Episode 2 - Greatest Lovers Rock Combination Anthems of the 90s

Reggae Lover Episode 2 – Greatest Lovers Rock Combination Anthems of the 90s

1   Yami Bolo and Merciless – Curly Locs

After a short intro from yours truly, this mix starts off with a 1996 hit, Yami Bolo and Merciless singing Curly Locs – a lovely representation of the Junior Byles original song.

2   Andrew Bell and Shelene Thomas – Can You Give Me What I Want?

A big lover’s tune that can be found on one of the VP Records “Strictly the Best” compilation albums from the 90s.  Andrew Bell is still performing today and goes by the name Joseph Quote (aka “Bello”.

3   Sanchez and Beenie Man – Going Away

Quite simply one of the biggest songs on the prolific “Love Bump” riddim.  The King of the Dancehall alongside Sanchez, one of Jamaica’s most beloved voices.

4   Beres Hammond and Buju Banton – My Woman Now (Kahlil Wonda Extra Buju Mix)

In the original version of this song, Buju takes too long to come in.  Here, I have taken care of that problem.  Let me know if you like the sound of this “Extra Buju Mix.”

5   Cocoa Tea and Nadine Sutherland – Its Now or Never

Many have forgotten that these two artists ever sang together on a track. The combo of silky smooth male and female vocals make this tune simply SWEET.

6   Cocoa Tea and Cutty Ranks – Waiting In Vain

This is one song I just don’t mind hearing at any time.  Done nicely by Cocoa and Cutty, this Bob Marley classic is bound to live forever

7   Beres Hammond and Buju Banton – Who Say

Stop everything!  No keep going.  This is one of the top combinations in the business period.

8   Cocoa Tea and Buju Banton – Too Young

I had a tough time selecting only one song from this riddim, but the production on this track is just perfect.  Forward, Rewind and pull up dat!!!

9   Cocoa Tea and Cutty Ranks – I’m Not A King

Once again, hear back-to-back entries from the sweet voice of Cocoa Tea, this time accompanied by Cutty Ranks, who remained relevant in the 90s with solid lyrical delivery in this style.

10  Buju Banton and Wayne Wonder – Lonley

The “Swing Easy” is always a riddim that one can I listen or skank to for an extended period.  In this selection, I am pulling out some of the best cuts to feature, and Buju Banton along with Wayne Wonder have a winner with “Lonely.”

11  Chevelle Franklin and Lady G – The Right Slam (Kahlil Wonda Spicy Mix)

As a second song on in a row on the “Swing Easy” riddim, this song features two of the finest ladies of the era (80s – 90s dancehall).  I have reworked the song here to bring Lady G in at the proper time, thus maintaining the vibes of the mix.

12  Twiggi and Buju Banton – I Want Your Love (Kahlil Wonda Extra Buju Mix)

Buju is my artist, but here again the original press of this Penthouse Records Tempo riddim single makes you wait for a few verses to hear Gargamel come in.  I have made some adjustments to the arrangement so that the singer, Twiggi, goes back and forth with the DJ. This creates the ultimate in vibes.

13  Beres Hammond and Josey Wales – Free and Single (Sweetness)

Beres is the living legend – what more can I say? With father Josey in combination on the Conversation riddim, this remix to “Sweetness” is dancehall solid gold.

Review, Video & Pics: Cham Live in Atlanta

10

Early Warm

Mix Master David in the mix.

At around 1:45 am Mix Master David transitioned from uptempo 90′s dancehall juggling to the one drop beat of lovers rock and culture with Beres Hammond‘s hit ”I Feel Good” followed by Romain Virgo‘s “Can’t Sleep” on the same riddim getting good crowd response.  At 2:30 a.m. MMD took it back to basics, again to the liking of the audience, with “Greetings” by Half Pint.  Some classic Beres, Buju, and Wayne Wonder songs followed.  David then changed the vibes again with a big hip hop set consisting of songs by The Fugees and Black Rob to start out.

Early crowd at Cham concert

It had to be close to 3 o’clock when the 1st new music from artists of the day like Konshens and Mavado was featured in the dance.   During this part of the dance the selector English from Gyallis International took over the mixing duties as Mix Master continued as MC.  Then DJ Kash of WVEE Atlanta V-103FM came to the booth and challenged MMD to a tune for tune 45 clash which went on for a few rounds before the event’s format was resumed and the first performer was called to the stage.

Showtime

Atlanta dancehall star Dovey Magnum opened for Cham with a performance that earned cheers of support from Club Pisces.  She opened with a song dedicated to her father who passed away and after delivering 2 more singles, closed with an accapella delivery of “Kitty Tight” which was originally recorded on the Red Paint Riddim.

Cham’s appearance on stage attracted a front row of female admirers and earned energetic responses in general.  He remained present for about an hour and gave a very solid show.  Cham worked the entire stage from front to back and left to right, taking the time to perform most songs completely.  With a long catalog of hits he began with Ghetto Story, Man A Man, and Babylon Boy, before throwing it back to his pre-MTV/BET days and then advancing to the present day hits like ‘Tun Up,’ ‘Drop It‘  and ‘Wine.’  I have never seen Baby Cham disappoint.  This event definitely came together so kudos to the promoters Unitec Entertainment, as well as Mix Master David, English, and DJ Kash.  I am also looking forward to seeing Dovey Magnum do her thing again as she opens up for Beenie Man next month.
