about

The Montreal based label Riddim Wise is proud to present The Downtown Riddim. This new album features some of the biggest names in Jamaican reggae such as Sizzla Kalonji, Lutan Fyah, Turbulence, I Shenko, Perfect and Mikey General but also some of the best artists from Canada like Mikey Dangerous, Dan Fiyah Beats, Marky Lyrical, Face T and King Shadrock. Africa is represented as well with the presence of Senegalese rapper Awadi featuring Congolese singer Tibass Kazemtik, and finally from the French Amazon Surinamese singer Prince Koloni.

The partners from Riddim Wise have been making their name by hosting a radio show for over twelve years as well as performing live « Sound Systems » and working as a recording and production label. Their mission was to unify artists from all over the world on one common « Riddim ».

Diversity and quality are definitely present, as veterans and big stars share the spotlight with young and upcoming artists. Lyrically the songs range from talking about love to fighting freedom, from passion to resilience, bringing a very rich and conscious aspect to this album. Jamaican Patois, English, French, Sranang Tong (Guyana) and Lingala (Congo) make this a unique and eclectic project.

The name of the « Riddim » pays tribute to the mythical neighbourhood of downtown Kingston, pictured on the album cover. This is a wonderful production created in the purest reggae tradition.
