Purple Skunk Records is out to prove that they can create one-drop anthems as well. Reminiscent of Don Corleon's signature sound -- uplifting and lighthearted -- Monte Carlo Riddim has the feel of classic lovers' rock. Featuring an impressive lineup of artists, this is one of the most high-profile riddim releases of 2011. Highlights include Da Professor's "Wake Me Up," CeCile's "Missing You" and dancehall superstar I Octane's versatility on "Sinking Sand." Tarrus Riley also flourishes with "Step by Step," but the best selection is Jah Cure's environmentally conscious "Mother Earth."
