Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
The summer of 2012 sees the release of the "Leggo Di Riddim", which has been produced and arranged by Frenchie for Maximum Sounds' subsidiary label, Pull It Up My Selecta! Records. Since 1993 Frenchie has been responsible for producing some of the best reggae and dancehall. Throughout the years he has gained genuine respect for the high quality of his releases, which included fresh new material as well as revitalized classic riddims.

For the "Leggo Di Riddim", Frenchie returned to the days of rocksteady, when one of the most expressive vocalists in Jamaican music, Keith 'Slim' Smith delivered an impressive series of records for then emerging producer Bunny "Striker" Lee. One of the tunes Slim Smith recorded in those days was the soulful "Let Me Go Girl" on a riddim laid by Bobby Aitken & The Carib Beats. Frenchie got the original riddim track from Bunny Lee and after having done some overdubs he put it out on the streets again, now with worthwhile new cuts from current Jamaican stars like Tarrus Riley, Christopher Martin, Da'Ville and Ce'Cile and newcomer Ras Demo. Even the original vocals from Slim Smith can be enjoyed once again when listening to "Girl You Hold Me", the real nice combination tune with bad gyal Ce'Cile. Each tune has its own merit and is truly a joy to hear.

Released on limited edition 7" vinyl (so record collectors grab it while you can) and as digital download.
