Oh my god search out Vybz's "Tek Buddy Gal Part 2" and "Hype" (the latter on the Tundra riddim; dunno what the former is) - both are utterly insano tribal mania! In his Village Voice article/ILM-attack Sasha
seemed to imply that dancehall's recent history has amounted to little more than a Timbaland rip-off. This is truer and less contentious than it might at first seem, but as is the way of such things the rip-offs have in certain areas now far-exceeded the efforts of the original innovator (whether Timbaland has fallen off is irrelevant to this*). Like the best of snaky-but-organic '01 era 2-step (eg. "Down Down Biznizz") this stuff totally dissolves all boundaries between natural rhythmic fluency and tight syncopation in a swirl of spiralling spiderweb grooves.
* After hearing Kiley Dean's "Keep It Moving" I'm prepared to agree that Timbaland hasn't necessarily fallen off - it's just that the *wrong* stuff is getting the big-ups ("Comin' Round" and "Keep It Moving" deserve all the baffling praise which half-hearted efforts like "Pass That Dutch" and "Dirt Off Your Shoulder" seem to get as a matter of course).
More posts soon hopefully - need more time in front of a computer to get my thoughts down!
