Ouji Riddim Best of 2017 According to Pandora

Ouji Riddim

OUJI-RIDDIM-COVER-(Upsetta-Records)The Ouji Riddim was released by Upsetta Records in October of 2017.  A collaboration between Upsetta Records and Loud City; the riddim is powerful, infectious and inspiring.  But the line up makes a huge statement that this 2017 Reggae Riddim release is serious!

The Riddim features International Superstar Busy Signal.  His single “Hold a Medi” became an instant hit.  Additionally, the riddim featured historical veterans Mykal “Grammy” Rose and Luciano.  Typically, that alone would make for an impressive release.  However Upsetta also added established reggae stars Jah Vinci, Chuck Fenda x Capital D, Delly Ranx and Lutan Fyah. The riddim was rounded up by upcoming talent Stephen Dajure, Jah Wiz and fast rising star Koffee!

In fact of this impressive line up, many would argue Koffee’s “Burning” is top of the top!

Best of 2017: Reggae, Soca and Afrobeats

This week, worldwide streaming power Pandora confirmed the buzz surrounding the Ouji Riddim is not just hype.  Pandora added the latest Upsetta Records’ production to their Best of 2017: Reggae, Soca and Afrobeats list.

In 2017, roots reggae took a backseat to dancehall, which is seeing a lot of crossover attention. Luckily, there were a number of riddims that kept the roots movement going, many of which we chronicled on our Today’s Reggae Rootsstation. Our favorite of these was the Ouji Riddim. Produced by Upsetta Records, the churning bassline dances under seraphic horn lines and playful chimes, a sound reminiscent of a riddim from the early 2000s. We’re never mad at a ganja tune from Busy Signal, and hearing veterans like Mykal Rose,Jah Vinci and Chuck Fenda is always a treat. However, it’s the youth who have the freshest take on this music, and 17-year-old Koffe definitely turns up the temperature on “Burning.” – Pandora
