If “Don Dadda” lures you, then “Ram Dancehall” catapults you to the peak of grooviness. It’s a far more visceral and quirkier track where the colorful chords yield a subtly tongue-in-cheek feel. Within the upbeat harmony, there is an indulgent fluidity to it that is anchored by the ambience and PicStitch’s vocals. The track makes a nod to the classic 60s style, but also flaunts an invigorating flair that channels PicStitch’s ambition to protect the genre’s roots and at the same time add his own sonic embellishments to it.
