After an absence of 6 years comes the return of the popular 'Greensleeves Sampler' series. This time around, the new Greensleeves series will be quarterly, appearing in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

This friendly mid priced Spring '08 sampler features Far I', the next single (licking the 'Unchained' riddim) from Chezidek from his top notch 'Inna Di Road' album. There's Richie Spice and Queen Ifrica with the two most popular cuts on the '83' riddim from producer Kemar McGregor. The combination Mykal Rose and Busy Signal -- roots meets dancehall -- perfectly explains to the world what it is to be a real Jamaican. On John John's 'The Mix' riddim we get treated to Buju Banton who gives us a dub-plate style sound tune.

In the biggest upset of the rising stars series in Jamaica, Lenya Wilks was voted out of the top three. Produced by Shane Brown for his Juke Boxx label she offers the original track Fly, which shows that she will be one to watch in 2008. Sweet voiced Sanchez returns in fine style with In Your Eyes for John John, who refreshed the 'Love I Can Feel' riddim. Ace producer Frenchie (Maximum Sound) recorded Lukie D's How Long across a refurnished version of the riddim that underpinned Joya Landis' rocksteady tune 'Perfidia'. From the same producer comes Alborosie's Holy Mount Zion, a relick of the 'Drum Song' riddim, here called 'BlackBoard'.

Jamaica's newest star Demarco follows up his massive hit 'Fallen Soldiers' with Better Jamaica, a tune he recorded for producer Shane Brown pon de 'Oscilator' riddim. Newcomer Zareb closes the album with a crucial taster from the highly anticipated forthcoming set on Greensleeves entitled 'The Cake Must Slice', produced by Matt Downs for Lion Vibes Sound & Music.
