Leighton Walsh aka Walshy Fire was born in Miami and raised in Jamaica. As a youth, he traveled extensively, and it gave him an appreciation for other cultures. Walshy Fire was formerly a selector based in Brooklyn, New York, but now he's one-third of Major Lazer along with Diplo and Jillionaire and also works with Black Chiney, the Miami-based Jamaican collective of DJs, MCs, and engineers.

Walshy Fire's first riddim ever, the intoxicating "Confessional Riddim", features tunes from top-a-top artists Assassin aka Agent Sasco and Pressure Buss Pipe as well as pieces from upcoming female singer Denyque from Jamaica and Carlos Turner out of Antigua. "Confession", Assassin aka Agent Sasco's controversial lead single on the "Confessional Riddim", is an awesome cultural piece which sees the artist exploring vivid imagery from three perspectives, that of a politician, a police officer and a preacher. A real big tune and arguably one of Assassin aka Agent Sasco's best efforts in recent times. Pressure Buss Pipe delivers a truly wicked social commentary called "On & On", a song that deals with the preservation of life and violence in the ghetto. A totally different vibe drops in with the solid "Move On". The song, with lyrics both in clean and raw style, tells about a woman's strength to move on from a relationship into single life. Carlos Turner closes the EP in fine style with the spiritual "Closest Friend".

The "Confessional Riddim" EP is an appealing juggling project, definitely worthwhile checking out.
