Loopmasters and Loopcloud have announced the recent addition of Digital Dancehall Vol 1 by Renegade Audio.
Coming out of the ’70s into the ’80s, as it always has, music in Jamaica was looking for that fresh new sound, fresh beat, and style to get the crowds excited. It was within just a few years that music would go from classic ’70s roots to a revolutionary new style and sound when the Casio MT-40 was first used to create the monster hit “Sleng Teng” (Prince Jammy, Noel Davey & Wayne Smith) – once unleashed, the genie would never be put back into the bottle and digital dancehall was here to stay.
The impact of this seemingly small piece of gear, the Casio MT-40, and the extraordinary way in which Prince Jammy, Noel Davey, and the late Wayne Smith explored and conquered it would forever change the musical landscape of reggae and go on to influence all manner of future genres and artists for decades – still going strong to this day!
Inside this pack, you’ll find classic ’80s dancehall drum grooves, vintage synths & key skanks, riffs and one-shots, along with a bonus set of 12-bit lo-fi processed loops for that true classic sound that had analogue noise and digital bits creating a vibrant new sound. Dive in and rediscover the ear that defined a generation with Digital Dancehall Vol 1.
