Pow Pow Productions continues to deliver well produced and executed reggae music as they have unleashed another blazing hot riddim! After the dancehall oriented "Celebrate" and the real wicked and successful reworking of Desmond Dekker's "Shanty Town (Double 'O' Seven)" we're now treated to a new and crisp selection of tunes over their third big riddim, a fresh original called "Blaze". The latter is a wicked live "one drop" riddim that turns out to be the perfect backdrop for such top roots & culture artists out of Jamaica like e.g. Junior Kelly, Anthony B and Chuck Fender as well as typical Pow Pow artists such as Gentleman, Jah Mason and Turbulence. Available are fourteen cuts plus the version on a set of eight 7" singles, all worth of hearing as there's no weak tune around. Every song has its own merit and it proves almost impossible to point out the standouts. Thus we limit ourselves to our choice musical cuts that include Junior Kelly's "Blaze", Chuck Fender's "Cry For My People", Lutan Fyah's "Bits & Pieces", Gentleman's "Unconditional Love", Jah Mason's "My Way", Tippa Irie's "Everyday" and "Tell It Like It Is" by the underrated roots singer Mark Wonder. Besides these efforts one should definitely check out much promising new singer Platinum, who delivers a very good tune called "How I Feel". Wicked riddim and great tunes, so ignore at your peril!!
