OVERTIME RIDDIM HITS WITH LIQUID GROOVE Featured

      It’s the biggest problem that one faces in the music business after a big success. What do you do for an encore?   Justus Arison and Patrick ‘Roach’ Samuels of JustJA Productions attacks that problem with great panache with their follow-up project, Overtime, after the wonderful success of 2011’s breakout hit-spawning ‘Overproof’ riddim. As riddims go, Overtime is similar to Overproof in terms of the understated feel of the riddim with its cool keyboard synths, liquid groove and bubbling bassline. 
 
Dancehall superstar Beenie Man gets things going with the rhyme-happy ‘Clean Heart’ where he declares that ‘bad mind fi dead out before the next generation’, providing one of the standout songs on the riddim. 
 
Billboard chart-rider Gyptian delivers the signature song on the riddim, ‘Overtime’, where he uses witty workplace metaphors to approach a girl in his wonderful singjay dancehall style. The ever-reliable Mavado shines with his ode to ‘Caribbean Girls’, his song fitting perfectly on the grooving bassline of the riddim.
 
Former Portmore Empire frontman Blak Ryno demonstrates excellent grasp of dancehall wordplay with ‘Summer Wine’ while the irrepressible Christopher Martin continues his brilliant recent form with the ice-cream smooth ‘Na Na Na’. Dancehall firebrand Elephant Man teams up with the ultra-talented Khago for ‘Slap Weh’, a feel good romp of a song that is destined for the dancehalls of Kingston. 
 
Veteran Spragga Benz surges through with the commanding ‘She Love Me’, and you can hear the joy and vigour in his voice, as Benz shows that even after 15 years in the music, he has the ability to reinvent himself and flow bar to bar with the best artistes in dancehall today. 
 
Rookie artiste Byrd Villain shows his musical chops with the tongue-twisting ‘Pushy Good’ while Wasp is incredible as he declares that he is “Hot Like Fiya’. JA Productions artitste Navino is a revelation on Party We Say, a single that drives home of the point that this young man is the future of dancehall-reggae music with his tight rhymes and melodic voice. 
 
Spice borrows the rapper-actor Will Smith’s melody of the title sequence of the sitcom ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ for ‘The Holiday’ to recreate the perfect Summer vibe while Melloquence inspires the downtrodden and disenfranchised with ‘Go For Mine’. New artiste Ajrenaline is surprisingly good on ‘One Room’, the beat providing minor assistance to the lyrical flow of one of the talented new generation of artistes.
