Of course you all know that mixtapes certainly aren’t my favourite thing, but you should also know that I make exceptions. Well I’m going to add Achis Reggae favourite Sherkhan of Tiger Records to a list highlighted by DJ Child and the likes of people who can make good mixtapes, because he’s adding his name to the bunch with the very first “Reggae Zone Mix-CD”. The reason why I like this one (unsurprisingly, I did just tell you he was one of my favourites) is because a great deal of the material is proven by me, I already like it. Seriously, you just kind of casually place what is probably the best song I’ve heard all year, ‘Cross Me Heart’ by Junior X, on a mixtape and you’ve got my attention and you’ve got it IMMEDIATELY. Not to mention other big tunes from the likes of Sizzla, Diana Rutherford (WICKED combination tune, ‘Under The Covers’ alongside Assailant), Norris Man, Perfect, Lutan Fyah and others - Add those and you now have my undying respect. Big big piece.
