Jamaica based new record label "AL.TA.FA.AN" have unleashed three solid to excellent cuts over a "live" laid wicked steppers riddim entitled "Stepping Stone". Fine roots singer Taffari is not only blessed with a good and appealing voice, but he shows that he is also able to write a decent conscious tune. "Shouldn't Dis The Giver" is an inspired effort, which keeps you involved till the very end. The same goes for Mikey General who lands with a hard roots tune, which truly can be reckoned to one of the singer's best deliveries. Also Pinchers comes up with a surprisingly solid conscious piece. For whatever reason this dancehall vet hasn't been able to deliver a real wicked tune for a long time, but "Heart Of Stone" features Pinchers at his very best, although he doesn't exactly performs in the style that put him on the reggae/dancehall map in the second half of the eighties.
