeling about this message tune. Amani Seearasta leaves a decent impression with “New Eduction”, while Marlon Asher delivers his goods in deadly style & fashion.

Recordings from the high prolific Akea Beka (previously known as Midnite and Vaughn Benjamin) for Zion High Productions and I Grade Records are always stamped with quality all over and this also goes for the compelling “Chieftess Of Spices”. With his remarkable “Tru Da Fyah” album, Arkaingelle showed that he’s an artist who deserves to be heard. This is affirmed by “Chubble”, one of the highlights on this set. Also pay attention to the passionate, militant and energetic Jahbar I, son of George “Dusty” Miller who is a great producer of music and the drummer in the Firehouse Crew. His “Powaz Of Luv” is a solid message tune worth hearing. “H.I.M. Teachings Version” rounds off this collection of tunes in Royal style.
