“Not sure if we will be producing many more Reggae Jugglings in the future as it’s becoming more and more challenging to release that sort of project in this format. Thanks to each and everyone who are continuing supporting our reggae productions and who has done so over the years!! We are still trying to produce songs with a positive message which deserves in our opinion much more support especially with all that is going on in the world today!!!”
This statement on Maximum Sound’s Facebook page that is featured in the announcement of the release of a brand new reggae/one drop riddim is quite surprising even though one knows it’s hard to make a real profit in today’s music industry to keep things going. For about 30 years, producer Frenchie’s mighty Maximum Sound label has released a whole bunch of first class reggae riddims voiced by an impressive list of topnotch artists as well as very talented upcomers. Knowing that this might stop makes one really sad, especially when listening to the latest reggae juggling called Love And Love Alone 2022 Riddim which sounds great and includes a few stellar efforts.
Taking on the vocal duties at the start of this juggling is a fine trio of artists consisting of Maximum Sound’s usual suspects; Christopher Martin, Busy Signal, and Pressure Busspipe. Christopher Martin gets the ball rolling with the sublime title track Love And Love Alone. With the latter, he shows that, apart from romantic styled reggae music, he’s also able to deliver a noteworthy tune full of consciousness. Next comes Busy Signal, who delivers the matching praising tune Thank You Jah. Pressure Busspipe’s powerful social commentary Too Bad is definitely one of the highlights here. The uplifting Rise & Shine by Stevie Face & I-Octane, one of the last people one would expect to see alongside the sweet-voiced singer, turns out to be a winner, which also goes for the conscious No Escape by underrated vocalist D-Major. Next comes Mash Up Her Brain by Delly Ranx, a song that talks about jealousy in a relationship. Although it is a decent cut, there’s nothing special about it. Ginjah pushes his voice as much as he does on other records on the all in all solid Selfish. The last vocal piece here is delivered by the lovely Lia Caribe from Mandeville JA, who treats the listener to the enjoyable lovers piece Why. The juggling is rounded off by Gregory Morris whose Dub & Dub Alone lets vocal snippets going in and out of the dubbed up version of the riddim.
Another high-quality reggae juggling from one of the best labels in the business.
