JAMAICAN production powerhouse, Chimney Records, continue their diverse array of musical releases with their latest production, entitled the Tropical Escape Riddim.

The authentic reggae-based production's artiste bill features Romain Virgo, Christopher Martin, Alaine, Queen Ifrica, Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid, Tarrus Riley, Cecile, and I-Octane.

Instrumentation wise, reggae lovers will be glad to hear the riveting guitar arrangement, drums and more.

This year's most successful young male vocalists, Romain Virgo and Christopher Martin, each deliver solid tracks with Everlasting Love and Too Big respectively. Everlasting Love is about Virgo's declaration to his partner, while Martin asks for his lover to return in Too Big.

Songstress Alaine describes the potential of her ongoing courtship with the person she admires as Amazing, and conscious chanter Queen Ifrica shows her vulnerability to love in Let's Get Silly.

Rising reggae act Chronixx conveys a message of motivation for Jamaica's working class in Ain't No Giving In.

Another reggae fast-riser, Kabaka Pyramid, speaks on the injustices of the free market system from his point of view in No Capitalists.

Tarrus Riley croons his love for reggae music's ambience in Gimme Likkle One Drop, while Ce'Cile and I-Octane release socially conscious numbers with Life Is So Precious and What About the Poor, respectively.

TEENage Hitlist believes that Chimney Records has another release to be proud of with the Tropical Escape Riddim, and hopes that it will get its just airplay going into 2013.
