Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
K-Licious Music is the brand new label of producer/one-man-band/engineer Tony "CD" Kelly. He's a brother of Dave "Rudeboy" Kelly and whilst Dave left Penthouse to set up his Madhouse label Tony had been involved in major projects like the albums of Mad Cobra and Patra for Sony Music. Probably his best known dancehall project was the "Marathon" riddim, the riddim used for Snow & Nadine Sutherland's "Anything for you" with a host of Jamaican stars. Other recent projects were the "Cloak & Dagger" and "Odour" riddim released last year for Shocking Vibes and the successful Penthouse riddim "Up Close And Personal".

"Bookshelf" is the first project for his own label. The riddim has you moving immediately with its highly infectious synth phrase. Of course some of the finest and hottest dancehall artists are riding the riddim. Sean Paul proves to be one of the best new deejays of the moment on Deport Them as he did on other recent releases on Penthouse and 2 Hard. Of course the inevitable Mr. Vegas visited the studio to voice the riddim with a catchy dancehall tune as result. The perfect combination duo Devonte & Tanto Metro gives us the fine Say Wooee. Other versions on this essential dancehall riddim are delivered by Beenie Man, Lady Saw and Wayne Wonder.

Note: For those who can't get the 7" singles or can't play vinyl, you can find these versions - except the one by Wayne Wonder - one the "Bookshelf" riddim CD alongside five other versions.
