Star struck, a hard-hitting rhythm

Busy Signal


Beenie Man

With the new year now two months old, dancehall fans will have to wait no longer for a premier compilation, as the Star Struck Record Label gears up to release their highly anticipated Star Struck rhythm to the masses.

The hard-hitting, dance-provoking rhythm, which was produced by Esco Da Shocker, features some of Jamaica's most formidable lyricists coupled with a handful of new and familiar artistes.

Still celebrating the success of his platinum-selling single Bumaye, dancehall deejay Busy Signal headlines the line-up with his cleverly composed track Wet Spliff. The song throws jabs at several contradicting practices in local culture such as the sharing of a smoke between two men.

'The Doctor' Beenie Man also delivers musical magic with his One More Wine song.

Bawse Dawg, the dancehall deejay who is known for his wordplay and vocal aggression holds nothing back on his record AP which promotes living within one's means and not doing anything compromising for benefits. He also doubles up on the project as a collaborator with I Candy for Top A The Line.

As if wearing the producer's cap were not enough, Esco Da Shocker also has his own single, titled Caa Cross Me. Esco confidently rejoices about his love for the female anatomy while denouncing any border- crossing behaviour.

Subkonshus deejay Darrio contributes an inspirational song, Wish Dem Cud Be Me, while Alliance Next Generation deejay Iyara holds firm in the face of poverty with Man A Hold It.

Completing the line-up of artistes featured on the rhythm is the lone female and Star Struck first lady Shanhill, who unleashes her vocal ranger on a cover of Rihanna's chart-topping single, Stay. Shanhill, who last year signed to Star Struck Records, is definitely one to watch for 2014.
