‘Oh no! What year is this?’ bawls Red Rat and which other tune than Prince’s ‘1999’ could better get relicked now as we are moving up to the next millennium? Salaam Remi and his Hot Ice Crew made a wicked dancehall version of this ‘80’s classic pophit featuring Monster Shack, Spragga Benz, Red Rat, Rayvon, High Plains Drifter, Nadine Sutherland and Scandal. With this Allstar line-up you can’t go wrong and I think this tune will be spinned in the dance till the very last minute of this year. Other versions of this riddim are provided by Monster Shack’s General B and Tomahawk, but they can’t compete with the first version. All singles are pressed on purple vinyl.
