What Is Dancehall Music?

Dancehall Music (also known as "Bashment") is a genre of Jamaican popular music that originated in the late 1960s to early 1970s.  Initially, dancehall was a more sparse version of reggae than the roots style, which had dominated much of the 1970s. 

In the mid-1980s, digital instrumentation became more prevalent, changing the sound considerably, with digital dancehall (or "ragga") becoming increasingly characterized by faster rhythms.

This era saw the rise of dancehall music, sound system, sound clash and street parties.  But this was also the era when some megastar rose to fame across the globe.

The 1990s dancehall riddims are consider to be best years for dancehall music. Most of the riddims are classified as gold and are often remake in the 2000s.

The year 2012 saw a number of chart-topping dancehall and reggae music's singles and riddims also known as juggling.

What is Reggae Music?

Bob Marley

Reggae Music is a genre of music which originated on the island of Jamaica in the late 1960s to early 1970s.

How can you differentiate reggae from another genre of music? It is instantly recognizable from the counterpoint between the bass and drum downbeat, and the offbeat rhythm section.

Founding Father Of Reggae Music - The origin of the word "reggae" is open to debate. The foundation of Jamaica's music was laid in the 1960s. These were also the early days of ska and Rocksteady.

Many people considered Bob Marley to be exclusively responsible for the popularity of reggae worldwide, but many other artists such as Jimmy Cliff, Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh, were integral to the spread of the genre.
