To be less long winded than last time, here is my contribution to the Marvin Gaye Remix world.
007 (Shanty Town) was a Foundation tune by Desmond Dekker. A few versions of this riddim have arose over the years, notably a couple of years ago with artists like Luciano, Sizzla, Jah Mason, and Turbulence. Just recently Shaggy has released a very weathered version of the riddim that evokes that old time sound, which gives this version it's charm. You can find two simultaneous releases by Shaggy, "Move Hype" and "Bonafide Girl" on this new riddim, as well as a new Collie Buddz version called "Searching" which features Roache Killa.
I've had a positive reaction from it so far. I hope it works for you.
