Here's a new name, coming out of Kingston's dancehall scene, that you need to remember. Marcy Chin is still a young MC but she looks like she's willing to get her piece of the dancehall pie. Other female MC's like Capri J, Macka Diamond, K-Queens and others, get a serious challenger here. What differenciates her strongly from those other artists is a strong hip-hop influence in her deejaying and some sharp flows.

First to say is that Marcy Chin is now at one of the best school's possible : she's part, since a couple of years, of the Bada Bada Gang, formed by MC's/producers/riddim makers Ward 21. She's been spotted on stage with them during their European Summer Tour and is therefore making some fast progress in MC-ing skills and stage performance. During that tour, she met DJ Wicked-A, a young selector from Italy who is, alongside Italia's N1 DJ Mad Kid, the resident of Bologna's renowned Dancehall regular "Downtown Bash". Marcy Chin enjoyed the juggling skills of Wicked-A and the collaboration for the mixtape started from there.

Quality over quantity. The mixtape isn't that long, just less than 27 minutes, but contains some serious bangers. Included are the two tunes taken from Ward 21's latest album to date, where Marcy Chin is featuring : "Mic Magician" and "Wife VS Mate". The mixtape contains another killer combination between the teachers and the student with the track "The Bounce". Other tracks heavily feature her fellow Bada Bada Gang members like Point O for "Seh Dem A Seh", lady Timberlee for a very rough "Chatty Mouth Bwoy" and later on two cuts with Deewunn, who also released a mixtape recently. Unfortunately another excellent combo with Deewunn, "High Grade, White Rum" isn't included in the mix.

Furthermore Marcy Chin rides solo on some other tough dancehall riddims with sexy tunes like "Body Able" on the "Good Up" riddim or "Mi Nuh Care" on the "Dandymite" riddim. Some old-school feeling then appears in the mix with the great "When Again" on the "When Again" riddim, being a tribute to veteran DJ Tiger. To close in fine style, Marcy Chin rides on the classical "Stalag" riddim, mixing her raps with some cultural deejay flavour for a wicked "Outta Space Spliff".
