Smoke Notes

This meeting of two worlds sees Jamaica's finest Dancehall producers and emcees in collaboration with the Def Jam records roster, including DMX, Scarface & Method Man. Donovan Vendetta Bennett provides the first beat, a minimal jiggy number with rhymes from Dipset, Vybz Cartel and Wayne Marshall. Tony "CD" Kelly provides several excellent instrumentals including "Anything Goes" featuring Capone-N-Noreaga and the sweet voiced Wayne Wonder, "Top Shottta" with DMX and Dancehall's two biggest stars, Sean Paul & Mr Vegas, while elsewhere he works with Scarface and Ghostface Killah on "Murda" and "Girls Callin" respectively. The diversity is a strong point, and 'Def Jamaica' manages to showcase a wide range of the current stars of the Dancehall genre with everyone from Lady Saw to Buju Banton represented. The album's finest moment is surely the meeting of gruff toned hip hoppers Method Man and Redman and young Damien Marley, a tight rhythm punctuated by organ purpose built to destroy dance floors. In fact 'Def Jamaica' is traditional enough to appeal to staunch supporters of both scenes, managing to satisfy fans of both genres and comes with a solid recommendation - this is the underground sound of summer, and after the commercial success of Sean Paul and Wayne Wonder, 'Def Jamaica' is about to blow up. Hot hot hot.
