Dancehall Reggae Music's Best Era

Dancehall Reggae Music's Best Era - Which era of dancehall Reggae Music would you consider to be the best?

Before for we delve into this issue, here are a few pointers you might not have known.

Reggae Music is the child of Ska Music and Rocksteady Music, while Dancehall Music is the off-spring of Reggae.

This question is open to debate, as some will say that it depends on the era you grew up in.  If you asked a Jamaican the question most will say for the Reggae Music it's the 1980s and Dancehall Music 1990s.

Although reggae music was originated in the 1970s, it wasn't until in the late 1970s to early 1980s that it was officially recognized as a genre of music. 

Reggae Music's legend Bob Marley and Sir Jimmy Cliff have been credited as the artists who introduced Reggae Music to the world.

For us, we think that the Best era for Reggae Music was in the 1980s.

Dancehall Music on the other hand for us is more debatable. This genre was originated in the late 1980s became very popular in the 1990s and ruled Jamaica's airwaves, street parties, nightclubs and other parts of the world until late 2000s.

Dancehall artiste such as Shabba Ranks, Ninja Man, Mad Cobra, Lady Patra, Buju Banton, Heavy D, Super Cat, Bounty Killer, Lady Saw, Capleton, Spragga Benz, Sizzla Kalonji and Beenie Man ruled the 1990s.

The late 2000s saw the rise to fame of Vybz Kartel, Mavado, Busy Signal, Assassin and Alkaline, but most of the music released by these artists are short lived.

In our opinion, the best era of dancehall music was the 1990s.

Why Did we choose these eras?

For Reggae Music, most reggae music produced and released in the 1980s are still being played worldwide today.  Those are what we call classics and timeless music which are still out-selling present day Reggae Music.

The Dancehall music of the 90's are much like reggae of the 80's, most of them today are now classics and are also timeless music.

Internationally you will see promoters promoting retro parties with the tagline "Music from the 1990s". 

Although more music was produced and released in the 2000s, most music insiders concluded that the music from that era lacks substance.
