What are people's top dancehall tracks in the 120-135bpm genre range?

Fireman's anthem by Capleton has gotta be a personal favourite of mine:

Can I second this request. Have been asked to do some writing for a Dancehall blog and would like to do something on House based Dancehall like Fireman's Anthem. Apart from this and those Funkystepz Vybz Cartel remixes are there any others?

continuum I've tracked down some 140'ish riddims: shadow & darker shaddow rid dim and dark again riddim.


good vocals are:

dark again - vybz's army empire, leftside's suck ya mama

shadow / darker shadow riddim: assasin's carry news, elephant man fan it, vybz's my gun.

hope those are of some help - not house based dancehall i guess but are at least in the right bpm zone. let me know if you come up with anything else.

another thought is to look at slower soca. again a bit off topic, but bpm wise + vibe wise they fit

no worries. obvi calling soca house inspired in the same way you would fireman's anthem is misrepresenting the way soca rhythms and house ones have interacted, but never the less if you want some 130ish soca tips then let me know.
