"Pharaoh", the follow up to last year's "Cure" riddim, is the next big bashment riddim released by Germany's premier dancehall label Germaican Records. The creators of the "Pharoah" are Berlin based outfit Seeed, actually also responsible for the highly anticipated rootsy and "live" played "Doctor's Darling" riddim (which soon will hit the streets again with a new bunch of tunes). However, the "Pharoah" comes with a totally different mood and vibe. It's a digital riddim incorporating a phat beat, only slightly sweetened by oriental layers. Best efforts are Sizzla's "Obstacles (Pionear Refix)", delivered across a stuttering remix of the riddim and Tanya Stephens' Lock Down". The latter seemingly feels comfortable when she has to voice German produced riddims as she has always delivered excellent singles on the "Germaican" label. Degree comes with a good flow and delivers a matching piece, while German veteran Dr. Ring-Ding (performing in English) makes a serious impression with his political message tune entitled "Bombs Over Baghdad". Last but definitely not least were treated to a notable effort from Seeed, whose "Music Monks" is an entertaining tune well worth hearing. Check them out!!
