Throwback of the week: “Zion Gate Riddim”, produced by Lion Paw in 2001
The “Zion Gate Riddim” is a Modern Roots riddim inspired by 1977’s Errol T/Joe Gibbs’ produced “Forty Leg Dread” made famous by Culture and Prince Mohammed . A couple years later, in 1981, Ethnic Records released the single “Satisfaction“ performed by Barbara Jones .
The 2001 Lion Paw Records remake carries a lot of positive vibrations, just like the original. It is a very colorful and uplifting riddim with quickly syncopated guitar strums and dynamic percussions. One can note that Michael ‘Mikey John’ Johnson & Ian Williams did a good job in reinterpreting this late 70’s riddim.
The compilation features Luciano, John Holt, Warrior King, Junior Kelly and more. Check i tout now and let us know what you think o fit. Do not hesitate to comment below. Share if you like it.
