Freedom Horns Riddim Review

Freedom Horns Riddim – Review

Seani B, Don Chandler and various artists: Freedom Horns Riddim review – Steve Topple For Pauzeradio. The ‘old ones are the best’, allegedly. Not always the case, maybe – and five, short years is hardly ancient. But one of the most recognisable riddims of the 2010’s has just got a fresh outing. And the result is a delicious expansion on a classic. Freedom Horns Riddim, released by Bruk Out, is an exquisite piece of work by Seani B and Don. Musically intricate, it harks back to the golden age of Reggae while simultaneously rooting itself firmly in the 21st century.

World A Reggae Riddim – Review

Various artists: World A Reggae riddim review – Steve Topple For Pauzeradio.com (Songs On This Riddim Are Available In The Pauzeradio Vinyl Shop) If ever the title of a track summed up not only its content, but also the musical genre, it was the World A Reggae Riddim. Because you can chart the history of the music, and its true meaning, across all the artists’ interpretations. It’s a bold move for World A Reggae, one of the leading websites for the genre, to release its own riddim. But given the roll-call of artists who have put their talents to it,

Prince Allah Stand Firm Review

Prince Allah – Stand Firm – Review

Prince Allah: Stand Firm review – Steve Topple for Pauzeradio. To say Prince Allah is a veteran of the Roots movement is probably an understatement. But this legendary artist has lost none of his spark, as his most recent project demonstrates. Stand Firm, released by Sunvibes Music, may be small. But to coin a cliché it is perfectly formed. And moreover, its four tracks accompanied by four Dub versions encapsulate Prince Allah perfectly. The album opens with Some A Dem. It’s pure, classic Roots. The musical arrangement uses an extremely effective one tone chord drop-down across each bar. This gives

Jah Hammed Champion Sound Review

Jah Hammed – Champion Sound – Review

Jah Hammed Champion Sound Review. The brand new release of Jah Hammed Champion Sound, released on the 1st September 2019 features a variety of songs and a couple of really tight collaborations, with each song having the Total Satisfaction Records defined touch on production. Leading the charge on ‘Champion Sound’, the title track starts out the album perfectly, a smooth and sweet riddim that could almost pass with some nice lovers rock lyrics. When Jah Hammed starts singing, you soon realise that it’s a sound system pleaser. Moving onto the second track, ‘Finding My Way’. Jah Hammed talks about finding

Ras Teo Meets Lone Ark – Ten Thousand Lions – Review

Ras Teo Meets Lone Ark – Ten Thousand Lions – Review I’ve been waiting all summer! With its final days swathed in glorious sunshine here in the UK, this is the sound I’ve been waiting for. Sincere thanks go out to Ras Teo Hartoonian. While many will be aware of this artiste via tracks such as Entah, Jah Jah Come and the excellent, Togetherness, this was THE album to restore and compound my faith in the protracted health and future of real Roots Reggae music. And make no mistake; there still exists a massive chasm of divide between accepted Reggae

Eva Lazarus More Fyah 12 vinyl LP

Eva Lazarus – More Fyah – Review

Eva Lazarus More Fyah Review Being asked to review any album is a minefield waiting to be detonated. Some will agree, some won’t, while some will wait to dissect your spleen with rusty utensils, armed with full membership to the Tone Deaf Society of their choice. It’s nice to get the occasional present. On reading the YouTube reviews of this album, I decided to listen a fourth and fifth time, just to see what I had been missing; just to see if there was more to add to my original thoughts and reactions. On the basis that PauzeRadio is a

YT No Wata Down Ting 12 vinyl lp

YT – No Wata Down Ting – Review

YT No Wata Down Ting Review. From its opening track, ‘God Bless Pickney’, which reminds of reggae classic, ‘I’m Gonna Send Him To Outta Space’, to its closing ‘At Dem’, this superbly constructed album screams a defiant message of ‘VARIETY’ at those seeking out a truly eclectic sound. This isn’t one of those patched together albums with only two, three, or even four sounds of note, but a serious competitor for one of the best put out in the reggae ether for a long, long age. And ‘No Wata Down Ting’, with its ”We don’t want no ice cream sound,

Menny More On Air Live Album Review

Menny More – On Air Live – Review

Menny More On Air Live Review Menny More has been a regular feature in the Unique Reggae Mix radio show on Pauzeradio.com for many years and has a unique style. His vocals are consistent and unlike any other artist on the circuit. This latest album from Menny More called “On Air Live” does not disappoint. Starting out with “Last Laugh” sitting on a classic, forward driving riddim track, this song is an ideal taster of the overall feel of the album. Being uptempo but holding tight with a roots feel, pushing across the message of the title of the song

Lion Pride Riddim Review Over the past year I have noticed that many I and Pauzeradio.com collaborate with have stepped up their work rate and this is the exact description needed for Upsetta Records and all involved in their projects. With the last release from them being the Reggae Robin riddim, which was smothered in big tunes, I had high hopes for this latest release the Lion Pride riddim. The line up to the riddim at first glance had me thinking right away “wow” what a collection of greats all on one riddim and I had a feeling that I

Subajah – Architect – Review

Subajah Architect Review. When it comes to authentic roots reggae Subajah is certainly defining himself in that category, and this latest album release does more than prove that to be true. A solid mix of deep, meaningful, message lyrics, performed excellently and accompanied with incredible musical instruments, all produced to the highest of quality. It’s easy to hear that real instruments are used to create this masterpiece that is Architect. The structure and composition help to create a vibration that I feel, is what roots reggae is all about, upliftment with truth, rights, faith and real life experiences. The album
