As some of you already know, Million Stylez has a new song out. The tune is called "X Amount A Gyal" and has been recorded over the fantastic riddim Tsunami Punnany produced by Mastah-L. A pure dancehallsweeper with nice flow from Million and a seriously wicked riddim makes this a Combat-favourite right now.
Richie Riott, another Combat-favourite who we often play in Tuff Tuesdays keeps on popping out new stuff. This time he blesses the dancefloors with a song called "I Know" produced by J-Trix. A real uptempo partystarter for sure. Seems like Richie has found his unique style on the mic - the vocals are really good and the riddim is specially made only for this song. Nice work!

When it comes to new riddims I give you my two favourites right now. The first one is Battlefield although there are two riddims to get with that same name the one to look out for is definetley the Cordell "Scatta" Burrell-produced one. Strong cuts includes Sizzla's "Rapid" and "All About Dem" from Spragga Benz. A really nice danceriddim this. One of my favourites so far in 2007.
The second one comes from Lenky, who has mashed up the dancehall with Diwali, Masterpiece, Bubble Up and other innovative and much appreciated riddims. He has now returned with Synthetic. The riddim has an uptempo-feeling but is as a matter of fact not very fast. It has also got a really nice "westsideNWA&Dr.Dre-ish" synthsound that I absolutely love. Sometimes the artist does the tune, no matter what riddim and sometimes the opposite. The thing with Lenky though is that all tunes kind of works in perfect harmony with his riddims. As in most of Lenky's productions he tailors some tunes to be perfectly fitted to the artist songs. The songs standing out in my opinion are Elephant Man's highgrade-oozing "So High", Vybz Kartel's "Red Eye" and "Hot Gal Holiday" from Red Rat, who is back in effect! No selector should miss this one!
