Ah the worlds collide, what a wonderful thing that is. Cordel ‘Skatta’ Burrell knows a bit of that having made his name with the still sizzling ‘Coolie Dance’ rhythm back in 2004, his combo of yard bashment pressure and sub-continent strains broke out from JA to the upper echelons of the hip hop world, and beyond. His new’un ‘Bar Mitzvah’ is pretty self-explanatory – getting hefty on the hava nagilas and matching the sidelock with the dreadlock. It’s a ripper and I reckon that’s reflected in the vocal cuts, which are a cut above the current standard Kingston fare.

It might possibly be a bit too fruity to blow up like ‘Coolie Dance’, but then again that may well be the making of it. My full support is guaranteed, like last year’s The Caribbean Girl’ rhythm from Bambino & Juss Buss it’s a welcome reminder about how much fun dancehall can be, and how dull the regulation JA gear really is right now.
Out of the first round of artists there’s worthwhile cuts from Chino, Lukie D and Elephant Man as well as this scorcher from the Warlord…. Bounty Killer. Enjoy…..
