In 2005, after having done production duties for a family of musical geniuses known to many simply as "Daseca", the young ambitious Jamaican producer named aka Tha Producer founded his own TJ Records label and released his first riddim called "Bill Back" featuring cuts from Aidonia, Mavado and Sizzla to name only three. This was followed in 2006 by the "Show Off" riddim, which gave birth to Bounty Killer's "Bullet Proof Skin", Beenie Man's "Bullet Proof Vest", and Mavado's first hit tune "Last Night". Since then he has released a slew of riddims including "Skandal Bag", "Bottle Party", "Unfinished Business", "Fren Enemy", "Gaza World", "Double Trouble", "Snap Back", and "Smudge". Linton "TJ" White has also been responsible for the chart topping single "Wine Gyal" from Beenie Man.

And now there's the brand new "Live In Love", a smooth modern 'one drop' riddim voiced by a strong group of Jamaican artists along with foreign artists like J-Boog and Rasun. The lilting riddim takes off with Alaine's "Another Love Song", who previously (think Don Corleon's "Heavenly", Purple Skunk's "Istanbul" and Fresh Ear's "Guardian Angel" riddims) has shown that her style is well suited to these kinda r&b flavoured riddims. Tarrus Riley belongs to a select group of artists who hardly ever deliver a disappointing tune and this one is another solid effort. Just like Tarrus Riley's "Sorry Is Another Sorry Word", also the entertaining "Can't Get Over I" by the currently very popular I-Octane deals with matters of the heart.

One of the highlights is delivered by J Boog, whose "Love Me" can be compared with his breakthrough hit "Let's Do It Again" on Don Corleon's "Major" riddim. And the niceness goes on with Bugle's worthy conscious piece "It's A Journey" and "All I Wanna Do" by veteran Anthony Red Rose of "Tempo" fame. It's known that Linton "TJ" White does not confine himself to the talents of just the popular acts, but branches out everyday looking for fresh talent, here showcased by "Hard To Walk Away" by Rasun from California and Delando's "When Your Love Went Away". Both efforts are not so intoxicating as their predecessors and are rather mediocre tunes.

With this "Live In Love" riddim, Linton "TJ" White once again proves that he's a 'musically blessed producer'.
