Once more Jamdown Records releases a nice dancehall album within the "continuous mix" concept. "Mo Music Mega Mix" is mixed by Massive B's Bobby Konders and Jabba and features two dancehall riddims delivered "inna sound system stylee", of course with no gaps from beginning to end. The first part of the mix contains an appealing modern dancehall riddim followed by the "Speed" aka "2002" riddim, a fast-paced beat-dominated dancehall riddim that includes a guitar sample taken from "surf music" - coming out of California in the early 60's - flowing in and out the riddim. Although the tracklisting of this album doesn't include renown dancehall heroes it features Scare Dem Crew members Nitty Kutchie, Boom Dandimite, Elephant Man and Harry Todler alongside General B and Round Head from the Monster Shack Crew, some of the hottest artists of the day who are running t'ings in the dancehalls. They and artists like Lexxus, Alley Cat and Tony Curtis deliver enough solid contributions to make this an album well worth checking out !
