Riddims and Joy Denalane

September 26, 2007

Ok, so the globalization of music continues.

I just stumbled upon a singer who’s been around for a while in Europe: R&B singer Joy Denalane from Berlin, Germany. It looks as though a German production team/label by the name of Rootdown Records remixed and reggaefied her 2006 R & B single “Let Go” and turned it into a proper riddim track for some of the top Jamaican roots artists: It features tracks from the most underrated singjays, Jah Mason, plus awesome newcomer Ginjah, along with Junior Kelly, Anthony B and others.
I mentioned before that a ton of great new throwback reggae riddims seem to be coming not from Jamaica, but from Europe.

Check out Joy’s newest video featuring Lupe Fiasco, which features a (replica I guess?) of Philly’s LOVE statue:

You can download a mix of the riddim from Rootdown Record’s website:

MP3: Let Go riddim megamix

All of the individual tracks from the riddim are available at audimaxxx.com
