Donovan "Vendetta" Bennett's Don Corleon label is once again featured in Greensleeves' ever growing series of "one rhythm" sets. The young budding production talent follows up his popular and hugely successful "Mad Ants" riddim with another slice of minimalist hardcore dancehall madness. Keywords for this brandnew riddim are 'up-tempo', 'very catchy', 'entertaining' and 'dancefloor filler'. Recorded and mixed at the Vendetta Studios in Kingston, Jamaica, "Krazy" mainly features the same names that previously appeared on the "Mad Ants" set and thus we're not only treated to an all star crew including Sizzla, Wayne Wonder, Bounty Killer, Anthony B, Junior Kelly and Buju Banton, but also to some new names like for example Kolly C, Chaos, Calico and Regan. Maddest tunes around are Elephant Man's wicked title track "Krazy", Sizzla's awesome "No Look Pon People", Ward 21's insane "Rhyme", Determine's surprisingly good "Top Form", "Nah Force" by Bounty Killer & Angel Doolas, "Crazy Feeling" by Elephant Man & Wayne Wonder, and "Why You Doing It" from the men of the moment, Wayne Marshall & Vybz Kartel. Also worth of hearing are Buju Banton's "Nothing But Love", Alozade's "Hotter", Lukie D's "Gal You Nah" and Junior Kelly's "Closer".
"Krazy" is the epitome of bashment excitement, perfectly designed to twist and pummel dancer's limbs into submission.
