After counting down the best albums, mixtapes, reggae, soca and badman rave, we head into Week 2 of our look back at 2014 with a rundown of all the year’s necessary dancehall riddims. This year, we’ve enlisted the multi-regional Faction Sound Crew—encompassing Vancouver’s DJ Arems, NYC’s DJ Tanner, Miami’s Iron Lyon and our own Deejay Theory out of San Francisco—to give us their field reports, and personal favorites. These riddims got nuff forwards this year, and also helped birth some of the years most successful singles as well.
