G-Whizz's single "Music" -- about the important role music plays in society -- was the very first tune we heard across the Deeboz Muzik's produced "A Little Bit More" riddim, before this 12 track one-riddim set reached us. We classified "Music" as a real nice tune... "vocally good, but lyrically it doesn't have that much to offer". However we instantly found the riddim that underpins the G-Whizz piece truly wicked. It is based on the Dennis Brown song "A Little Bit More", which is featured on his Joe Gibbs produced 1982 album "Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow". The riddim is a great reworking played by Noel Alphonso (drums), Val Douglas (bass), Mitchum "Khan" Chin (guitar) Sidney Mills (keyboards), Christopher "Skyjuice" Burt (percussion) and Dean Fraser (horns). The latter was also involved in laying down the original riddim track.

This compilation enlists the talents of the new wave of roots artists emerging from Jamaica including Chezidek, Lutan Fyah and Ras Myrhdak, great vocalists like Lukie D and Tony Curtis and up-and-coming artists such as Snypah and Cha'Maine, all of them giving their personal touch to the riddim. Each contribution has its own merit, but in particular Lutan Fyah's "Be Real", Lukie D's lovers tune "Make Me Smile", Ras Myrhdak's "Gonna Tell Ur Friends", and "Lock Down" by Tony Curtis are great voicings and form the main pillars of the selection. Also worth of hearing are Chezidek's "Soul Food", Qshan Deya's "Youths Need Family" and Cha'Maine's "Friends & Lovers".

All in all "A Little Bit More Riddim" offers a fine selection from start to finish.
