PRINCE JAMMY Computerised Dub

Though there are a sprinkling of precedents for computerised rhythms in reggae music, Blood Fire Posse's Every Posse Get Flat and Sugar Minott's Herb Man Hustling both from 1984 spring to mind, and there are examples of very basic drum machines in use going back to experiments by Lee Perry and Family Man Barrett in the mid 70's. When in 1985 Prince Jammy recorded singer Wayne Smith on a simple rhythm built entirely by Tony Asher on a small Casio computerised keyboard and played the results on his sound system, reggae was never the same again. Almost immediately, everything else sounded old-fashioned and stale and within months everything that came out of Jamaica was computerised and Jammy's was crowned the King. Sleng Teng was a real game changer and soon in the UK even roots musicians were enabled to build computer rhythms in their bedrooms which led to the UK roots scene around sound systems like Jah Shaka and Iration Steppas which in turn begat the now worldwide roots and dub sound system scene that still flourishes today. This LP, originally issued in 1986, comprises of ten of Prince Jammy's early computer rhythms, mostly built by the winning team of Steely & Clevie.
