With the 1998 released compilation set "King Of Kings / Show Us The Way" Colin Levy's "Kings Of Kings" imprint delivered a noteworthy album featuring "roots & culture" as well as dancehall music. Now dancehall enthusiasts can purchase a fully loaded eightteen track album that focuses on the dancehall part of the "King Of Kings" label. The Tiger-sounding, inmensely popular in Jamaica, and newest dancehall sensation Zebra sets the pace with the wicked "Proud 2 Be Hot", a track that is followed by two cuts over the same riddim from dancehall mainstays Lady Saw and Beenie Man. The aforementioned three stars are joined by a roll call of Jamaica's finest dancehall deejays and singers as well as some lesser known but promising artists. Tracks that are going to fill the dance floor and will keep the rest room locked are Cecile Brandy & Captain Barkey's "Freaky Tonight" and its wicked answer version "Murder Tonight" by the female combination duo Tanya Stephens & Cecile Brandy. Excitement is also guaranteed when spinning Mikey Dangerous' "Performance Drive", Lady Saw's "Real Gallis" and "Ants" performed by Don Yute & Mr. Vegas.
The entire compilation provides the fitting enjoyment factor for all types of dancehall fans as it brings a well varied selection of contemporary dancehall flavours or as the title states "Millennium Dancehall Style".
