The Foundation of Reggae - PT1 [Video]
"Reggae is a music genre first developed in Jamaica in the late 1960s. While sometimes used in a broader sense to refer to most types of Jamaican music, the term reggae more properly denotes a particular music style that originated following on the development of ska and rocksteady.
Reggae is most easily recognized by the rhythmic accents on the off-beat, usually played by guitar or piano (or both), known as the skank"

RiddimWILD has discovered that majority of the Modern Recording and DJing practices are stemming from the Tree that is Reggae.
In the Foundation of Reggae series we will look at where the music is coming from, what it has done, to where it is now. The following video shows that if it weren't for influence of Reggae Music, we wouldn't be able to have Mobile DJs as we have them today.
Reggae is the Truth...
Did you know that it is Rumored that Lee Scratch Perry (Bob Marley's Producer and world renown madman) is the inventor of Reggae Music???
