After almost 15 years of label history and global smashs like the "Doctor's Darling" and the "Cure" Riddim, and TANYA STEPHENS monster hit "It's A Pity" or T.O.K.s "Shining Star", today we release the 20th GERMAICA Riddim! For the "Xleration Riddim" Leipzig based Dancehall Soundsystem UPLIFTMENT INT'L and upcoming producer TINY DAWSON joint forces to deliver a firmly Reggae rooted Instrumental which as well easily bridges the gap to nowadays sound aesthetics and arrangements.
Label chief PIONEAR digged deep in the label vaults and came back with a 2003 VYBZ KARTELL called "Marihuana Gone To Bed" to contribute to this jubilee release. AGENT SASCO sounds really "Michael Jackson-ish" on his "Universal Language (Love)" while the pre release single "High Grade" is another Ganja anthem by Dancehall Veteran MR. G aka GOOFY alongside Jamaican newcomer VERSHON and Ugandan Superstar BOBI WINE. The last song represents the growing European Dancehall fraternity with Bosno-Suedes SANJIN & YOUTHMAN and their entertaining "For A While" which is as well part of their debut EP "Balkan Dancehall (GERMAICA DIGITAL).

The following TV- and radio-interviews, shows all over the Dalmatian coast and serious airplay for the debut single stirred the interest of the biggest local record labels and lead up to the album release "FOOD LOVE MUSIC" in 2010 with the local major label CROATIA RECORDS made them a well-known guest in the upper segment of the local Radio Charts. The videos for "CIRIBIRIBELA" and "MOJE PLAVE OCI" were on heavy rotation on MTV Adria and all other local TV stations.
