We Look Back At @LenkyMarsden’s “Diwali Riddim” In Our Throwback Playlist Series!


Happy Friday everyone! While many of us are in the middle of Black Friday shopping all over the world, and our American friends are still sleepy after their Thanksgiving feasts, we thought we’d put a lil pep in your step. Bringing back our #13thStreetThrowback Playlist series, we go back to the year 2002 to check out the “Diwali Riddim“!

Produced by StevenLenkyMarsden and released through the 40/40 Label, the Riddim gave us plenty memorable tracks from the likes of General Degree, Wayne WonderBuju Banton, Danny English, and timeless hits like a track called “Get Busy” by Sean Paul (which was featured on a multiplatinum album), and a duo named Brick & Lace with the hit, “Love Is Wicked“. The Riddim has also been sampled by Tiwa Savage, Thutmose, Lumidee, and a certain Superstar by the name of Rihanna.

Get ready to dance! Check out this and many other Playlists here. Do remember to share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
