They are Emergency Love by Everton Blender, Revelation Time by Fitta Warri, Shed No Tears by Jah Mason, Long Time by Ras Mac Bean, The Truth by Natty King, Africa by Anthony Cruz, Give Me Weed by Conrad Crystal and Sunshine from Uton Green.

Fans of Marlene Johnson will be familiar with Conquerer from the Anthony Cruz cut, one of the strongest tracks on her debut album My Type O Smoove.
