DJ Frass Records has steadily carved out a reputation for high quality productions and well-produced songs that can stand the test of time. The producer DJ Frass has emerged as one of the best young producers of his generation, and he can be especially proud of his latest one drop project, Diamond and Gold riddim, which is carved in reggae oak: solid.

Arguably the best song on the riddim is Jah Cure's 'World is In Trouble' where the brilliant singer tackles social ills with a wonderfully written song. Jah Cure bleeds all over the track when he croons: the world is in trouble/in every ghetto there is a struggle'. One just has to glance at the headlines in newspapers all over the world to prove his words true.
The most controversial song on the riddim is Queen Ifrica's 'Corrupt System'. She takes a swipe at Bunting's financial record with the artfully conceived sentence that addresses the mathematical side of the crime equation.
Queen Ifrica deejays: we know yu into banking/'but u caan calculate crime, yu have to solve it/first thing you have to do is clean up the force/too many wrong people in the right post'. Word.
She teases the Minister of National Security, saying: "don't cry Mr. Bunting, mek me tell yu something', sounding like a good friend helping a colleague frustrated by an enigma that defeats reason and rhyme. She paints a somber portrait of Jamaica's spate of murderous acts, the third highest in the world, against the backdrop of police corruption and government ineptitude.
I Octane puts on his religious armour as he undertakes 'Jah Jah Mission' while Alaine declares that 'Jah is Good' , celebrating His influence on her life. The group T.O.K delivers the chorus of the title track, Diamonds and Gold, in a high falsetto reminiscent of international superstar Prince in his prime. Christopher Martin continues his excellent run with the sweet R & B-influenced 'Baby I Need You' where he shows off the full range of his soulful voice, while Cecile promises to "Always Be Around". Demarco shows why he is a bonafide double threat with the melodic 'Me She Want' where he playfully boasts that the object of his affection only has eyes for him. He is known for his dancehall street anthems but is equally good on one drop projects. Chuck Fenda's distinctive voice works to good effect on 'Stop Worry' where he professes his love for a girl despite other competing romantic interests. He deejays: 'Don't worry about a next gal cause a yu mi say'.
Sophia Squire sounds like the girl-next-door singing Love Don't Hurt, an anti-abuse rant where she encourages battered women to take a stand and say no to abuse. She promises eye for an eye, and fire for fire, if abuse enters the relationship. It is a promise that she means to keep as she reminds "love don't hurt" and "if yu eva raise yu hand fi lick me, me and yu will roll in yah". The sleeper hit on the compilation is definitely Niyorah's compelling 'Love the Same Way' with a catchy singalong hook that can become a favourite in the dancehalls because of its great romantic sentiments. Another song to look out for is Daville's "Your Body On Me".
The ultra-talented Jermaine Michael shows why he is widely regarded as one of the best vocalists to have emerged in Jamaica in the past year with 'Trouble Nuh Set Like Rain' .Other standout songs include Fantan Mojah's 'Talk Them a Talk' and Peter Morgan is at his brilliant best with "Dem Can't See I'. Emerging reggae star Iba Mahr's quavering style compliments 'Burn Out Bridges and Barriers' and rounds out this great project.
