Remember Desmond Dekker's big international summer hit "007 (Shanty Town)" from 1967?! This Leslie Kong produced tune is the most enduring and archetypal of all so-called rude-boy records featuring one of the most infectious riddims ever to come from the Beverley's studio band. Now here comes a truly wicked version of that great riddim, courtesy of producer Ingo Rheinbay of Pow Pow Productions from Cologne, Germany. The "Shanty Town (aka Double 'O' Seven)" riddim follows up the original "Celebrate", Pow Pow's first bashment riddim. Although remakes of classic riddims are no rarity in the history of Jamaican music, it doesn't happen that often that we're treated to such a well refurnished version of a shimmering rocksteady beat. Pow Pow's "Shanty Town" is an outstanding new version which fully benefits from a clear, bouncing sound and authentic touch. Available are eight 7" singles, all of them worth of hearing. The artists featured here, including namebrand Jamaican stars such as Sizzla, Anthony B and Luciano and up-and-coming talents like Turbulence and Elijah Prophet, deliver solid to excellent efforts on the riddim. It's almost impossible to pick the standouts as every tune has its own merit and is truly above par, so let's just point out that we're particularly fond of Anthony B's "Time For The Love", Luciano's "Love & Devotion", Turbulence's "Ethiopia Awakes", Sizzla's "Can't Keep Us Down", Jah Mason's "Too Much Dying" and "The Wiff" by Daddy Rings. As already stated... great riddim and wicked tunes, so check these 45s while you can!!
