BLACK TALONS 357 PRESENTS: TRIBUTE TO PENTHOUSE RECORDS

BLACK TALONS 357 PRESENTS: TRIBUTE TO PENTHOUSE RECORDS
 
 
One of the greatest record labels to ever come out of Jamaica, started by super producer Donovan Germain at 56 Slipe Road, Kingston 5. Donovan opened Penthouse Records in 1988 and produced massive hits for Wayne Wonder, Terry Ganzie, Garnett Silk, Tony Rebel, Cutty Ranks, Beres Hammond, Marcia Griffiths and of course Buju Banton just to name a few, with brilliant relics of Studio One riddims. Some of these riddims include hit tracks such as : “A Love I Can Feel”, “Always Together”, “Answer/Never Let Go”, “College Rock”, “Darker Shade Of Black”, “Feeling Soul”, “Freedom Blue / MPLA”, “General”, “Heavy Rock”, “Land Of Love”, “Lecturer”, “Love Me Always”, “Movie Star", “Nanny Goat”, “Pure Sorrow”, “Swing Easy”, “Things & Time”, “Things Come Up To Bump”, “You'll Never Know”. He also “recut” some Bob Marley riddims : “Forever Loving Jah”, “Heathen”, “Soul Rebel”, “Thank You Lord”, “Time Will Tell”.

He did not content himself with modernizing classic riddims. He produced original riddims like “Dickie” (1992), “Falling In Love”(1992), “If Loving Was A Crime” (1993), “Champion” (1994), “Cannabis Vibes” (1997), “Warriors Don't Cry” (1997), “Love Dem Bad” (1997), “Up Close & Personal” (1997), “Extortioners” (2000) or “Automatic” (2008).


The label is also well know thanks to great combinations between artists like Wayne Wonder & Buju Banton (“Massa God World A Run”, “Bonafide Love”), Beres Hammond & Buju Banton (“Who Say”, “Pull It Up”) or Marcia Griffiths & Cutty Ranks ( “Really Together”, “Half Idiot").


In 2006 Germain opened his new high tech studio on Ballater Avenue. Today, he works with a team of upcoming artists such as Romain Virgo (2007 Digicel Rising Stars winner), Torch, Shuga (2009 Digicel Rising Stars winner), Exco Levi (2012 Reggae Recording of the year Canada) or Dalton Harris (youngest Digicel Rising Stars winner in 2010) & Busy Signal.
