Genre Help - Drum and Bass with Jamaicans

Anyone know if there is a genre name or at least any other songs that are drum and bass-y or have phat drops in with Jamaican people on the vocals...? Not sure if Jungle/Dub/Old Skool really cuts it.

If you don't know what i mean here are some examples:
Sub Focus & Rudimental - Trouble ft. Chronixx & Maverick Sabre: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjDS20Qy9aI
Pendulum - Tarantula: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVch_PK7SOY
Gorillaz - Saturnz Bars ft. Popcaan (Cadenza Remix) [ft. Assassin, Mad Cobra, Teddy Bruckshot & Killa P]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3cPB5oub68
Major Lazer - Blaze Up The Fire ft. Chronixx: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRpUtwyEU_w
Protoje - Who Knows ft. Chronixx (Shy FX remix): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HH3hzv07ick
Chase & Status - Streetlife: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-0IkwPeFL0
Chase & Status - Big Man Skank ft. Mr Vegas
Chase & Status - Real No More ft. Shy FX & Kiko Bun
Star.One - Original Badman ft. Takura & Assassin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAUSeYtAsO8
The Bug - Skeng ft. Killa P & Flowdan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfP20D_V0Zg
The Bug - Jah War ft. Flowdan (Loefah Remix): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ocih6WexNEU

Should be enough... Looking for tunes like these. Remixes welcome

Cheers
I would say those are a mixture of Jungle,Drum 'n' Bass and electronic.

Protoje doesn't really sound like the others though.
nahhh your problem is listening to Chase And Status and Pendulum lol

Jungle does cut it fam. Try "Shy FX Jungle Album Mix" just google exactly like that, you'll get it to pop up. Tat's a ****ing classic to anyone who knows better.

Try Congo Natty "Junglist." That's a proper tune.

I do the old school **** cos it's proper.

Try Ruben Da Silva "Sensi Skank"

"Take a Lick 1994" that's massive, imo

Cutty Ranks "Limb by Limb"

then if you're on youtube just look at suggested videos, there's loads

Benny Page is alright, but he's Drum and Bass. Jungle has heavier bass.

Try FaxCool's channel. Bare Reggae D&B tunes. I have an entire collection but can't list em all. My dad is a 90s raver and left me bare vinyls lol.

If you could listen to the Gorillaz cadenza remix and tell me any other guys with styles like the features (assassin and killa p and teddy bruckshot and mad cobra etc and flow dan actually). big fan of that v gruff v big jamaican accent/style. especially when the beat is nuts like on that saturnz bars remix

Check out Jamakabi and Riko Dan. You've got a good taste in music btw. I heard that cadenza remix the other day, sick track.

The vocal style is considered Dancehall to tracks like this and the Gorillaz track, however there's lot of crossing over of genres nowadays so it's hard to tie it down to one name. Killa P/Teddy/Flowdan/Riko Dan/Jamakabi are usually considered Grime with Jamaican patois, however at the end of day it's all related in one way or another (Grime partially derives from Dancehall).
