12. Blacklight Riddim (Mixpak)

Straight out of Greenpoint BK, Dre Skull cooked up one this year’s most interesting riddims, in Blacklight. Originally slated for a Shakira song, this riddim has only four artists on it โ€” Tifa, Konshens, QQ and Spice โ€” and each performance is a banger. A blurring of dancehall, dembow, and electronic production borrowing some masterfully understated twerk claps, Dre Skull continues to assert a consistent presence in the game. – DJ Tanner
