Black Star Foundation from Amsterdam, Holland, comes up with their first dancehall riddim, the very infectious punchy "Bad Girls", built by the well respected Firehouse Crew. The latter, formed by core members Donald Dennis, George "Dusty" Miller and Paul "Wrongmove" Crossdale, have been involved in countless recordings for a variety of Jamaican producers. Besides that they have also been producers in their own right and toured the world with artists like Sizzla and Luciano to name only two.
The riddim, voiced by national as well as international artists, was recorded in 2009 at the Anchor Studio in Kingston, Jamaica. The first tune on the "Bad Girls" riddim to hit the streets was the solid combination tune "How Do You Want It (Bad Girls)" by (Lady) K-Wida & Lady G. And now there's a juggling set, which includes that tune and five more cuts across the riddim.
Trinidadian singer Marlon Asher bursted on the international reggae scene in 2006 with his international smash "Ganja Farmer", and since he has been putting out a few other popular tunes including "Fit And Strong". After "Ganja Farmer" and "Ganja Cowboy", Marlon Asher returns to that subject matter once again with "Ganja Work". The latter is one of the highlights on the riddim, with matching efforts being Turbulence's "Learn To Love Each Other" and Smiley's "Bigger".
All songs, produced and mixed by Donald 'Tixie' Dixon (Jamaica) and Asher E (Holland), create a real nice dancehall vibe and are worth checking.
