Happy Child Riddim Review

Happy Child Riddim – Review

Various Artists: Happy Child Riddim Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. Having been around 15 years in the making, a record label has finally released a sweeping riddim – featuring some truly legendary artists. Has it been worth the wait? Absolutely. Happy Child Riddim, released via Anotha One Productions, saw the label’s founder Milan Ivkovic compose the initial riddim way back in 2005. The first artist recorded their interpretation in 2006. Fast-forward to September 2020, and the final artist added their cut. It’s quite a journey for a riddim to have. But interestingly, the length of time has worked in

Ray Isaacs ft R Embassida Raggamuffin Review

Ray Isaacs ft R Embassida – Raggamuffin – Review

Ray Isaacs featuring R.Embassida: Raggamuffin Single Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. The nephew of the legendary Gregory Isaacs has not had a bad year, all things considered – from a timely and well-executed cover of a track by his uncle, to a journey into AfroDancehall territory. Now, Ray Isaacs is back to finish 2020 with a Roots-Dub bang. Raggamuffin, released via Anotha One Productions, sees Ray Isaacs team up with R.Embassida. The composition from House of Riddim has created a brooding, driving affair that draws on elements from two genres to create a sound that is unsettling yet compelling.

I David Wadadda Dub Review

I David – Wadadda Dub – Review

I David: Wadadda Dub Single Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. What better way to finish off 2020 with a gorgeous piece of instrumental Roots, from one of the UK’s leading producers? An easy request to fulfil, when I David is involved. Wadadda Dub, released via Totally Dubwise Recordings, is glorious. Solely performed, produced and mixed by UK musical stalwart I David, and with mastering from Sappo, the limited press 7” vinyl offers a thoughtful, reflective and rich experience to close the year with. It’s an expertly executed piece of music. Side A’s main version is the Melodica Dub, which

X Ova Riddim Review

X Ova Riddim – Review

Three Lake Music x Anotha One Productions: X Ova Riddim Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. It’s been a sterling year for conscious Dancehall. It’s also been a sterling year for smaller, independent record labels. Combine those two thoughts and you have the perfect eulogy for an end of 2020 riddim. X Ova Riddim, released via Three Lake Music and Anotha One Productions, sees the outfits combine their skills across four tracks. The backstory to the riddim is fascinating: it was originally conceived as a Reggae composition by Milan Ivkovic of Anotha One. Then, the featured artists recorded their interpretations.

Treesha Same Ol Song Review

Treesha – Same Ol’ Song – Review

Treesha: Same ol’ Song Single Review by Mr Topple for Pauzeradio.com. If you want a guarantee of always on-point vocals coupled with eloquent lyrics and finished off with some gorgeous and intricate music, then Treesha is always a safe bet; even more so when she teams up with one of Europe’s hottest producers. Same ol’ Song, released via Groove Attack, sees Treesha join forces with DJ Densen. It’s a testament to both that the end result is sheer class and quality: effortlessly fusing various genres to create a sound that’s instantly memorable. It opens with an almost surreal introduction: Densen
