Five cuts as a fine foretaste of the soon to be released "Guala Guala" riddim album. The first tunes of this infectious and very danceable bashment riddim with a soca-like beat were unleashed as 45s in March 2004 on the "Reggae Vibes" label and featured the usual dancehall suspects. Riding the riddim to full satisfaction are the inevitable Vybz Kartel, who delivers a tune with (censored) explicit lyrics in his well known style, the hit duo Tanto Metro & Devonte, and the powerful deejay Spragga "Di" Benz. Lady Saw's "Na Walk Out" is a matching cut, while Sizzla's "Party" is a rather mediocre effort. Already looking forward to the full length "Guala Guala" set that will also feature Tanya Stephens' "To The Top", Wayne Marshall's "Rude Boys", Anthony B's "Salt Thing", Ward 21's "Sitting On Chrome", and "Jamaica" by Rally Bop, to name a few.
