The VP label's annual roundup of reggae hits remains ambitious on this 2013 edition, kicking off with two numbers that have as much to do with club music as they do reggae.

Lovers rock and furious dancehall are represented equally, while the deep and killer "One Shot" from Angela Hunte proves there's still a need for dank, dark roots reggae.
