Producer, musician and hitmaker Paul "Computer Paul" Henton has brought together a great bunch of established and up-and-coming Jamaican artists to voice the "Wonderland" riddim, an original musical backdrop that is predestined to take its place among popular and also successful riddims like for example "Drop Leaf", "Dreams", "Istanbul" and "Seasons" to name only four. Recorded and mixed (by Lynford "Fatta" Marshall of Fat Eyes) at Bootcamp Recording in Kingston JA this set of double A-sided 7" singles includes some real good efforts.

"One More Try", an aching love song by the three young ladies of MBC (Make Boys Cry), has already made a serious impact in Jamaica as the single is steadily climbing in the Reggae Charts. It's the singing interspersed with some deejaying and the harmonies that gives this tune a special flavour. On the flipside you'll find Natural Black's emotional outcry "Joy & Pain", a boom tune and truly one of the standout cuts for the riddim. Stevie Face's teaming up with Computer Paul has been a real good move in the musical career of this fine singer. Having gained recognition and appreciation as a crooner one would expect a lovers tune from Stevie Face, not least because the "Wonderland" is the kinda riddim that perfectly suits the lovers mood. However with the conscious "How Come" the sweet-voiced singer shows that he's equally at home with songs that deal with matters of the heart and reality tunes.

Lutan Fyah impresses with the beautiful ode to his queen, "Lead Me To Your Doors", for which he utilizes a singing style rather than the rougher singjaying he's known for. It's good to have Twiggy (yes! the same that recorded for Donovan Germain's Penthouse imprint) back on the track. With "You & You Alone" she delivers a nice lovers piece worth of hearing. Besides having an unexpected Twiggy appereance on the riddim it's also a pleasant surprise that Lady Patra plays a part in this juggling affair, because a new single from her has been long overdue. The solid "First Nite" shows that she's still a name to watch for. Ice Man, whose vocal style somewhat sounds like Beres Hammond, comes up with a matching cut called "I Want Her Back".

Norrisman's decent "The World Is Love" is one of the few conscious tunes for the riddim, while the silky voice of Tony Gold (half of the duo Brian & Tony Gold) shines bright in the lovers piece "Here Comes Lonely Again". "Love Is The Answer" sees authentic Jamaican Dub Poet Delroy Chandler aka DCYR chanting his lyrics in his own unique style with Singing Melody taking care of the verses. Talented songstress Rovletta, backup vocalist for Damian "Jr Gong" Marley, steps forward with the soulful "It's Strange".

Frankie Paul's big comeback song "I'll Never Walk Away", another standout tune across the "Wonderland" riddim, is paired with the appealing "Caught You Up" from a beautiful new songstress named Tina Nunez (born Christina Campbell, daughter of the legendary Cornell Campbell). Anthony Red Rose, the conscious dancehall singer with classics like "Tempo" and "Under Mi Fat Ting" in his songbook, has never been a high prolific artist but when he records a tune it's mostly worthwhile hearing. He's a storyteller whose carefully crafted lyrics often strikes a chord with the listeners of his records and "Cities Don't Sleep" is no exception. Big tune!!! Negril's rising star Timmy B (Timmy Burrell) shows potential with "It's My Time Now".

All in all a great riddim with a whole heap of worthy vocal cuts, so far only available on 7" vinyl. Check it out while you can!
