VARIOUS ARTISTS - KALASHNIKOV RECORDS
Jamaican based Kalashnikov Records, part of 47 Entertainment, recently put out some very interesting material on vinyl. In this review, we will talk about two of their riddims: NEXT LEVEL and HIDE AND SEEK. 

More Info, Soundclips etc

VARIOUS - NEXT LEVEL RIDDIM

Take the Sleng-Teng riddim. When Jammy's introduced it in the mid 1980's, a complete new genre was born as the computer permantly entered the Recording Studio's inna Yard.

Jamaican based Kalashnikov Records took Sleng-Teng's vibe, over 20 years later, and took it to the Next Level. A wide variety of contemporary Dancehall Artists, ranging from Sizzla to Elephant Man, from Anthony B to Nitty Kutchie, all voiced over it and released them on 7".

Where Sleng-Teng was a clear mixture of Rub a Dub and what was going to be Dancehall, the Next Level Riddim is a mixture of Dancehall and what is going to be...

Specially recommended is Sizzla's contribution. It's like the riddim is especially created for him and the message that Bun Bad Mind carries. In his well-known militant style, he chants down Babylon once more.

BIG POP - BABYLON HIDE AND SEEK 
(HIDE AND SEEK RIDDIM)

Contemporary Jamaican Reggae can be a minimalistic Dancehall or Roots riddim with lots of militancy, but a more melodic and mellow form of Roots Music, often with "real" instruments can be part of the menu just as much.

Take the Hide and Seek Riddim. Vocalist Big Pop rides it, chanting down Babylon for dividing the sufferers in order to keep them poor. The music is cool, just cool Roots.
