Various - Crime Scene Riddim

Bobby Konders’ big bad Massive B imprint is back with a new hard-hitting backdrop, “Crime Scene Riddim”. For the latter the producer – in collaboration with musician Madman Myrie and mixing engineer Tixxy – revisited the riddim known from Tenor Saw’s 1988 awesome tune “Who’s Gonna Help Me Praise”. Since 1991, the year Massive B was launched, the reggae dancehall fan has been treated to a string of stellar riddims that benefited from the Bobby Konders touch. The “Crime Scene” is another rougher than rough backdrop that fires on all cylinders, a certified winner in the dance halls.

Although short on tunes, the riddim makes a real impact. Massive B’s rising star Choppa Chop opens with the solid message tune “Me Nah Love”, in which he asks to stop the violence. Next comes top lyricist Agent Sasco (formerly Assassin) who excels with “Dominate” in which he bigs up all the top icons. Then it’s time for Burro Banton – an artist who has recorded extensively for Massive B – to deliver “Gangster Paradise”, a tune about the ghetto life as well as the beautiful life for tourists in Jamaica. King Kong’s “Legal” is a plea to legalize the good herb! Overall it are in particular Agent Sasco and King Kong who take top honours on the “Crime Scene” riddim, although the other two artists aren’t far behind.
