►►► Classic Friday! ►►► Setting the Pace!

In Motorsport, a pace car is used to limit the
speed of competing cars during a caution period,
or at a time when there's an obstruction on the
race track.  When the pace car is on the track,
no one, not even one car, is able to pass it; that
car sets the pace!
Sometimes we get so caught up in what we're
doing, and so determined to achieve our goal(s),
that we abuse others in the process.  Before we
get to those levels, we need to apply the pace
car to 'slow down the pace' which is the name
of today's Throwback Thursday profile!
Produced by Sheldon "Calibud" Stewart & Norman
"Bulpus" Bryan for VP Records Riddim Driven
series, this riddim was one of the sweetest as it
featured the vocals of the cool ruler, Mr. Gregory
Isaacs, who teamed with the ole gangalee, Louie
Culture on the chune "Tune In!"  Another hit chune
from the riddim is Buju Banton's "Nah Move Right"
where the artist speaks of the effects of gun crime. 
Further on in the riddim, the producers switch up
the arrangement of the riddim, making it more
melodic, and base it off of Alton Ellis's "Breaking Up."

Leaders in that segment include Glen Washington's
"I Stand Alone" and Junior Kelly's "Sleep Last Night."
Broadcasting at 320kbps, 'Slow Down The Pace'
P.S. 1:  Yesterday's e-blast had a broken link to
the Bellyas Riddim.  The correct link is here: 
P.S. 2:  Last week's Thrownback Thursday featured
a new chune from Luciano called "Moving On".
I mentioned that I didn't know the riddim details,
but thanks to Tommi from Komposti Sound,
Paulo from Reggae Portugal, Dash Eye, Unite
and the entire Tribe of Kings Family, we now
know the original chune was called "Only A Smile"
which was performed by the Paragons for Duke
Reid's Treasure Isle Records!
P.S. 3:  Reggae 4 has now teamed with
On Tha Move uniting London and New
York.  Peep the video here:  Two Continents, Two
