Straight from the Tuff Gong vault:
Dancehall Originators, a new compilation of original dancehall mixes featuring “Hot This Year”, one of the riddims that started it all.
Dancehall Originators is the first album in the “Lets Go Back…Way Back” series which showcases the foundation artists and riddims that made dancehall reggae what it is today, and puts them in one fantastic collectors edition package. A must-have for old and new dancehall reggae fans alike presented by Ziggy Marley.
Dancehall Originators voices Philip Smart’s 1992 “HOT THIS YEAR” riddim, which provided the foundation for Frankie Paul’s “DAY-O,”Shaggy’s “MAMPIE,” Red Foxx and Screechy Dan’s “POSE OFF,” and the hugely successful “HOT THIS YEAR” by the late DJ Dirtsman (PATRICK THOMPSON).
