L’Mint Productions presents the Icy Mint Riddim on streaming & DL
Likkle Minty has been rolling in reggae circles ever since his school days, giving his peers their real education spinning the rudest hits. As he grew up he got all over the scene from sound system selector to music video director to radio show host. He linked with the Peckings Records crew in 2003 where he’s been a mainstay of the Peckings Syndicate, playing out at dances, ever since.
After the success of his debut Phobic Riddim, Likkle Minty once again teams up with the UK’s most dynamic rhythm section - Mafia & Fluxy - to offer the Icy Mint Riddim. It’s a real bouncer inspired by the 80’s era digidub and paying homage to Unity Sound and their much vaunted classic LP Watch How The People Dancing.
Features on the Icy Mint riddim include world class veteran Macka B at the top of his game with ‘Either or Either’ alongside two prime cuts from another veteran Starkey Banton renowned for his hits Don’t Dis Ds Ras for Juggling Records and Jungle Bungle for Fashion Records. The veterans are joined on the release by the energetic flows of international touring artist Kenne Blessin, another maverick outta NW10 in Gee Star and Canadian based Juno award winner Kirk Diamond - each making a strong contribution. The project is topped off by a Likkle Minty dub version and the boasty My Sound from Sparky Rugged (on the back of his debut album on Peckings) featuring an original intro from the inimitable Fuzzy Jones.
Icy Mint Riddim gives a nod and a wink to UK Reggae’s golden age with Likkle Minty’s finest selection of vocal talent to pay homage.

L’Mint Productions presents the Phobic Riddim on 7” Vinyl & DL
Likkle Minty has been rolling in reggae circles ever since his school days, giving his peers their real education spinning the rudest hits. As he grew up he got all over the scene from sound system selector to music video director to radio show host. He linked with the Peckings Records crew in 2003 where he’s been a mainstay of the Peckings Syndicate, playing out at dances, ever since. So it’s surprising that only now has he chosen to venture into production and releasing records. Most producers lick one riddim and test the waters. With the help of Mafia & Fluxy, Likkle Minty has created a riddim so nice he’s pressed it twice! Four prime cuts on the Phobic Riddim that couldn’t be held back so he’s throwing them all out.
The Phobic Riddim is released on two 7 inch vinyls & digital download and is going to capture the skank of modern soundsytem goers with its bouncing heavy sub-bass combining with the original digi-dancehall vibes and the reggae spirit of pure conscious lyrics. Old meets new is not easy to pull off but Likkle Minty’s debut release will have MC’s crying ‘pull up.’
The first cut featuring Starkey Banton strikes a chord with all reggae artists highlighting the conspiracy against conscious music in ‘Reggae Phobia.’ On the flip is the dub which demonstrates Likkle Minty’s vast experience and love for his craft. The other 7 inch features legend Macka B who makes a big statement - ‘Get out of the way, move over, culture is coming like a bulldozer’ and, on the flip, Sun-I-Tafari with gravelly tones and gritty intent expressing a determined outlook of positivity.
One thing is for sure with the Phobic Riddim - Likkle Minty has set the bar high for his future productions and the reggae crowd will be eager to hear more.
