Reviews for our Traveller Records vinyl, the RIDE ON EP are coming through!
“Biggest hip hop release yet for Traveller Records. Using a killer loop sample from Clarence Wheeler & The Enforcers (Right On!) this hits all the right spots for the dance floor and if you're down with the likes of Ugly Duckling or Speech Defect then this is for you!”
- Nik Weston - Mukatsuku Records
"'Ride On' is pure party rockin' hip hop the way it should be done. As a fan of old skool rap and the Clarence Wheeler classic, this hits all the right buttons for me!"
- Dom Servini - Wah Wah 45s / Shook Mag
"Traveller Records out of Finland hooked me up with a few copies for our shop and I’m definitely thankful for that! I mean how can you go wrong with Ohmega Watts and Raashan Ahmad rhyming on the same record. I don’t think it’s possible. The title cut, ´Ride On´ featuring Raashan is a B-Boy’s dream dropping the deep funk beats laced with organ, horns, and a vocal sample chanting Ride On! I like that one a lot. Other flavors on this record include the danceably smooth, ´Floor To The Roof´ featuring Velben, the mellow cut, ´To The Sky´ featuring Ohmega Watts - perfect to bump in for your floss ride when you’re riding with your B-Girl, and ´Paradise´ with Moka Only is a smoothed out conscious Hip Hop tune. Dragon Fli Empire comes doctor recommended!"
"´Ride On´ is a sure fire dancefloor groover!!! ´Paradise´ will also definitely make dj sets!!!
- Jon Kennedy - Organik Recordings
You can purchase the vinyl at various online spots including HHV.de, Juno Records and other retailers.
