If you're ready to catch up on what's been happening in the dance in the last few months tune in to "Ragga Ragga Ragga 10". Packed with 18 current thrillers this tenth release in Greensleeves' "Ragga Ragga Ragga" series features all the dancehall heroes of the day, whose music is revered by both hardcore and mainstream audiences alike. This album has excellent production quality and a track listing that makes you really appreciate this fact. Take for example the opener of this album, Beenie Man's melodic tune "Who am I (Zim Zimma)", at this very moment charting big in the U.K. (reggae charts as well as the national chart). Included on this compilation are five other great cuts across this Jeremy Harding produced riddim (tracks 4, 8, 11, 14 & 17), thus giving you the full treatment of this wicked riddim.
Nowadays no dancehall compilation can do without ragga's new generation Red Rat, Goofy and Hawkeye. Originally out of Danny Brownie's Main Street camp these youngsters caused a sensation when they bursted on the scene in 1997. On this set they are present with tunes recorded for Danny Brownie's "Main Street Records", Shane Richards' "Shines Productions" and Andrew Bradford's (aka Buccaneer) "Opera House". Furthermore this compilation album features solid performances from ragga mainstays such as Beenie Man, General Degree and Mad Cobra.
Almost every track is a tried and trusted hit, so this is truly real value for money, especially if a wicked ragga/dancehall treatment is your "piece of cake". Need we say more ?!
