12. Cadenza featuring Busy Signal and Stylo G โ€” Foundation
cadenza-foundation-busy-signal-stylo-g

Cadenza is the production alias of Oliver Rodigan, son of legendary radio DJ (and sound clash titan), David Rodigan. Hinged on a sample of the classic Real Rock riddim, his debut single “Foundation” mixes classic reggae/sound system vibes with some modern touches in the bass and drum departments, and vocals from the reliably entertaining Busy Signal and Stylo G. The video, meanwhile, introduces Rodiganโ€™s vision for Cadenza as a place where Major Lazer-esque animated visuals collide with northwest London West Indian grocery shops and Saab convertibles. Rodigan’s upcoming debut album is definitely a project to look out for. โ€”Jesse Serwer
