As the second commercial release drawn from their great third album "Next!" Germany's dancehall caballeros Seeed (who released in collaboration with Pionear and his Germaican Records their 'Rodeo'-riddim to conquer the dancehalls) selected the albums opener "Schwinger", a great humorous boast in fine dancehall style. It's followed by the not yet commercially released "King Rodriguez", a great track over a latin beat (yes that's right, not latin-influenced or latin-tinged, but Latin - with a capital L) with great horn riffs, that was till now only available as a demo on the November edition of the German hip hop magazine Juice-CD. The videoclip of "Aufstehn!" on their rootsy heavily bass driven 'High Noon'-riddim featuring Atlanta's Cee-Lo Green, the most commercially successful single in the band's history is included, as well as the videoclip of "Schwinger". Very nice videos, a great tune chosen as second commercial single release from the album and a great EP exclusive maintain Seeed's strong position in the dancehalls and the charts.
