Last year Peter Jackson aka Galaxy P managed to establish himself as one of the top producing dancehall stars, thus taking his place among fellow artists such as Mr. Vegas, Red Rat and Goofy. It was with the release of hard hitting riddims like "X-5" and "Diesel" on his own Rattler Records, that this artist turned producer attracted notable attention in the dancehalls worldwide. Now Peter "Galaxy P" Jackson has unleashed his next bashment riddim called "Trafalga", a mid-tempo bounce created by Dave Kelly, Suku of Ward 21, Paul "Wrongmove" Crossdale, Wycliffe "Steely" Johnson and Galaxy P himself. All tracks featured on this "Riddim Driven" set are pumping with synthesized string hooks and head bobbing drum pattern, peppered with pulsing sound effects. Starting off this album is the combination Bounty Killer & Angel Doolas with "Bounty", a wicked tune that starts and keeps the party going. Other notable cuts on the riddim that will please the avid dancehall massive are "Mi Food" by Cobra, Buju Banton's "Workable", Buccaneer's "Dance Gal", Galaxy P's "Gunz Wi Have", Roundhead's My Crew" and "Bad Mine" by Determine.
