Sweet Corn Riddim by Various Artists
Released: Mar 2011
Label: Pure Music Productions
While dancehall has traditionally been more rhythmic than melodic, the genre has gradually transitioned away from its trademark hardcore sound. With sweeping synths, live bass and driving drums, the Sweet Corn Riddim is a great example of this new era in dancehall. Crooner Wayne Wonder thrives in the format with "Dem a Worry," while up-and-comer Teflon offers a more aggressive delivery with "Pretender." The highlight of this selection, though, comes from Gappy Ranks: "Knowledge" is one of his best tracks of 2011, a breakout year for the U.K. artist.
