Only finalists on 149 Records' compilation.


149 Records #1French label and production house 149 Records deserves wide attention. Their riddims Datta, Speaker and Brighter Day have all left me stunned.

The label’s first compilation titled '#1' compiles 20, of which twelve are previously unreleased, modern roots scorchers from both well-known and upcoming singers and deejays. The melodic one drop riddims are skillfully executed by the Babyclone Band.

Apart from the three riddims mentioned above five others are also included. All of the same high quality.

It’s rare to find a compilation where almost every track is a winner, but this is actually the case with this album.

Trinibagoan singer and deejay Queen Omega impresses as usual. Same goes for Ras Mac Bean, Juleen, Mark Wonder and Carl Meeks with his particularly delicious Jah is Alive on the Speaker riddim.

The only disappointment is French singer Ti Rat with his Never Let Us Down. Not a bad tune at all, but it should have been sung in his native language instead of English.

'#1' is a fitting title on this compilation, and I hope more people discover this small French label making big music.
