Catchy roots from Hungary’s Riddim Colony.

Sampler

Hungary’s premier reggae band Riddim Colony recently dropped their fourth album Lion’s Way, a set following Rise & Shine released two years ago. This five piece outfit started in 2005 and has since toured Europe several times sharing stages with the likes of Anthony B, Max Romeo, Sizzla and Michael Rose.

Riddim Colony - Lion's WayBefore recording Lion’s Way lead vocalist Gregory G. Ras spent some time in Jamaica meeting artists and making connections. And on this twelve track set they are joined by two Jamaican singers – Micah Shemaiah and Derajah. On board is also UK two of UK’s hardest deejays – Dark Angel and Blackout JA.

Lion’s Way is contemporary European one drop adding a few dancehall efforts, of which one – Badmind – is a clever version of the catchy Ali Baba riddim, made immortal by John Holt in the early 70s.

This album is my first encounter with Riddim Colony and Lion’s Way is intriguing enough to have me checking out their back catalogue. I do however hope that their previous sets includes a proper brass section rather than using synthesized horns.
