Riddim Rider: Rain Drops Review

by David Jeffries

A little slower and a little quieter than most of 2004's riddims, the "rain drops" riddim is one can you hear over and over without going crazy. It's very slick and very hip-hop with a hip-moving beat that just forces the singer to be sexier than usual. Tanya Stephens gets it jumping between a kitten's purr and a lion's roar on her excellent "Tired Of." Vybz Kartel display that their skills keep getting better and Elephant Man had a huge hit in Jamaica with his hectic "Bunn Out." A second disc is included featuring slight remixes of the first disc's tracks with most focusing on the riddim's robotic edge.
