Diseases Riddim Hits Mix | Reggae Lover Episode 66

Diseases Riddim Mix | Reggae Lover by Highlanda Sound | Episode 66

The Diseases riddim, which is sometimes referred to or known as the Golden Hen riddim is featured here.

I call it the Worries in the Dance Riddim, but the original version of the instrumental was used for the song entitled “Mad Mad Mad” produced in the 1960s by Coxsone Dodd for his Studio One label featuring Alton Ellis on the main vocals. Therefore the original name of this riddim is Mad Mad Mad.

This mix starts with Mad Mad Mad by Alton Ellis and goes all the way to Sizzla in the end. Thank you for listening to the #ReggaeLoverPodcast

The Dominance of King Jammy and Biltmore Era Riddims

4
Reggae Lover Podcast 39The episode commences with the Sly and Robbie produced version of the Randy Newman song,

Reggae Lover Podcast 39B

The episode commences with the Sly and Robbie produced version of the Randy Newman song, “Baltimore” from 1979 sung by The Tamlins. Courtney Melody and Dennis Brown follow with big tunes on the Baltimore Riddim before the hit from mighty King Jammys catalog, Dennis Brown’s “The Exit.”

Wayne Fire’s “Sexy Body” (1991) and “Come Down” by Super Cat from 1988 on the Wild Apache label launch the mix into the late 1980s. Listen for a Kenneth Hoo Kim produced version of the Hypocrite riddim released in 1984, and then almost every song after that point involves producers Bobby Digital, Steely and Clevie, and/or King Jammys.

The highlight is the Duck aka Duck Dance riddim from 1988. This was a time when Jammy’s label usually had 10 out of the top 20 songs on Jamaica’s charts and Admiral Bailey was the dominant artist in dancehall and on stage shows.

Super Stars of Reggae (1987-1989)

8

Thanks for joining me on this Reggae Lover journey.  This is the 5th episode of the podcast in and I’m truly thankful for the feedback coming. It has been very encouraging.  Each episode has a brief intro and outro, but I do not talk over the music, nor do I place sound effects over the mixes.  You can actually hear all the songs, the mixing and blending clearly as they are recorded live. Within this episode I feature the Super Star Riddim from 1989, the I Need You Riddim from 1987, a nice Delroy Wilson off the More Ideas Riddim (1988), the Enquirer Riddim from 1988 with Sanchez covering Bobby Brown‘s “My Prerogative,” and finally ending off with Singing Melody and Shabba Ranks on the Gal Yu Look Good riddim.

The Biggest Lovers Rock Anthems of the 90s

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

Click to play/download 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.

Reggae Vault Classics 20: Sanchez, Volcano hits and more 80’s

2

This is the latest episode of the syndicated Reggae Vault Classics podcast produced by Kahlil Wonda of Highlanda Sound for the week of June 22, 2009 featuring classic reggae music in a DJ mixed format with no talking.

Starting off this mix we feature 20 songs by lover’s rock giant Sanchez, who is know for having one of the sweetest voices to have come out of Jamaica. Then we take you down memory lane to Volcano studios and the big, bad ‘Worries In The Dance’ performed by Frankie Paul and the ‘Diseases’ riddim featuring some of the most important records in the story of Jamaican music with Yellowman and the group Michigan and Smiley among others. The finale of episode 20 is Lt. Stitchie’s 1980s dancehall mega-hit “Wear Your Size.” Ting called nostalgia!
