OLDIES SUNDAY: Thriller U – Sweetest Sound (1989)


Today, we celebrate one of Jamaica’s respected Vocalists, Thriller U. Today (August 14) he celebrates his birthday, and for our Oldies Sunday selection, we highlight one of his earliest singles, “Sweetest Sound“.

Produced by “Bobby Digital” Dixon on the “Peanie Peanie Riddim” and released through Digital-B Records in 1989, Thriller U, a then Teen sensation, gives us a song that all the DJs loved. With his smooth vocals, Thriller U borrows from Anita Wards’ 1979 Disco hit, “Ring My Bell” for the chorus of a song that goes into attack mode for any “Soundbwoy” who wants to test a Champion Sound. Whether they ensure that the vibes is right at a party or secure victory at any Sound Clash, Thriller U sings for the sound that runs the place. “Sweetest Sound” was included in the compilation album “Two Good To Be True” featuring Admiral Tibet, that was released in 1989 through Digital-B Records.

Since the release of “Sweetest Sound”, Thriller U went on to enjoy a successful solo career, and became a member of the super group L.U.S.T. with Singing Melody, Lukie D, and Tony Curtis. Thriller U is still active with a plethora of singles out, and he still gives his all with every performance. Big up Thriller on his birthday!

Thank You Thriller U For This Classic!

OLDIES SUNDAY: Dirtsman – Hot This Year (1991)


With 2020 coming to a close, we can truly say that this was a crazy year. While we don’t know what the future holds, we just have to move forward with a positive mindset. With that in mind, today’s final Oldies Sunday selection for 2020 comes from the late Deejay, Dirtsman with his 1991 hit, “Hot This Year“.

Produced by the late Bobby Digital for Digital B Records on the Drum Song/Hot This Year Riddim (there is another version that’s produced by Phillip Smart that shares similar production), Dirtsman exudes confidence on this one as he realizes his growing popularity, and his prowess as an artist. From annihilating his opponents in lyrical showdowns to being ready with the lyrics, Dirtsman was on the verge of being even greater. Sadly, he passed away on December 21, 1993 at the age of 27. “Hot This Year” was featured on the late Deejay’s album, “Acid“. While “Hot This Year” is one of his biggest songs, we dedicate it to those who see 2021 as year for growth, positive changes, building back broken bonds, and a lot more success. Keep your head up!

Oh she cute eeh?” are the opening words to Reggae Artist Sizzla’sWoman I Need You” single from his critically acclaimed 2002 album, “Da Real Thing (Get It Here)“. At the time, Sizzla was on a blazing trail thanks to his “One Of Those Days (Dry Cry) single, but today he has another high point in his career. Today marks the release of DJ Khaled’s 10th studio album, “Grateful“, and Sizzla is both featured and has his 2002 single sampled on the album. “Woman I Need You” was produced by Bobby “Digital” Dixon for Digital-B Records on the “Dem Gone Riddim“. The sample appears on the track, “It’s Secured” which features Rapper/Producer Travis Scott, and Hip Hop Icon Nas, and produced by DJ Khaled, Cool & Dre, and 808-Ray. This marks the second time the track has been sampled as it first appeared on Rapper Cam’Ron’s 2004 “More Gangsta Music” which featured fellow Rapper Juelz Santana. Digital-B Records has been a part of many successful singles from the likes of Shabba Ranks, Coco Tea, Morgan Heritage, his son Giark, the late Garnet Silk, and was the Producer of Sizzla’s “Black Woman and Child” album. DJ Khaled’s “Grateful” album also features Dancehall Artist Mavado with production from Jamaican Producer Troyton. The album is now available on iTunes, and all streaming services.
