"DIGITAL REGGAE" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)

WWW, November 14 2009 - In what can only be described as a musical revolution, Jamaica experienced a massive transformation of it's music with the introduction of the Drum computer and other digital technologies and possibilities.

It was King Jammy's, who had then spent a couple of years in Canada before returning to Jamaica during the mid 1980's, with a tune called "Sleng Teng", who was perhaps the leading factor in this "digitalizing of Reggae".

The drum computer would eventually bring producers to merge with other musical styles, such as Hip Hop and Rap.

All of these developments are clearly audible in Edi Fitzroy's tune "Give Your Love".

Enjoy!

One Love, Give Thanks,
