Greensleeves Sampler Volume 23 is an essential collection of eighteen of the hottest reggae, ragga and dancehall hits of today. In a series that has been highly acclaimed for its exploration through the various styles of reggae music, the album manages to touch all styles of reggae from dancehall to conscious reggae. Greensleeves Sampler 23 features most of the current anthems and reggae chart hotshots including Jamaica's No.1 dancehall artist "The Energy God" Elephant Man who delivers his No.1 hit "The Bombing", the massive hit from Sizzla entitled "Karate" and Alozade's Jamaica, both across the wicked "Martial Arts" riddim, Shabba Ranks' "More Pon More", Bounty Killer's I Am Who I Am, Capleton's "Log On Girls", and heaps of other big tunes and exclusives from Jamaica's highest grade entertainers. Check out brand new pieces from Capleton & Luciano - Never Want The Youths Dem Die (a.k.a Hail King Selassie)" - and Crissy D's "Make It Real Good" on Lenky's hype "Diwali" riddim, which is already mashing up the place in Jamaica and abroad. Also "Living In Hell" by the wicked combination Elephant Man & Ricky Rudie aka Bling Dawg, Mr. Vegas who hits the eagerly anticipated "Famine" riddim with "Popeeto" and the new anthem from T.O.K. Pengeleng, which comes on the hot "Hard Drive" riddim, are worth hearing.
This one's a killer pack !
