“Calling All Jah Children”
A turbulent wind blows, introducing this pure and totaly conscious dancehall session, even when the mixtape takes a flip into taking Dr. Dre’s or BlackStar’s classic beats later on in the juggle. As Turbulence blesses the “Well Powerful Intro” to start this off, we’re on to our first “Fortune Teller” riddim-a thick, mystical Nyabhingi production from Digital Ancient. As Lutan Fyah unleashes “No More War pt. 1″ the blending of further tunes will eventually pass the mic to Yami Bolo, Turbulence, Norris Man & Jah Mason, then back to continue Lutan Fyah’s “No More War pt. 2.” In fact, this is the technique throughout for each featured riddim in this compilation. A creative twist to throwing back different verses from the same artist, intermingling varying parts of the same song. Whether it’s over the serious mind-game feel of the “Alarm Clock” riddim, the ulitimate “Liberation” riddim, or a very promising rich-textured “The Shining” riddim with 60 tunes deep even though the quality may not be as great as it should-this is Rasta business to the fullest!!!
