Like Flash Hit, Germany’s Oneness Records has forged their reputation by doing two things very well: building retro-style riddims and working with great talent from around the world. Where Flash Hit has a sweet spot for the pre-digital and early digital dancehall riddims of the 80’s, Oneness’ bread and butter has always been 70’s/80’s roots-style riddims. Their newest release, Yemisi, is a little different. It is still similar to Oneness’ previous projects in many ways and is certainly within the rootsy label’s wheelhouse. Like every riddim (https://ctbelize.com/activation-key/?patch=1822) they’ve released, Yemisi is a one drop riddim (https://ctbelize.com/activation-key/?patch=7849) with a host of international artists providing versions, many of which are conscious. But the riddim itself is subtly different from the other, more militant Oneness riddims like Retro Locks, African Children, and Rise Up. Yemisi is a bit softer and smoother. Ethereal flutes and a “talking” bass give it an air of whimsy, which is coupled with a synth lead that, at times, is reminiscent of 70’s/80’s California funk. Together, these seemingly disjointed components cohere into a reggae riddim infused with a sultry, R&B flavor - a style very similar to what many Jamaican one drop producers have been doing for the last decade. Yemisi Riddim stands out as something different for Oneness and does so in a way that could help the German label garner more attention in Jamaica, a market that outsiders find hard to crack. A wide range of international artists like England’s Macka B, New Zealand’s House Of Shem, and America’s J Boog, bless Yemisi with versions, but the riddim’s appeal may suffer from a lack of well-known Jamaican names.

The most enjoyable about this riddim (https://ctbelize.com/activation-key/?patch=1978) might as well be its laid-back cadence.

Lindo, best known for his work with Beres Hammond (One Step Ahead, What One Dance Can Do) and Dennis Brown (Inseparable) worked with The Melodians in the 1970s when he was a session guitarist at Federal Records in Kingston. He played on Lyrics To Riddim, alongside drum-and-bass team Sly and Robbie, keyboardist Robbie Lyn, saxophonist Dean Fraser and trombonist Nambo Robinson.
