"The Electric Shock Riddim" produced By Monster at Sparks Records gives the term Chingungundengu (the type of beat under the genre) it's proper meaning as far as Zimdancehall is concerned.

Image
"Zim 1" is the latest offering from Bigyaadz Music. Produced by Trinnie Beats my First impression is Zim 1 Riddim depicts a first for a riddim to be unveiled under the genre Soca in Zimdancehall and believe me you what a riddim this is. Catchy from the first track you will find yourself on the dancefloor involuntarily because that's just how good and enticing this riddim is. Dont let the first 2 tracks from Sunnyman & the evergreen T Makwikwi scare you as their titles suggest because you will be dancing al the way to the last track.
24 tracks so far on the riddim my first attraction was dragged to the  track by the Bigyaadz artist with his signature statement "Ngereketye", yes none other than Simross and the track is entitled "Mafaro".

"Ocean Drive" is a ship yes a ship at least according to the original sleeve provided by the producer of this magnificent riddim. Cool Bellz may have put a lot of effort into this production to be as beautiful as my own definiton of Ocean Drive, a lovely thoroughfare in the South Beach neighbourhood of Miami Beach, Florida - make it a holiday must if you ask me, I recommend it wholeheartedly. 
I rushed To the first track of this 17 track riddim, Automan Musoja's Pake Apedza. Though a sad song about a deceased who has completed his mission and left a task for the living to folow in his footsteps before they time to meet their maker comes. The strings in this riddim is a rare occurence in Zimdancehall and Cool Bellz blends it in well right from the beginning of the riddim. His international status seems to grow with each day as requests for his releases come in from Europe and the Far West especially the Caribbean Islands. princess Tiffalene a member of the KNV (KoNdisu Vat…
