Reggae In the Age of the Internet

Everyone knows that reggae is best appreciated loud through a sound system with a stomach shuddering bass. This is not what one normally associates with music heard through the internet – the speakers on most laptops are not going to do justice to King Tubby‘s dubs or Prince Far I‘s vocals. However, the internet has brought lots of good things for the world of reggae and Jamaican music.

In 2010, a young Jamaican entrepreneur and computer programmer created a new reggae/dancehall computer game which was reported in The Gleaner. Alex Morrisey, who previously created the famous website jamaicanmusic.com, called the game Songwrita and hopes it will be played by fans all around the world. His earlier website is a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to know about Jamaican music.

The idea behind the game is that you have to catch various song lyrics as they fall from the sky while you name the artiste – it also links in to iTunes too, so you can buy the music you like. Morrisey told The Gleaner that “I am delighted to have launched this game because dancehall and reggae music is an international entertainment staple that influences so many cultures around the world – Songwrita will definitely help to bring popularity to upcoming artistes and further establish the strength of our music around the globe – something that we are all proud of.”

This wouldn’t be the first time music has inspired a computer game. Music is found in everything from corporate blockbusters like the Grand Theft Auto games, which include lots of great tunes, to smaller games, like pocketfruity.com and Kerrang Radio‘s collaboration on Stairway to 7.

Other internet entrepreneurs have looked to Facebook and other social media for inspiration rather than games. The website muzikspace.com is a Caribbean online community where people can meet other music fans and share music, images and videos. An interesting project that is currently seeking funding on the crowd funding website Kickstarter is Trendy Reggae. This is a social utility for reggae and dancehall music fans to discover new music and gigs. The app was created by Tarique Smith (based out of New York) and Calvin Brown (based in Kingston) and you can help funding it until the end of Monday May 12th 2014. Another good reggae community site is reggaelution.com, so check that out too.

The Legendary Satta Massagana Riddim Mix

4

This mix features the the Satta riddim, short for Satta MassaganaSatta Massagana is a roots reggae album released by The Abyssinians officially in 1976. It is widely considered The Abyssinians’ crowning achievement and a classic roots reggae album. The title track “Satta Massagana” was a huge hit and has been versioned numerous times by both The Abyssinians and other artists since. It has even been adopted by some Rastafarian groups as a hymn used during services. The song, which translates from the Amharic language as “He Gave Praise”, was originally recorded for Studio One in 1969, but the label’s owner, Clement “Coxsone” Dodd declined to release it.

#ReggaeLover Episode 3

Also featured in this episode is Title Riddim which was released in 1988.  The late, great singer Wayne Smith (yes he sang more than just Sleng Teng) delivers the blessing with “Jah Is Our Light” before the Soundbwoy Killing tunes start to flow.  Even if you don’t know the artists singing at this point it matters not because the vibes are ever-present and the mixes come smoothly and quickly enough to hopefully put you in trance.

Episode 3 ventures away from the more commercially popular and hit songs mixed in the first 2 Reggae Lover shows and the riddim driven nature of this mix also lends a different type of vibe. Check the playlist and leave a comment below.
