Alkaline – Gyal Bruk Out
Alkaline is the hottest new artist in dancehall and this is the hit song that gets played in every Heatwave dance. One of the craziest basslines in the world so it’s perfect for those massive speaker boxes at carnival.
Fuse ODG & Sean Paul – Dangerous Love
Love how Fuse keeps linking up with dancehall artists: Elephant Man, Stylo G, Konshens and now crossover king Sean Paul. It’s like they took essence of summer and put it in a three minute pop song.
Kerwin Du Bois – Too Real
Every year a soca hit comes flying out of T&T carnival in February and takes the world by storm – this is the 2014 vintage. Huge singalongs when it played off the truck at Berlin Carnival; scenes that will doubtless be repeated at Notting Hill.
QQ – One Drop
The biggest dance craze in bashment this year: a club full of women doing the one drop is a sight to behold. Seeing a whole street one dropping at carnival might well cause the fabric of spacetime to rupture.
Jah Cure – All Of Me
You just can’t beat a reggae cover of a banging R’n’B singalong. Jah Cure takes John Legend to Jamaica and everything is perfect.
