Protoje’s “Hail Rastafari” is possibly the best example of a vintage dubstyle being created in Jamaica right now. Replete with 80’s-sounding samples, it seems to attempt the creation of some great hit off a circa 1984 record which never existed. Firehouse Crew bassist Donald “Danny Bassie” Dennis’ superb performance on the track makes it all the more believable. —Martei Korley
