Greensleeves near the end of 2003 released the "Dancehall Mix-Tape 1 ~ Bobby Konders "Mad Sick Head Nah Good" Mix" drawing then from their Greensleeves Rhythm Album Series. Now that the series has been dropped just a little less than one year ago after the release of "Greensleeves Rhythm Album #86 ~ Ghetto Whiskey", the 86th(!) volume in the series, at least Massive B's Bobby Konders - the producer, the man behind New York's most listened-to dancehall show on the famous Hot 97, that I used to listen too every week when I was working in NYC late 1999 - has been given the task to compile this "Greensleeves Records Official Mix Tape 2 ~ 90s Hardcore Ragga Dancehall Mix" and he proves he is the right man for the job.

Hardcore it is, only a lost singer to be found in a combination, but it is DJ tunes galore, over infectious hardcore dancehall (mid)90s riddims like Fat Eyes' 'Hot Wax', Jammy's 'Boy Nuh Run', 'Far East', How Yu Fi Sey Dat's 'Answer', Steely & Clevie's 'Skettel', Shocking Vibes' 'Corduroy', 'Sick', How Yu Fi Sey Dat's '1/4 To 12', Xterminator's 'Lots Of Sign', John John's 'Peanie Peanie', Jammy's 'Darker Shade Of Black', Fat Eyes' 'Side Kick' a.k.a. 'Stucky', Anthony Redrose & Bounty Killer's "Intimate", Shocking Vibes' 'Urkle' & 'Chronic', Big Yard's 'Boombastic', Jammy's 'Full Up', How Yu Fi Sey Dat's 'Guns And Roses', Ninja Ford & Ninjaman's "The Return ~ Father & Son" for Henry 'Junjo' Lawes, Jammy's 'Hollow Point', John John's 'Book Book Book', Capleton's "Husband Goody Goody" for Xterminator, John John's 'Gal', Jammy's 'Gangster' a.k.a. 'Carnival', Anthony Redrose & Malvo's 'Move It', Merciless "Ole Gallis" for Harvel 'Gadaffi' Hart's Annex and to close a 42 tunes long rollercoaster ride Bounty Killer's "See You No More (2004)" over Jammy's 'Rambo We Rambo'-riddim.

A great hardcore (DJ) mid 90s mix by Bobby Konders, but anyone who bought Beenie Man and Bounty Killer albums then and albums in Greensleeves' Ragga Ragga Ragga series as well will find not much on this CD he hasn't already got at full length in his collection. That being said, even if you do own almost every single tune compiled here, you will as a longtime fan of this ragga dancehall from the 90s surely have as much fun listening to this mix (of which I got a promotion copy thanks to the kindness of Münster's reggae (or better: Jamaican music) shop and reliable mailorder Irie Records) as I had. And if you're too young to have bought all these tunes first time around, this is your chance.
