After having released the juggling projects "Hatafayabun", "Dancing Machine" and "Mr. Money Man", Geneva's Evidence Music - a record label, recording studio, event promotion company founded in 2013 by Little Lion Sound and Derrick Sound - unleashes its fourth riddim set entitled "Indian Casino Riddim".

The "Indian Casino" is a fresh original riddim, made by Derrick Sound in collaboration with talented musicians like Yannick Gaudy (former guitarist of the Jetlakes) and Antonin Châtelain (drummer of Najavibes), while the backing vocals were done by Treesha Moore, Denham Smith and Nela. In contrast to the label's previous riddims, this one is an acoustic, pop soul influenced backdrop that gives room to the vocalists to fully showcase their skills and talent. Besides that it also urges them to come up with lyrics that keep the listener involved until the very end. After having listened to all the vocal cuts one can only draw the conclusion that all the artists involved in this project have fully succeeded in doing what they were expected to do.

We had little doubt that well established artists Peetah Morgan from Morgan Heritage and Luciano would do very well on the "Indian Casino" as they are known and respected for their vocal performances and their almost always up to par lyrical delivery. And indeed, both singers don't let you down as they come up with two great, inspired sung tunes, "Can't Break Our Soul" and "Conversation" respectively. Since he started to make a name for himself in the mid-90s, Anthony B not only has proven that he's a good lyricist but that he can handle any kind of riddim with ease. This he once again affirms with his solid contribution called "Life Good". Cali P impresses with his lyrical unique praising song about Africa, the beautiful "My Home". Wayne Smith, who sadly passed away earlier this year, delivers two cuts, "Chant Down" and "Call You", of which the latter is the slighly better effort. Upcoming artist Denham Smith is a name to watch for as he hardly ever disappoints and also Ras P shows that he's able to come up with a noteworthy tune. The set is rounded off with a clean version of the riddim, which is always good to have included on a 'one riddim' set.

The "Indian Casino" is a very enjoyable riddim project as it features compelling songs that entertain the listener to the fullest!
