Classic Penthouse Riddims


Love I Can Feel Riddim Compilation Pt.1
“Penthouse’s founder Donovan Germain was born on March 7, 1952 in Kingston, Jamaica. In the 70′s he relocated to New York and was running Keith’s Records, a reggae record shop here in Brooklyn. In 1975, Germain began distributing records for several jamaican producers and started producing. Germain spent much of the 80s travelling between Jamaica, USA and England for his productions. He progressively gave up roots productions and turned to digital riddims. Eventually he moved back to Kingston to open his own Penthouse studio on the top floor of a building on Slipe Road in 1988 (hence the name Penthouse).”
