1. Boom Box

Notnice’s Boom Box got some instant rotations when it dropped in December of 2013, but truly exploded in 2014 becoming arguably the year’s biggest riddim. The slow and deliberate heavy bass created the perfect template for Alkaline’s “Gyal Bruk Out” which soon took over as the most requested song in the clubs. Right alongside it was Spice’s “So Mi Like It,” a track so big it spawned a remix with industry heavyweight Busta Rhymes giving it even more crossover appeal on its way to becoming the year’s most ubiquitous dancehall hit. – DJ Arems
