Award winning DJ Mic Smith (Redbull Club DJ Of The Year) linked up with Yellow Moon Records president DJ Sunshine to release the Shutdown Riddim. DJ Sunshine is a hit maker from Jamaica who already worked with big shots like Vybz Kartel and Movado. This riddim is supposed to be the first Jamaican produced riddim which features an All-African, in this case even a All-Ghanian, line up.
The riddim features the hottest artist out the current Ghanian Dance Hall scene such as AK Songstress, Stonebwoy and MzVee and in my ears they all did a great job. Only flaw on this release is the fact that the instrumental has already been used by Yellow Moon Records for the Wul Dem riddim which came out last year. The good thing about: you really can tell that the Ghanian line up has not to hide at all!
Unfortunately the riddim has not officialy been released on iTunes yet but we will keep you posted as soon as there is a release date. Check out the art work and the track list below including our favorite three songs ready to listen.
