"Heartbeat City" has released four roots 'n' culture 7" singles utilizing the same traditional style riddim (Studio One revisited ?!). All cuts are produced by Lincoln "Sugar" Minott, which mostly implies - as history has learned us - that we can expect some young and new artists who have been given the opportunity to make a record so that they can present themselves to the reggae community. No exception here as we can witness the efforts of two new singers, Marlon Stewart and Shalom, and singjay Pluckie Ranks alongside the "vets" Sugar Minott and Terry Ganzie. All four singles are decent efforts with Marlon Stewart making the best and most convincing impression - regarding his vocal style and lyrics - when it comes to talking about the newcomers and Terry Ganzie as the one who brings the combination song to a higher level.
