In the previous post i talked about some of my favorite old school riddims.This time am going to give breif highlights of some of the riddim that i think are quite a hit.These are riddims that have been produced in the past two months.
The first one on the list is the tropical punch riddim.The riddim produced by True Gift Entertainment in July 2016 has received positive feedback from riddim fans.Artists who have recorded a song with tropical punch include the self proclaimed king of dancehall Vybz Cartel with his song goodas from birth.The song is still a hit in most of the radio and TV stations here in Kenya.
I-octane also produced a hit song under the tropical punch riddim.Up fi the ride is a song that instantly makes you jump to the dancing floor.Over the years i-octane has produced a lot of riddims and seems he is getting better each day.Up fi the ride is a massive clubbing hit.

There is this riddim pruduced in June this year that got me liking it.The firefly riddim which is a product of Emudio Records in Germany.One thing that i love about it is the way it starts .It puts one in good mood and find yourself moving your legs.The riddim has been featured by kings and queens of riddims. Denyque with her single these are the nights is one of them.The song which talks about free spirited minds and forgetting your worries…rise your hands up will definitely make you stand and dance to the song.A good music is that which you enjoy and dancing is a way of enjoying.
Another hit song is by Okeefe Aarons who goes by the stage name Jim Laden.Laden who came to the limelight thanks to the Jamaican version of American idol called Digicel Rising Stars and being signed under the Big Ship records,he recorded club tonight a partying song under the firefly riddim.It became quite a hit with its cool lyrics and vocals.Other songs in the same riddim includes i-octane’s hold you,jah vinci’s cant’n tell me and all night by versatile.
