OLD CAPITAL PRESENTS NEW RIDDIM
Last year we wrote a small piece about the first release of Old Capital in which we stated that the label made a promising impact with their first riddim "Rasta Pickney". Now the french based label is about to unleash their newest creation, called "Togetherness," and it is even better than we had hoped for. "Togetherness" is a thick 'n bassheavy roots riddim with a pumping sound that is beyond uplifting due to the incredible production skills by Judi K. The sound is clear and heavy, but still maintains to keep a certain "genuine" feel to it.
Then there is the excellent choice of artists riding the riddim: Fantan Mojah, Perfect & Lutan Fyah are presenting some valuable songs and will provide the riddim its claim to fame in the dancehall. Equally strong songs are provided by lesser known artists like: Don Pako, Keefaz and Malijah, making this set of 7"s yet again essential.
