Dynasty Records drops their latest riddim, an uptempo one drop riddim called "Crunch Time". The label was founded in 2007 by Dan Grossman and Nick Dubitzky and is based out of Seattle, WA. Dynasty seeks to bring Jamaican reggae music to a broader market while bridging the genre with contemporary pop music. The musical hit-making team consists of Dan Grossman and Michael Gore. They have worked with a long list of reggae artists including Sizzla, Vybz Kartel, Lutan Fyah, Capleton, Luciano and Delly Ranx to name but a few.
In 2010 Dynasty built, mixed and mastered the "9 To 5" riddim, which was released by Bread Back Production out of Kingston, Jamaica. The next year they returned with a riddim called "Steady Flow", which was released by GT Muzik and featured tunes from Sizzla, Khago, Teflon, Lutan Fyah, Delly Ranx and many more. Since then they have released a slew of fine singles and one riddim projects, such as "Upliftment", "Inna Life" and "Crown H.I.M.".
The infectious "Crunch Time" riddim is voiced by some of reggae's top names like Delly Ranx, whose top-notch tune Real Fathers is a tribute to the 'real men who care about the youth'. UK Superstar Gappy Ranks tells what he would do if he was president, very nice 'herb' tune! Bobby Hustle keeps on releasing great tunes. Here he teams up with unknown vocalist Sensation. Lutan Fyah rarely puts out a weak tune. His contribution Real people showcases the man's talents to the max! We never had heard of Jus Goodie till we listened to this set. Justin Goodman (Jus Goodie) happens to be a multi talented artist, who has shared the stage with the likes of Luciano, Gregory Isaacs, Morgan Heritage, Anthony B, The Meditations and many more. The highlight has to be the combination tune Can't Live Good from Richie Spice and Jah Sun. The latter is a California based reggae artist and founding member of the Redemption Band. For all Mix Freaks... Unity Sound out of Japan has put out a nice Riddim Mix of "Crunch Time".
Dynasty Records, keep up the good work!
