Slim Smith & The Uniques recorded the tune “I’ll Never Let You Go” at Studio One studios in 1967. Selectors, deejays and backing bands have enjoyed playing the instrumental ever since.
Also known as the Never Let Go, this riddim has been remade many times during the past decades. A staple in dancehall music, songs on the Answer riddim still get spun nightly by many DJs and Sound Systems.
