This 12" single is a further proof of the incredible versatility of vocal styles that has become trademark of the New York based deejay/singer/rapper Shinehead. It unmistakably confirms he has the talent and skills to express them at a high level. Olivia captures Shinehead singing a solid song in fine "lovers rock" style. He delivers his lyrics across a nice sounding riddim and the layers of harmonies fit this tune very well. "Shinehead deejaying in Jamaican fashion" is the key sentence when it comes to talking about the tune on the flipside. With God bless youth he delivers a real dancehall killer utilizing the appealing "Lecturer" aka "Handle the ride" riddim to its fullest. Great tune !
