Hailing from Kingston, Jamaica, Tony "CD" Kelly -- brother of that other successful and respected producer, Dave Kelly -- is now a veteran when it comes to dancehall and reggae productions. He entered the music business in the 1980s as an assistant engineer at the Tuff Gong Studios, but it wasn't until the 1990s that he became instrumental in creating hit songs for popular artists like Sean Paul, Shaggy, Wayne Wonder, Super Cat, and Beenie Man to name only five. All of his riddims made a serious impact and included guaranteed dancefloor fillers such as "Bookshelf", "Underwater", "Kiki", "Buy Out", and "Katana".

The top hit maker doesn't put out new riddims as often as he used to in the 1990s, but when he does it's most definitely a good one. This also goes for his latest effort, the "Winners" riddim, which has been voiced by established artists like Shaggy, Wayne Wonder, and Mr. Vegas, alongside wannabe stars such as Liquid, Trevor Off-Key, and Malica. Tony "CD" Kelly has always produced riddims that also could appeal to a broader audience and the "Winners" is no exception. It's a very danceable and easily accessible dancehall backdrop with a somewhat 'poppy' feel, which will surely fire up every dance. All of the artists included here have done a good job, so no weak tune around. Our personal favourites are Delly Ranx's "I'm A Winner", Esco's "Big Up", Mr. Vegas' "Not A Day", Spice's "I Wanna Know", and Wayne Wonder's "Over All".

The "Winners" riddim is another winner for Tony "CD" Kelly, who produced more crossover hits than any other producer in the history of the dancehall genre.
