We love to explore the instrumental world and are striving to become more knowledgeable authority on raw instrumentals, riddims or dub plates. How do you describe a rhythm in lay terms with little formal musical training? We will explore that one later... Let's just say for now... "There is something about certain hits that everyone feels. Whether it is Tony Matterhorn ‘Dutty wine’ or ‘Busta Rhymes’ touch it that moves everybody."

The underground feel it... the youths in the street feel it but wait! The song is also tearing through the burbs and maybe world-wide. This is the essence of what we are attempting to capture here.

Here is a small synopsis of how the origins of dancehall reggae music share some similarities with that of hip hop music:

Dancehall djs created up an intriguing and unique situation when multiple artists touch the same riddim. This similar to hip hop freestyling and gives a live and raw feel to many old version records. I have heard an older man call this New York style but it’s really Jamaican dancehall style. I guess that my good man was not around when all the teenagers and young adults stood around on a line waiting to ‘chat’ over the same tune - but it's time for everybody to know this. is your spot for rap instrumentals & Jamaican music riddim culture, and we try to get into the nitty gritty of how a strong instrumental affects a track.

Here comes a few more self-righteous trinkets about rap instrumentals & Jamaican music riddim culture...

1. We are electronic and proud and will proclaim it loud. We all may not know how to play every instrument but we can program a beat that sounds great to the ears. (Electronic Studio Elements)

2. We have heard that sampling is thievery well I’ll ask if they have heard a Tribe called quest electric relaxation and how it sounds compared to the original sample? (DJ Based Cultures)

3. We are sonic musicians and we are here to play. We love to experience the lifestyle and the people but it is the music which is first and foremost most important to us. (No gossip or politricin')

4. Music captures a moment in time (reality) or a moment in fiction (imagination/subconcious reality). A piece of creative work that captures a moment in time is our definition of art.
