Earlier this year Phillip "Fatis" Burrell made his welcome return in the reggae arena with the "Royalty" and "Long Days Short Nights" riddims on his respected Xterminator label. Besides featuring Sizzla and Turbulence, artists whose careers were launched by "Fatis" Burrell in the 1990s, these riddims were furthermore voiced by new talents Jesse Royal and Kayla Bliss.

Now Phillip "Fatis" Burrell's Xterminator imprint steps forward once again with four solid to excellent cuts on the brand new "Danger In Your Face" riddim. Besides the usual suspects Sizzla, Jesse Royal and Kayla Bliss, the line-up now also includes real fine singer I-Wayne. All four artists deliver respectable efforts on a great sounding riddim. First there's Sizzla's scorcher "What's Wrong With The Picture". The reggae star's earliest works with "Fatis" Burrell have proven that the celebrated producer has the ability to bring out the best in Sizzla, and here he does it again! "What's Wrong With The Picture" and the other current Xterminator releases ("See Me" on the "Royalty" riddim and "Burn Dem Schism (Out My Way)" on the "Long Days, Short Nights" riddim), make one eagerly awaiting Sizzla's new album from the Xterminator label.

Jesse Royal already drew attention with "Singing The Blues" and the wicked "Hatred Is The Obsolete Route", but with the awesome "One Eye Open" he fully shows that he's an exceptional talent. This young artist his a distinctive vocal style and also lyrically he knows how to keep the listener involved till the very end. Another very talented artist is 23 year old Brooklyn, NY native, Kayla Bliss, who vocally shines bright with her wonderful lovers piece "Everything". I-Wayne, whose 2004 breakthrough hit "Can't Satisfy Her" -- describing the desperate reality of prostitution, poverty, and sexually transmitted disease in Jamaica -- brought him to the attention of the international reggae massive, needs no further introduction. His "Love Addiction" is a real solid lovers tune, delivered in his instantly recognizable vocal style, which is like a sweeter version of Pinchers'.

The digitally released "Danger In Your Face" EP is another worthwhile release coming out of the Xterminator production camp.
