15. Alborosie Meets King Jammy – Dub of Thrones

In the style of classic dub clash LPs like King Tubby Meets Uptown Rockers and King Jammy’s own classic meetings with Scientist, this surprising joint effort from the Jamaican dancehall godfather and Sicily-born/Kingston-living Alborosie sounds straight out of dub’s classic analog era, with buckets of bass and reverb spilling out of every track. Deejay pioneer U Roy and renowned Jamaican singer Errol Dunkley make appearances, for an added listening bonus.—Saxon Baird
