NiceUp Tracks Of The Week

Frankie Paul - Worries In The Dance

Frankie Paul was born Paul Blake in 1965 - the singer was blind until having an operation during his childhood which gave him a small amount of vision. He is known as Jamaica's Stevie Wonder and was visited by Wonder during his school days, who encouraged the young Paul to get into music. Produced by the late and great Henry 'Junjo' Laws and backed by the Roots Radics band, this tune came out on the Volcano label in 1983. In this track Frankie expresses his concern of the unrest in the dancehalls - it was a hit and helped to establish him among the other top ranking vocalists of the time. The track remains a classic in dancehalls today. Other hits he recorded with Junjo Laws' Volcano label include Pass The Tu Shung Pen and Curfew In The Dance.

Queen Omega - Judgement

Born in Trinidad, Queen Omega was winning calypso song competitions at the early age of 9 and continues to impress in her early 20's with 4 strong LPs already under her belt. This is the track that sparked the Judgement riddim (one of the 'Judgement' riddims – there’s a few!) which also features Capleton, Lukie D and Jah Mason, Ras Shiloh, and Admiral T (the French artist, not Admiral Tibet). It is out on the label Special Delivery, and produced by the very talented duo BOST & BIM (Matthieu BOST & Jeremie "BIM" DESSUS) - reggae/dancehall/hiphop producers based in France. It is also on Queen Omega's LP Destiny, released on Special Delivery in 2004.
