Version

There are at least two entries with the artist name 'Version': 1) 'Version' is a project by producers Charles Webster and and Martin 'Atjazz' Iveson. http://versionsounds.com 2) 'Version' refers to the instrumental backing every reggae track. Traditionally, the track with artist would be on Side A of a 45-RPM record; the "riddim" version of same track would appear on Side B. In modern times, where MP3s are much more popular than vinyl, the riddim appears at the end of a riddim release CD or MP3 release.
