To big up the latest edition of VP's annual Reggae Gold compilation, BBC1 DJ Seani B has strung together a mixtape of the summer's biggest tunes. 2015 is shaping up to be a landmark year in dancehall, and Seani's spread of records shows just how broad the genre has become: Gully Bop and Eddie Murphy pop up on the same tracklist, and Canadian crossover stars Magic! barely sound out of place. The gem might be Toian's "Love It," a breezy ballad that sounds like a Rihanna demo from her days back on the island. Reggae Gold 2015 drops July 17th, pre-order on iTunes now.
