This compilation album brings forward the skills and abilities of four
promising singers and deejays out of western Jamaica heading for making a
name in reggae music. If the material on this sampler is any indication
the future certainly looks bright. The CD mainly contains message songs
with a strong conscious vibe alongside a few lovers tunes. Most of the
tunes are done over fresh and good sounding riddims, provided by some of
the best musicians like Sly Dunbar, Danny "Axeman" Thompson and Dean
Fraser. Our favorites include the combination Mr. Peck & Hii Fii with "Red
light", Inglish's "Rise up", and Mr. Peck' s "Mama don't worry", which is
laid over the killer "Heathen" riddim (courtesy of Barry O'Hare), one of
1996 most popular.
