The most effective way to reissue Jamaican music is by focusing on its producers. Such is the case with Winston Riley, whose importance to dancehall music is nothing less than crucial. It was Riley who produced the famed “Double Barrel” and “Stalag” rhythms. He was the epicenter of dancehall’s emergence in the ’80s, launching the careers of Pliers, Admiral Tibet, Super Cat, Cutty Ranks and Buju Banton, to name a few. Dancehall Techniques showcases the early works of those artists supported by the crisp digital production that made them famous.
