Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
In the summer of 2008 French record label Akom Records, the imprint of Marseille's backing band and riddim makers Dub Akom, signalled their arrival on the European reggae scene with the release of three singles for the fresh sounding "Vitamin" riddim voiced by big Jamaican names like Jah Mason, Lutan Fyah and Natty King. In that same year Garfield Delano Spence aka Konshens achieved his international breakthrough with the monster hit "Winner".

Since then both Dub Akom and Konshens have continued to attract notable attention from reggae connoisseurs and avid fans alike with their musical efforts. Now, in the fourth quarter of 2010, they have joined forces for the very first time and the result is a boom tune on Dub Akom's brand new "Bonafide" riddim. Konshens' catchy "Weak" is a so-called 'gal tune' delivered over a slow, laid back riddim created by real musicians. Konshens once again shows that he can do all types of songs in a very convincing way, while Dub Akom fully showcases their ability to maintain the quality of the riddims they create.

Konshens' "Weak" has whet our appetite for more versions on the "Bonafide" riddim, so Dub Akom...
