Xterminator Productions comes up with a compilation CD called "Xterminator Singles Series Vol. 1" (hopefully indeed a new series) that tracks recent JA pre-release singles of the label. The album opens with Luciano's "Gunzalis" followed by its heavy echo-laden awesome version, thus setting the pace of what happens to be top-quality reggae music produced by Phillip "Fattis" Burrell. Beres Hammond's empowering lovers cut starts a "riddim shower", interrupted by Louie Culture's solid "How long" and its version. Before the album ends with two nice instrumental tracks we get one more track from the aforementioned "riddim shower", an excellent roots tune delivered by the young and talented Ras Shiloh.
