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, sparce backdrop, allowing
the singers and DJ’s more space to express themselves. Dancehall has never
stopped but 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….
