The "3Wayz Riddim" is a brand new juggling project from Kingston JA based producer ZiggyBlacks, done in collaboration with New Sound Records and Macles Music Factory. ZiggyBlacks utilizes the talents of artists from all parts of the world who are not being highlighted in the international scene yet. Thus the tracklist lacks the usual dancehall suspects. But instead of making this set a not really interesting collection, it turns out to be truly refreshing to hear rather unknown voices, not in the least because the "3Wayz Riddim" is a very infectious dancehall backdrop with some nice diversifications, ensuring that boredom doesn't set in.

One of Antigua's favourite singers, Promise No Promises (born Kobla Mentor in Linden, Guyana), gets things started with a nice sounding lovers tune entitled "Girl Of My Dreams". Next drops the entertaining "Dah Style Deh" by Tmar, a multi talented singer/songwriter and music producer from Jamaica. The inclusion of a short Spanish guitar picking in support of the lyrics is a real nice addition. Third track of the opening part comes from Aska Lyrical, who is one of two Panamanian stars featured here. "Do Back" shows that he has a nice flow on this riddim, which makes that he seemingly effortless keeps the dancehall vibe floating. Likle Mystic is the other Panamanian star. He makes a good impression with "Girls Come Pose". Fine singer Timmi Burrell excels on "My Body With Yours", not only one of the highlights on this album but also our favourite track. Don't overlook New Trik either, as this 16 year old son of ZiggiBlacks shows potential with "Give It To Me Girl".

Play this "3 Wayz Riddim" in any club or at any party and you'll see that this one is a guaranteed dancefloor filler.
