Is Jamaica's Dancehall Music Dying or There's Hope

So the dancehall music business in Jamaica seems to be at a cross road. With the revival of reggae music thru artists like Chronixx, Jesse Royal and Kabaka Pyramid just to name a few.

Most promoters are now booking the dancehall artists who ruled in the 1990s.

Reggae Sumfest 2014 top performers were all artists from the 1990s. Bounty Killer, Beenie Man, Mr Vegas, Busy Signal, Freddie McGregor, Aidonia and . Except for I Octane who is a much younger artiste.

Other 90s artists who are heavily booked are Baby Cham, Anthony B, Lady Saw and Sizzla.

A prominent producer said the reason why the new crop of dancehall artists aren't reaching anywhere is because they are not doing timeless music.

He also said that everyone who now have a laptop/PC and can also build a beat now consider them self to be a producer.

I can call the name of a few artists who are really knocking hard on the door. These are Kalado, J Capri, Tiana, Alkaline, Gage, Ryme Minista, Spice and Jahmiel.

Some industry players are now saying that dancehall music is slowly dying, but I think the problem is the players need to produce more quality material.
