It's unbelievable in my opinion, following the success of early 2004's oriental percussion flavoured 'Ching Chong' and with the undisputed quality of earlier Black Shadow Records' riddim - the hiphop flavoured 'Surprise'-riddim and the 'Buzz'-riddim that brought dancehall once again back into the mainstream as the beat under Sean Paul's "Gimme The Light" - that early this year the release of Troyton Rami's latest riddim 'Blink' didn't have a much bigger impact. A very danceable and catchy riddim, completely meeting the high standard set by himself with his earlier productions. Probably it's the lack of a Sean Paul tune on this riddim, which is a shame, as this riddim seems build for him, but still there's the undeniable crossover hit potential of Rehka's "Let Me See You Clap" that had everything in it to bust as big as Nina Sky did. Big tunes by Assassin, especially Tanto Metro & Devonte, Wayne Marshall, Sasha, Mad Cobra, Spragga Benz feat. Briggy Benz, T.O.K. and all other tunes far above average and extremely catchy as well make this album the ideal vehicle to make this riddim rule dancehalls second time around this year. Absolutely recommended for the hardcore dancehall massive and as with Troyton Rami's earlier productions, for the more poppy dancehall listeners as well.
