Jamaican Buggie Productions presents its first 7" selection,
the 'Dirty Heart'-riddim produced by E. 'Buggie' Burrell, that could be heard
first almost 7 years ago, when Anthony B's "Dutty Heart (Dem A Carry)" was
included (as one of the best tunes) on his strong "That's Life"
album. Showing how fabulous he can sound over a roots riddim Beenie Man delivers the brilliant
warning today could be "Just Your Time" to all the youths dem a deal
wid di crime in both the clean (Radio Edit) and the (Raw)
version although in my opinion that isn't too much rawer. The next 45 couples
lovers tune "Full Up My Girl Head I Think" with Warrior King's great conscious
"On My Knees I Pray" and both exploit the strength of this extremely
strong riddim to the utmost as well.|
In his strong contribution Luciano also, like Beenie Man, tries to convince the rudeboys to cool in his "Bad Boy Put It Down" with the never disappointing Guyanese singjay Natural Black delivering his advice "Make Good Use Of Your Time" more than convincingly. Anthony B's original, almost 7 years ago recorded and not having lost anything of its impact it had then, "Dutty Heart (Dem A Carry)", is another standout tune and so is Suga Roy & Conrad Crystal's mellow but truly uplifting "Make It One Day" on the flipside.
The last single released in this selection features Fantan Mojah in very fine form supported by great (uncredited) female backing vocals, bringing his positive message that "My Works Will Be Reality" across this wicked "Dirty Heart Riddim" that is included on this 7" in its clean version, to round off a selection of tunes distributed by France's Irie Ites that should make it to all 7" buyers and boxes of soundsystem selectors.
