We must have overlooked the “Nice & Easy” riddim since it was already released at the beginning of 2018. Well, better late than never… here’s the review. It comes from the Germany based Oneness Records, with the production team consisting of BenJammin, Morry “Da Baron” (bass player of Dub Inc.) and mixing engineer extraordinaire Umberto Echo. They have turned Oneness Records into one of the most reliable imprints when it comes to creating some of the finest reggae music. They have worked with an array of well know artists in the genre, but also took much promising artists like Sarah Lugo, Naptali and Denham Smith to name only three under their wing.

Nice & Easy Riddim

The well structured reggae riddim sounds familiar, we’ve heard it on Iba Mahr’s curent EP, on which he delivered his solid lick of the riddim called “Family Not Friend”. The dubmix, in collab with Unmberto Echo, is thrown in for good measure, just like the instrumental cut of the riddim. Luciano’s “Nah Play Thing” opens this set in supreme style. The good sounding combination Sara Lugo and Randy Valentine display their vocal qualities with the lovers tune “Growing A Jungle”. Tydal Kamau, reggae crooner par excellence, shines on “My Paradise”. UK veteran deejay Macka B makes no mistake with his tune “Give Thanks”. With “Bad Mind People”, Naptali delivers a solid and expected type of tune which adds quality to the album as a whole. Chezidek performs in fine fashion, the riddim is tailor fit for his vocal style. Dancehall star Gappy Ranks adds some charactaristic dancehall flavours into the album. Nice shoot!
