In this classic 1 hour and 16 minute cd I bring you a mix of dub plates and 45’s strictly over King Jammys music. From artists such as Shabba Ranks, Coco Tea, Sanchez, Admiral Bailey and more.

Lloyd James born in 1947 who is also known as Prince Jammy or King Jammy, is a dubmixer and record producer. He began his musical career as a dub master at King Tubby‘s recording studio. His dubs were known for their clear sound and use of effects.

After earning money from building amplifiers and repairing electrical equipment from his mother’s house in Waterhouse in the late 1960s, he started his own sound system. He also built equipment for other local systems. After leaving Jamaica to work in Canada for a few years in the early 1970s, he returned to Kingston in 1976 and set up his own studio at his in-laws’ home in Waterhouse, and released a couple of Yabby You productions. When Phillip Smart left King Tubby‘s team to work in New York City, Jammy replaced him, getting to work with Bunny Lee and Yabby You.

In the late 1970s he began to release his own productions, including the debut album from Black Uhuru in 1977. In the 1980s, he became one of the most influential producers of dancehall music. His biggest hit was 1985’s “Under Me Sleng teng” by Wayne Smith, with an entirely-digital rhythm hook. Many credit this song as being the first “Digital rhythm” in reggae, leading to the modern dancehall era. Jammy’s productions and sound system dominated reggae music for the remainder of the 1980s and into the 1990s. He continues to work as a producer, working with some of today’s top Jamaican artists, including Sizzla.

Flash Back! Dj CurlyLocks and Sizzla’s Benji Bashment March 1998 Jamaica

2009 Article by WCTD

The 1990’s decade was a lean time for “live” artists appearing on sound systems. The use of dub plate specials was taking over in Jamaica and juggling was becoming big business. So instead of the artists working on sets they were recruited by a new breed of “music only” sounds who cut one off specials with the performers, adapting the lyrics to hit songs to boost up the name of their own sound.

In this decade the art of soundclash really came to the fore with all manner of competitions, trophies, and reputations, to be won. The established sounds of the eighties had to adapt or step aside for newcomers like Bodyguard, Bass Odyssey, Addies, Black Cat, Rodigan, Sound Trooper, Mighty Crown and Dj CurlyLocks of Genesis International to name just a few. Veteran sounds like Killamanjaro, Metromedia, Stone Love, King Jammy’s and Saxon managed to successfully make the transition and compete with the best, and to this day the dancehall soundclash business is still growing worldwide.
