100 dintre cele mai bune piese Reggae & Dancehall din 2016

English version of the article

Anul se apropie de final, iar pentru noi a venit vremea topurilor. Conform tradiției vom începe cu o selecție alcătuită din 100 dintre cele mai bune piese reggae și dancehall lansate în 2016.

Selecția noastră este subiectivă. Am încercat să ținem cont de câteva criterii cruciale cum ar fi calitatea producției, mesaj, versuri, originalitate sau popularitate. De asemenea, între cele 100 de cântece veți putea face cunoștiință cu diferite stiluri de reggae, de la roots la dancehall și de aici la dub, dar și cu metode variate de interpretare.

Am păstrat și categoria bonus, acolo unde am strâns 20 de piese ce se abat mai mult sau mai puțin de la reggae, fiind influențate de alte genuri precum electro, pop, r&b, jungle, dubstep, pop sau hip-hop. Tot aici am inserat și un refix, dar și un remake al unei piese celebre.

De asemenea, avem din nou și categoria extra bonus, acolo unde vă puteți delecta cu 5 piese care au putut fi ascultate pentru prima dată în 2015, dar și-au câștigat popularitatea în 2016.

Zona Reggae

Am încercat să ne gândim și la piesa anului 2016, iar dacă ar fi după noi premiul merge către Rejoice, cântecul interpretat în colaborare de către Sara Lugo & Jah9, produs de Oneness Records.

Considerăm că această capodoperă, cu mesaj puternic, clar și rostit răspicat, se apropie cel mai mult de puritatea și naturalețea muzicii reggae.

Felicitări fetelor! Jos pălăria!

Revenind la topul nostru, lista este realizată în ordine alfabetică, iar voi puteți asculta piesele de mai jos printr-un simplu click pe link. Pentru cele mai bune piese din 2015, 2014 și 2013 puteți consulta lista aiciaici și respectiv aici.

100 Best Reggae & Dancehall Songs in 2016

This year is coming to an end and it’s time for us to make the charts. Keeping traditions strong we shall begin with a selection of the best 100 reggae and dancehall tracks of 2016.

This is a subjective selection. We tried to take account of a few crucial criteria such as the quality of the production, message, lyrics, originality and popularity. Also, among the 100 tracks you can hear various styles of reggae, from roots to dancehall and then to dub, and various performances.

We have kept the bonus category, with 20 tracks, which cannot be labeled quite as reggae. They use instruments inspired by electro, pop, r&b, jungle, dubstep, pop or hip-hop. There is an extra bonus category too. It contains songs released in 2015, that became popular in 2016.

Zona Reggae

We were thinking also about the song of 2016. And the winner is Rejoice, performed by Sara Lugo & Jah9 and produced by Oneness Records.

We believe this tune is a masterpiece, which has a powerful message, bluntly delivered, and it’s the most pure and natural reggae song of the year.

Congrats girls! Standing ovation for you!

Back to our top. The following list is in alphabetical order and you can listen to the tracks by a simple click on the link. For 2015, 2014 and 2013 you can see the lists herehere and also here.
