Sean Paul, one of the most promising talents in today's Dancehall music, has underlined this status with his excellent debut album Stage One, which recently managed to get a #2 Billboard Reggae album charting. Sean Paul voiced his debut single, entitled "Baby Girl", for producer Jeremy Harding's 2 Hard Records label in 1996. "Fit and Legit", "Deport Them", and "Infiltrate" are among the tunes which have helped establish Sean Paul's name in the Dancehall scene throughout the following years. In order to take things to the next level, Sean Paul teamed up with producer Daniel Abbott and launched Bassline Records. Both owners create, write and produce the music for the label. On "Sean Paul Presents Titanium 2000" the duo present their first efforts to the Dancehal massive, being 12 pieces to the fresh "Titanium 2000" riddim, a strong dancehall beat with a touch of hip-hop.
Some of today's hottest deejays are featured on this entertaining "one riddim" album. Solid deliveries can be credited to the much promising newcomer Kiprich, Spragga Benz, Delly Ranks, and Mr. Vegas, the latter with a message to all the ladies in "Big Corruption". Then the standout tracks : the hard hitting "Bout It, Bout It" from Elephant Man & Lexxus; "Nah Stray" from Sean Paul himself, in which he showcases his concise lyrical style to full effect; "Sometimes" from the up-and-coming Zumjay, who has managed to find a nice flow across the riddim; and also the wicked combination tune "Nah Move Right" from Sean Paul & Looga Man.
So, if you want to "mash up di place"!, this 'one riddim" set might fit you well!! Recommended to play it very LOOOOUUUUUD!!
