DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, December 2007 - The French based Steppin' Youth Sound System doesn't just know their music, they know how to present 57 tracks in 80 minutes without being accused of ADHD.
The second volume takes off, where the first left us. Again, we have a high number of titles in a relatively short time: 57 in almost 80 minutes. And again, we're not bothered at all by this.
Quite the contrary, I would say.
We move from riddim to riddim rather than from title to title in this one, that's for sure. And since that is the case, it is rather interesting to hear the many different vocalists all making their own thing out of the riddims they ride.
Riddims of which the majority are new ones rather than renderings of classic Studio One basslines, by the way. Yes, this is very much a 21st Century mix in many aspects and the freshness of the material is just one of them.
Who said, that Reggae was a music of the past?
