Don't usually do this but I'll make an exception for this tune. The way I've listened to this more than 8 times in the hour. Big tune! Recently I've been on a conscious medz when it comes to Dancehall/Bashment. I'm gonna do a top 10 'cos people ask me a lot, my medz will be reflected in that.
Came across this tune today by my newly-crowned favourite camp Head Concussion's protege Chan Dizzy.
Russian and Brixton from Head Concussion are doing a lot right now. Their riddims aren't the most traditional dancehall sounding, many would say they lean a lot towards Hip Hop which is true in a sense, but do they sound like beats you hear rappers on? I prefer to say there are elements of Hip hop but it's a variation of dancehall and adds to the versatility of the genre.
Either way the riddims are hard and they still have a bass line. Even though I'm not hot on the name, Chan Dizzy has a big tune on his hands!!! Heartfelt, uplifting ghetto-youth bars seems to be the new trend in dancehall, especially on singles. He's got a good voice as well. Song kinda reminds me of when Konshens first buss with Winner. Hope this gets shown love.
Love how the music moves in cycles; from gunplay in '07 to money in 08 now inspirational hold your head up tunes for 09 and beyond. Will try to do a blog on it one day.
