Minx riddim spawns dancehall hits

MINX RIDDIM BLOWS UP IN JAMAICA   New York-based producer Dorian Besson and well-known producer Michael 'Yahbell' Bell have teamed up for the Minx riddim on the Brukkout Production label.    Craigy T, former front man for the group T.O.K , leads out the riddim with 'Baad a Yaad', where he informs the dancehall girls that they have to perform in the boudoir as well as in dancehall. Controversial dancehall deejay Chin Chin teams up with CR for 'Cock Up and Wine' where she boasts about her prowess in the bedroom.    Newcomers like Dolli and Kevanii have good chemistry on  'Mek Mi Cum'. Fambo and Beenie Man team up for 'Drunken Party', arguably the best song on the project, as they recreate that party atmosphere that has made Kingston one of the party capitals of the world. Macka Diamond shows that she is one of the best recording artistes - male or female - with the brilliantly delivered, 'Shake'. She delivers hard-hitting lyrics and the girls will love the line 'go up, shake it like a hydraulic shock' .   Leftside is brilliant with 'Ms Goody Goody' while newcomer 77 Flash brings the dancehall swagger with 'Dancehall Fiesta' with a talking-deejay. Gappy Ranks rounds out the project with 'W.A.G' which gives the riddim an international feel with a brilliant singalong chorus that will rock dancehalls from Africa to Europe.    Brukkout Production has found another winner with the Minx riddim.
