The streets are talking about DJ Frass' latest riddim project, the menacing Wild West riddim. Disc jockeys have the riddim in heavy rotation already and by all indications, DJ Frass Records has yet another hit project on its hands for the hectic last quarter.

Innovata is a powerful deejay who is staking his place in the Dancehall Game with his lip-smacking verbal gymnastics and made up words on 'Mi No Fraida People'. What exactly is a fubble-dubble war? Next time, when you see him, be sure to ask him. He generates a lot of menace on this track, and he delivers a decent singalong hook that the teenyboppers will love. 

One of the standout songs on the riddim is the high-riding Alkaline with 'Object Bingo' that seems to be some sort of code for a successful assassination. He describes a hit carried out by a man carrying a gun in a box food with brilliant clarity and mad metaphors. Alkaline's hook is definite winner. 

While others concentrate on war, Mavado focusses on money with 'Money Ah Di Right Ting'. Best line : dem think ghetto youth no have ambition/every room inna mi house air-condition. Mavado has an uncanny knack for delivering melodies and hooks that can capture the imagination of the dancehall public. He is one of those rare dancehall figures whose voice gains force and resonance as he grows older. 

Gullyside artiste 3 Star impresses with 'Yu Zimi' unleashes an armada of gut-punching with this dancehall gem. He has an innovative way of talking about guns as brags that he has a "browning weh ugly like Jimmy/sexy K look better inna mini'. 

One of the revelations on the Wild West riddim is a song called 'No Try' by Spookie. This artiste has a crystal clear voice that rings like a bell on this song. He has a brilliant style of singjaying that compliments the riddim, and this artiste is one to watch for the future.  

DJ Frass is one of the most consistent producers in the game today and he has found another winner with the Wild West riddim which will soon be available on iTunes on October 9, 2015.
