No Comments Uncategorized

The “Bookshelf Riddim” was released in 1998 produced by Tony ‘CD’ Kelly and features artist like;

Beenie man-Bookshelf

Mr Vegas- Jack it up

Devonte and Tanto Metro-Say wooee

Sean Paul-Deport Dem

Wayne Wonder- Watching You

Spragga Benz- Cute and little & Tight

Sasha-Dat Sexy Body 

There were many more artist on the production, but these where the top tracks which had the radio and clubs jumping.

Beenie Man had the title track “Bookshelf” which off course was a hit for both male and female fans alike. Other popular cuts include Sean Paul ” Deport Dem” which was very popular locally and internationally, the same can be said about the Wayne Wonder, Sasha, Mr Vegas, Devonte and Tanto Metro. Basically this was a hit production which had more than just one hit songs and it is still being played to date and having the same exciting effect.

The “Bookshelf Riddim” was a simple but catchy production with a wicked bass line. The flute sounding-like synth is just one of a kind. Even now when the riddim drops you automatically just to move, it’s infectious in the best way possible.  

It’s safe to say the “Bookshelf Riddim” is a  classic 1990’s production and that’s a massive accomplishment because the 1990’s is considered one of Dancehall greatest era. 

Fast forward to September 2018 the “Bookshelf riddim” has a rebirth with Khalia Million who is signed to Tony Kelly’s K-Liciouis label has just released “My Name”.
