The roll call of impressive dancehall newcomers from Jamaica in the year 2000 included names like Danny English, Zumjay, Kiprich, Madd Anju, Sugar Slick and Wayne Marshall. Although all these artists have managed to become familiar names among dancehall followers, it's singer Wayne Marshall who has constantly shown good potential over the past three years. Great efforts on some of dancehall's hottest riddims such as "Diwali", "Liquid", "Time Travel" and "Party Time", and notable guest appearances with his musical mentor Bounty Killer on hits like "Sufferer" and "Smoke Clears", propelled his career in high gear. In a relative short period of time Wayne Marshall has built a core dancehall fan base and his popularity seemingly grew with each tune he released. Now the Kingston, Jamaica based singer comes up with his much anticipated debut album entitled "Marshall Law". The surprisingly well varied cd contains a nice introduction plus 18 tunes from some of dancehall's top producers including Baby G of "King Jammy's Productions", Jeremy Harding, Donovan "Vendetta" Bennett of "Don Corleon", Troy Rami of "Black Shadow" and Steven "Lenky" Marsden of "40/40 Productions".
