"Greensleeves Rhythm Album" series presents the freshest new riddim from innovative producer Cordell "Scatta" Burrell, who has already unleashed some real hard hitting streetbeats including "Double Jeopardy", "C-4", "Martial Arts", "Famine" and earlier this year the highly acclaimed "Bad Company" riddim. With the Indian Tantric inspired "Coolie Dance" he delivers a catchy up-tempo backdrop with hypnotic handclaps voiced by a whole heap of Jamaican artists, newcomers as well as established names. When the first tones of the infectious "Coolie Dance" leap off the speakers you'll know that this one is a guaranteed dancefloor filler. So many cuts have already been issued on 7" singles that it would have been possible to release even two compilation sets. Even though this cd treats us to entertaining cuts from the unstoppable Elephant Man, T.O.K., new star Vybz Kartel, Ce'Cile, Wayne Marshall, Ward 21, Frisco Kid, Red Rat and up-and-coming talents Hollow Point and Kid Kurrupt, it's a pity that it lacks such great tunes like Ce'Cile's "Bare As She Dare", Sean Paul's "Feeling Alright", Elephant Man's "Head Gwan", Beenie Man's "Good Woe" and the combination tune "Tianne" by Tanto Metro & Devonte.
