Trainline Records, a young record company, puts out their latest effort called the "Utopia" riddim. They were also responsible for other 'one riddim' releases such as "Psalm 41" riddim, "Conquera" riddim and "Bing" riddim. This EP gives you 5 tunes on a polished smooth reggae riddim that will please any regular reggae fan. Songstress Twiggi opens the EP with "Where Is The Love". Her career started in the 1990s when she recorded some tunes for Donovan Germain's Penthouse Records. Since then she has been providing background vocals for a number of reggae's most successful stars and recorded nuff nuff tunes for herself. Her mezzo soprano voice is always very appreciated in the reggae industry. Here she makes a decent impression, and that makes us longing for more Twiggi!

Next highlight is provided by Pressure Busspipe whose "Love Is The Better Way" calls out to the youths that 'love is the better way'. Perfect Giddimani gained worldwide recognition for his reggae hit "Hand Cart Bwoy", which entered the Jamaican charts in 2004. Since then he has been constantly in the charts. In "My Life" he looks back on his life and draws his conclusions. Reggae veteran Freddie McGregor brings "Amaze Me", not his strongest tune. Up-and-coming singer Yanique Sasha delivers with "Thruth Is"... a nice effort. Hope to hear more from her.

Nice reggae juggling project.
