Penthouse Records presents the “Up Close and Personal Riddim,” released in 1998
The “Up Close and Personal Riddim” is a various-artist Dancehall riddim produced by Donovan Germain for his own label, Penthouse Records.
It is a riddim that sounds particularly sweet yet it is not that cheesy at all. Its soft yet bouncy bass line is accompanied by a round lead synthesizer in the chorus. The softness of the chorus highly contrasts with the distorted edgy synthesizer of the verse. Subsequently, it adds dynamism to the rhythm and makes it stand out from the rest.
The compilation features well renowned artists such as Buju Banton, Tanto Metro & Devonte, Beenie Man, Hawkeye, Mr Vegas, Sean Paul and many more. If you like riddims of the late 90’s, make sure you’ve got this one in your collection. It is one of a kind.
