JAMMYS PROFILE
Jammys
King JammysIn 1985, with the appearance of Wayne Smith's 'Sleng Teng', Jamaica's dancehall floor was suddenly thrown into wild and enthusiastic atmosphere. The responsible person to this 'Sleng Teng' rhythm was Lloyd James, who is now regarded as the king of Computerized, Digital reggae music for 80's. He is commonly known as King Jammy and the owner and producer of Jammys label, which is considered as one of the most influential record labels during the 80's.

He grew up in Waterhouse area of downtown Kingston and there he found his interests in sound system from his early age. Soon he became fascinated with electrical engineering and started to build own sound system. His profound knowledge and skills were well recognized enough to attract many local sounds who did not own their sound system. Those people even asked Jammy to build sound system equipment. In that way, he gained the reputation with his gifted talent and people did praise him by calling him "Prince Jammy" in his community.

In the early 70's, he persuaded his musical career as an engineer in Canada for a few years but soon he retuned to Jamaica, Waterhouse to set up his own studio at home. At this time, the Dub Master, King Tubby's number one engineer Phillip Smart decided to work in New York and Jammy replaced him to work as a King Tubby's apprentice for Tubby's Studio where he output some dub mixings with the acquired fine King Tubby style. By 1977, he almost exclusively made Dub at Tubby's Studio for musical giants like King Tubby, Bunny Lee, Augustus Pablo and Yabby You.

After gaining the reputation for his own sound system and his studio works, he established his King Jammys label to release his own productions in the late 70's. He produced Black Uhuru's debut album [Natural Mystic] in 1978. And singles 'Pouchie Lou', 'One In A Million' were sung by upcoming artist, Half Pint with Chinna Smith lead High Times Band. As well as Junior Reid, who made debut recording by the age of 13, was also at Jammys to develop and cultivate his rough vocal skills and there he released his early singles such as 'Higgler Move' and 'Boom Shack A Lack'. Other songs like 'Water Pumping' by Johnny Osbourne, 'Give The People' by Sugar Minott and 'They Fight I'by Dennis Brown are also now considered as classic foundations of the 80's dancehall.

1985 Feb 23rd, people at were about witness a historical sound clash of Prince Jammy versus Black Scorpio at Waltham Park Road. When Jammy droped Wayne Smith's '(Under Me)Sleng Teng', people danced madly to this new groove, which they never heard or experienced of before. This song became a massive hit among the Jammys 80's catalogue and certainly, this 'Sleng Teng' was the first Digital reggae rhythm while band/instrumental approach to the rhythm was usual at this time. It is said that it was created unintentionally by Wayne Smith and Noel Baily while they were playing a phrase of Eddie Cochran's classic rockabilly song 'Something Else' with their new Casio keyboard. Later, the rhythm was taken to Jammys Studio where Tony Asher paced down its tempo and arranged perfectly to come out as a dancehall rhythm.

Not only 'Sleng Teng' has suggested a new form of dancehall, but also encouraged the development of the Computerized reggae. After the legendary clash, many producers found its broad possibilities and a new way to produce rhythms and so they all try to produce Computerized reggae by abandoning very costing old production process. In results, many of Computerized reggae rhythms were produced and swept through the island like a storm.
