From the hot Miami hit house of Richard "Richie D" Martin , the infamous producer/selector that brought you hit riddims like "Faith" ("Hands Up" by Mr. Vegas, "Faith" by Tony Curtis), "Groovin" ("Heaven Sent" by Spragga Benz, "Sweet Lady" by Tony Curtis), "Broadway" and "Scotch Bonnet" comes his latest riddim called "Hydro".
The album is filled wall to wall with talent and features outstanding efforts across the infectious riddim. Dancehall singer Mr.Easy opens the album with Angel In Disguise, a strong lovers tune that will please dancehall queens across the dancehall globe. Lady Saw gives you a smashing reworking of the pop song 'Break My Stride' and she calls it Can't Tie Me Down. Bounty Killa does a fine job across the riddim together with Fiona who delivers some sweet harmony vocals. Mega star Sean Paul lays down a burnin' remix across the riddim, whereas the dancehall team Mr.Vegas and Mr. Lexx bubble 'n' wine across a melody line of the pop tune 'Do That To Me One More Time'. Great tune !!
Dancehall diva Tanya Stephens keeps coming on stronger, check out her vicious tune All Night. The Ward 21 crew is present here in their unmistakable style and fashion with Go No Where. More guided-missile shots come from Bling Dawg and Alozade.
Wrap it up and pack it up soundbwoy....boomblast album !
