Coming up on Cast-a-Blast Recordings, Blend Mishkin brings you The Break Out Riddim, A slice of contemporary 80's style Digital Dancehall flavoured bass-driven niceness voiced by some of the most in demand vocalists in the game right now.

Composed by the Athenian badman the riddim rolls along at a dancefloor friendly 80bpm, with trademark whip-cracking snares set alongside a cruising old-school style bassline and complimentary delicate keys and an all round classic style ambience.

On the vocal tip you get Baba The Fyahstudent chanting hard with his now customary relaxed but on point sound on "Fugitive". Next up is Amsterdam's first lady of Reggae/Dancehall, the ever impressive Leah Rosier letting you know exactly how she feels about the 'erb on "I Don't Hide My Ganja". Also on the mic for this riddim set is Ras Daniel leaving you in no doubt that dispite Babylon's wickedness he gwan stand "Firm and True". Finally rounding off the riddim's voicings is the mighty Sani Showbiz with "My Sound", a Sound Clash anthem so hard and heavy it'll kill any tin pan sound that stands against it.

As is often the case with Cast-a-Blast's releases this one ticks multiple boxes and delivers a fresh re-working of much covered ground but with a reinvigorated take on the production and lyrical aspects.

Big Tings a gwan and Mr Cast-a-Blast himself (Blend Mishkin) is right at the heart of a sensational set of lyrical assassins on the Break Out Riddim.
