Dredda Records, a Dutch record label specialized in roots reggae music that was founded in 2007 by Decko, Layan, Miriam and Phibbs, has since put out some real solid releases including the 2010 released "Guntown" riddim, Ziggi Recado's EP's "Liberation" and "Liberation 2.0", Joggo's debut album "Modern Rockers Vol. 1" and singles by the very talented co-founder/songstress Miriam Simone. And now, towards the end of the year 2014, producers "Decko" and "Marvin" aka "Marro" (the driving the forces behind the Dredda productions) come up with another real good release, the "Honour" riddim.

Besides well-known reggae warriors like Anthony B and Pressure Busspipe, this juggling project also features the vocals of talented artists who are working hard to achieve a breakthrough in the international reggae scene. In particular Chevaughn and, of course, Miriam Simone are the ones who have already proven to have potential, but here also BeneluXXL Reggae Contest 2014 winner Rapha Pico shows that he's a name to watch for in the near future. It's singjay Anthony B who sets the tone for the "Honour" riddim with a big spiritual song called "Shine Your Light". Pressure Busspipe delivers the solid "Give Thanks For Life", an effort with a similar vibe and feel as the Anthony B tune. With "Cah Seh Mi Never", the sweet-voiced Chevaugn shows that the "Honour" is also a perfect backdrop for a lovers piece. Miriam Simone once again makes clear that she's a major talent (looking forward to her debut album), while Rapha Pico makes a truly serious impression with the awesome "I'm A Dread". Included is the instrumental version of the riddim, which is always good to have on a 'one riddim' set.

In all a release well worth checking out!
