"Virus" - the second installment of Greensleeves' 'rhythm album' series - collects versions over Madd Dawgz new 'Virus' riddim. Produced by Mikey Williams, engineer at Steely & Clevie's renown Studio 2000, Tony Thomas and Delon Reid of Manatee Records, this wicked, hardcore Dancehall riddim contains bits and pieces of Britney Spears' hitsingle "One More Time".
Besides unreleased cuts from Capleton, Red Rat and Degree, dedicated Dancehall fans are treated to another fourteen selections from all the usual symptoms. This set not only presents the Dancehall elite, but also boasts the cream of new Jamaican Dancehall talent. Up-and-coming artists like Lexxus aka Mr. Lex, Kiprich, Madd Anju, Egg Nog and Frassman deliver fine efforts. Packed with the kind of tracks that will keep your dancing feet moving till the very end, this compilation set is a guaranteed dancefloor filler. Completely new for a Greensleeves album release is the inclusion of a Megamix track, providing an impression of almost 8 minutes pure bashment excitement.
