Charlie Pro Records latest riddim driven project “Movin Feva” is nothing short of cold.
The 13 track project features a balanced mix of new comers and noted heavywieghts, but delivers nothing surprising that would make it a worthy addition to any reggae collection.
The first three tracks lacks the momentum necessary to draw listeners into the riddim’s soundscape.
Ideally the project jumps off at track 4 with Bushman delivering “always on mind” with such artistc precision, that he makes the previous tracks forgivable.
Busy Signal commands the girls into a “Whining Feva”, and though not his greatest release this year it conforms to the consistency expected from an artist of his caliber.
Chase Cross come and goes on “Living It Up”, so does Fambo on “Fashion Pro”. Koolant asks what the “World Coming Too”. Navino wallows in Auto Tune on “Nuh Fight War Fi Man”, but still uses the chance to deliver a well written single.
Prince Candid fills a gap before Tarrus delivers the Global Reggae hit single “We Run It”, and caps the Riddims only Black Diamond.
Dallas Di Emperor coughs up “One More Night”, before giving the riddim its due to close the “Movin Feva” Project.
The riddim itself is a solid one. and one hopes Charile Pro will give “Movin Feva” a second coming with a good dose of hard hitting, well written tracks that can spark the vibe the riddim aims at achieving.
