More on the genre Rocksteady: 

Rocksteady is a music genre that originated in Jamaica during the late 1960s, after SKA and before REGGAE. Rocksteady and the early reggae that followed, was built around the “one drop” drum beat, characterized by a heavy accent on the second and fourth beat of every bar, played by the bass drum and the snare together.  The bass line eventually became one of the most recognizable characteristics of Jamaican music.

Despite its short lifespan, rocksteady’s influence is great as most of the reggae artists started out in Rocksteady and/or SKA.  Many reggae songs became focused less on romance and more on black consciousness, politics and protest. The release of the film “The Harder They Come” and the rise of Jamaican superstar Bob Marley brought reggae to an international level that rocksteady never reached.

Although rocksteady was a short-lived phase of Jamaican popular music (about 2 years), it was hugely influential on reggae, dub and dancehall. Many bass lines originally created for rocksteady songs continue to be used in contemporary Jamaican music, such as the rhythm from “Never Let You Go” by Slim Smith (sometimes known as the Answer rhythm) and the Hi-Fashion rhythm from “Bobby Babylon” by Freddie McGregor.

Kahlil Wonda and Reggae Lover present Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry

Lee 'Scratch' PerryWelcome to Episode 20 of the Reggae Lover Podcast, my first “dubwise” edition. This mix was specially requested by Ras Jamal in Savannah, Georgia and features the musical productions and performances of Lee “Scratch” Perry exclusively.  

One of the pioneers in the development of dub music and remixing in addition to numerous other innovations in production, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry truly paved the way for the EDM, Hip-Hop, and Reggae movements of today.  Learn more about Perry’s amazing career.  

Show Notes.

We start off in the 60 – 70 BPM range with The Upsetters‘ Curly Dub and move into a couple different dub versions of Satisfy My Soul featuring Bob Marley and The Wailers.  The Upsetters’ Super Ape is up next, leading into a “Vibrate On” medley.  Augustus Pablo, Max Romeo, Hugo Blackwood and Dr. Alimantado are featured on the riddim alongside Perry and The Upsetters.  A cool blend transitions from there into Bob Marley dub once again with “Live,” a Lively Up Yourself dub version and then a Screw Face dub version entitled “Face Man.”

Junior Murvin can then be heard singing “Roots Train,” followed by his massive hit tune “Police And Thieves.”  I selected 3 tracks from Perry’s “Arkology” box set on the same riddim.  The voices of Glen DaCosta and Jah Lion are featured in this set along with some wicked Saxophone and the masterful instrumentation of Lee Perry dubbing out on the board.

For the next few tracks I go into the Jungle Dub album, my favorite album of Perry’s work.  The very heavy-weight Super Ape album, Ras Jamal’s highest rated Scratch Perry album is also a focal point of this mix.  Other noteable selections served up are “Bad Walking” with Tommy McCook and “I Chase The Devil/Croaking Lizard” with Max Romeo and Prince Jazzbo.

Please email me (reggaeloverpodcast@gmail.com) if you want the full tracklist. My wish is that listeners will hear this mix and go looking for Lee Perry’s music to purchase.  Dub music should be a part of every reggae lover’s music collection.

New Reggae Music: MS PAIGE – ‘RISE UP’

Ms Paige has teamed up once more with Enos Peniston (a.k.a. Mandrike) of COZMIKNATION PRODUCTION to share with you her first 2014 release.  In celebration of what-would-have-been Bob Marley’s 69th birthday, Ms Paige presents a positive message through the lyrics of this conscious reggae track entitled RISE UP.     Written and performed by Ms Paige, RISE UP is featured on the Wreckless Riddim.     “With all of the terrible things that generations before us had to endure, it blows my mind that the ignorance of racism still lives today. The colour of one's skin does NOT define whether or not they should be held in higher regard than another. It is time to rise above stereotypes, rise above hate, RISE UP!”  ~ Ms Paige
