Hi, I have some credit on an MP3 shop which has a bunch of these compilations for ridiculously cheap and was wondering if anyone would recommend any of them.

Not particularly excited about buying whole riddim albums, but keen to hear of any big tunes or just particularly good riddims...

these i can vouch for 100%:

new roots/culture/reggae:

Hard Times - one of my favorite new roots riddims, every cut is good

Confessions - not sure if this is Riddim Driven or Greensleeves? but it's SO SO SO FUCKING good... you will listen to this and Hard Times all the way through and want more over and over and over... at least i do.

Doctor's Darling


dancehall:

Tai Chi
Wanted
Bionic Ras
Mexican

Well, here's what I've got to choose from...
Adrenaline
Applause
Blindfold
Bondage
Bubble Up
Career
Caribbean Style
Check It Back
Chrome
Dem Time Deh
Dreamweaver
Flava
Grindin'
Hot Gyal
I Swear
Jam Down
Mad Instruments
Mr Brown Meets No. 1
Rah Rah
Rice & Peas
Sexy Lady Explosion
Sleepy Dog
Sleng Teng Extravaganza (hmm)
Speed & Full Moon (on one album)
Stepz
Stop The Fighting
Wipe Out (hahaha... was hilarious hearing this played out, but have a feeling I'd go mad listening to even the best vocalists on this one...)

The way these things have been uploaded means I can't even see who's on them, but I guess google would help in that regard... and of course I could just listen through, but if anyone does have any tips it might safe a lot of faffing about.

Jam Down


The Sleng Teng thing sounds good but Jam Down was my favourite riddim released last year
