Let’s start with a tough one. On one hand, early Wiley riddims like “Ice Rink” sound like high-speed answers to millennial dancehall, but they also sound like localized versions of Timbaland, The Neptunes and other turn-of-the- century super-producers. It’s close, but the DJ-friendly nature of grime riddims, their sheer sparseness and that massive bassweight, has us leaning towards ragga. We could imagine Popcaan lacing “Ice Rink”, but US artists still can’t quite catch UK beats unless the script is flipped.

Verdict: Dancehall
