DJ Frass, real name Kimani Palmer, was born and raised in Spanish Town. At a very early age he got involved in the music scene. At the moment he's one of Jamaica's most prolific producers, and he has scored with riddims like Buss Pipe, Israel, Hotta Clapz, Cleara, Dash Out and Shadow, to name but a few. His latest riddim project is titled "Times Square". It's a smooth contemporary one drop reggae riddim and was built by David 'Hizzle' Hayle of Chimney Records.

I-Octane's rendition of the version is just awesome. Backed by a soulful female vocal group he lays down a perfect roots reggae tune. Zamunda from St. Ann has a powerful voice and his tune Chatty Mouth is truly above average. Ce'Cile's voice is more suited for dancehall tunes, but with Priceless she delivers a nice effort, while Chris Martin sings about "something big is gonna happen in 2012" in his tune 2012.

Excellent riddim, and hopefully some more artists will be able to voice it!
