To celebrate Jamaica's 50 years of independence (1962-2012) we have put together a set of releases that cover the musical styles that reggae mutated into throughout its history: SKA, rocksteady, roots reggae, dub, DJ style, and dancehall. So Listen Up! and enjoy ! Welcome to the dancehall sound from Jamaica. The sound that grew out of the dances in Jamaica around the beginning of the 1980's. The musical style again slowed the reggae beat down to give an uncluttered, sparse backdrop, allowing the singers and DJ's more space to express themselves. Dancehall has never stopped, but it turned to a digital beat around the mid-1980's. So Listen Up! to some early dancehall classics that set the style for the years that followed.
