Benn-i here again. Get ready for this months update, i got something nice for you all.

A while ago some of my customers/followers/friends asked me if i could make a new version of the Mud Up Riddim. Normally im more into the reggae than Dancehall, but i love challenges.. 🙂 So i decided to do a new version on the Mud Up Riddim. My own version.

History Mud Up Riddim

The Mud Up Riddim originates from the Skengdon label, first track is by Super Cat titled, what else, Mud Up. Chaka Demus cut a track at this riddim (one of the four he did), Jump Up, that was very successful, so the riddim is also known as Workie Workie,because of this repeated lyric in the tune. Pretty big in the late 80’s and early 90’s this riddim, so a second return at 2006.

I also remember this riddim from the early 90’s.. That why i wanted to give it a try and start making my own version of it.
