Master One Productions’ owner, J. Kennedy, is ensuring that the dancehall scene continues to enjoy first class recordings with the topper top on the scene.

The First Born riddim which was released in March and features artistes such as Sizzla – ‘I’m Free’; Luciano – ‘Back in Love’; Chrisinti – ‘Overstand’; Bascom X – ‘Love You’; Richie Spice – ‘Trouble In The World’; Capleton – ‘Recognise’; Turbulance – ‘Waiting For’; Hawkeye – ‘Mr. Wassy’; Alozade – ‘Squeeze Off’; Bescenta – Cell’; Kashwayne – ‘The Mood’; Elephant Man – ‘Make It’ among others, is definitely going places.

From the reaction of hardcore dancehall lovers, this riddim seems set to enjoy the same success as the much talked about Drop Leaf riddim.

Among the leading songs on the riddim is Elephant Man’s ‘Make It’. This gives his fans a different side of the DJ as the song is actually inspirational and quite unlike Elephant Man’s usual.

The First Born riddim, which was created by Fire House Crew on the very up-tempo and upbeat One Drop riddim, is a combination of the talents of Bongo Herman, who did the drums, and Pam Hall who enhances what was already a top class production with her beautiful harmonies.

Distributed by All Access in Kingston, tracks off this red-hot riddim are enjoying good rotation on the airwaves.

It doesn’t matter where you are located in the world, Master One Productions has ensured that the riddim is available through their broad-based distribution network.

They are also in the process of doing music videos for Richie Spice’s and Bescenta’s songs.
