Orlando's dancehall playlist: May 2016

Keeping the fires of our dancehall and bashment riddim burning, we've now simplified the format to make catching up on your favourite jams even easier. All the best riddims and essential listening for the month is now available further down the feature in a handy playlist – cherry-picked especially for you by Escape From Nature boss, Orlando Volcano. 

Over to you, Orlando.

Prezzi Inkjet Riddim  

This dramatic riddim, laden with synthesized harps and strings is the home of few great tracks. The first highlight comes in the form of Unfollow by Khago, another great internet themed anthem from Jamaica. On top of that, QQ's track Good Gyal is bound to be a summer hit.

 Tj Records Summa 16 Riddim

A classic summer riddim from Tj Records. There's not a huge amount that can be said for this solid and simple riddim, but it does have some great versions. The stand-out track is Summer by Vybz Kartel, which will be soundtracking every pool party this summer. Another version that has to be mentioned is Bathing Suit by Ishawna, who is straight murdering every single riddim she appears on these days, and close becoming one of my favorite artists.
