"Jamdown - 5th Anniversary Edition" is the perfect compilation set for anyone who wants to catch up with some of the biggest reggae and dancehall hits, all of them previously available on various compilation albums that have been released by Jamdown Records in the past five years. On this double cd avid reggae/dancehall fans are treated to many namebrand artists who deliver their deadly goods over the hottest riddims. But this set not only includes many great artists that Jamaica has to offer, it also features ace producers such as Tony Kelly, Richard Martin, Patrick Roberts, Steely & Clevie, Mark Hudson, Donovan Germain and Dave Kelly, to name a few.
Disc one mainly gathers dancehall outings and features riddims such as "Kiki", "Filthy", "Hurricane", "Faith" and "Scarface", while disc two focusses on reggae music with riddims like "Nanny Goat", Joe Frazier and "Timeless". All is presented in a newly remixed continuous mega mix, flawlessly mixed together by Jazzy T of Renaissance, one of Jamaica's top sounds. With no fillers to be found and many killers around you can't go wrong with this very enjoyable double cd. One to get any party going!! Well worth checking out.
