Dancehall is a genre of Jamaican popular music that originated in the late s. Key elements of dancehall music include its extensive use of Jamaican Patois rather than Jamaican standard English and a focus on the track instrumentals or " riddims ". Dancehall saw initial mainstream success in Jamaica in the s, and by the s, it became increasingly popular in Jamaican diaspora communities.DJ Kenny Bruk Out Dancehall Mix November 2013, Vybz Kartel, Mavado
In the s, dancehall experienced worldwide mainstream success, and by the s, it began to heavily influence the work of established Western artists and producers, which has helped to further bring the genre into the Western music mainstream. Dancehall is named after Jamaican dance halls in which popular Jamaican recordings were played by local sound systems. They began in the late s among people from the inner city of Kingstonwho were not able to participate in dances uptown.
Musically, older rhythms from the late s were recycled, with Sugar Minott credited as the originator of this trend when he voiced new lyrics over old Studio One rhythms between sessions at the studio, where he was working as a session musician.
Yellowman, one of the most successful early dancehall artists, became the first Jamaican deejay to be signed to a major American record label, and for a time enjoyed a level of popularity in Jamaica to rival Bob Marley 's peak. Other female dancehall stars include artistes like Diana King and in the late s to the s Ce'cileSpiceMacka Diamond and more. Sound systems and the development of other musical technology heavily influenced dancehall music.
The music needed to "get where the radio didn't reach" because Jamaicans oftentimes were outside without radios. Sound systems allowed people to listen to music without having to buy a radio. Therefore, the dancehall culture grew as the use of technology and sound systems got better. The Jamaican dancehall scene was one created out of creativity and a desire for accessibility, and one that is inseparable from sound system culture.
At the onset of the dancehall scene, sound systems were the only way that some Jamaican audiences might hear the latest songs from popular artist. Through time, it transformed to where the purveyors of the sound systems were the artists themselves and they became whom the people came to see along with their own original sounds. With the extreme volume and low bass frequencies of the sound systems local people might very well feel the vibrations of the sounds before they could even hear them, though the sound itself did travel for miles.
Jamaica was one of the first cultures to pioneer the concept of remixing. As a result, production level and sound system quality were critical to Jamaica's budding music industry.
Since many locals couldn't afford sound systems in their home, listening to one at a dance party or at a festival was their entry into audible bliss. The success of music wasn't just in the hands of one person anymore, it was a factor of the DJ, speaking poetic words to the audience, the Selector, harmonizing beats in an aesthetically pleasing way, and the Sound Engineer, wiring the sound systems to handle deeper and louder bass tones.
Music became a factor of many elements and the physicality of that sound was a strategic puzzle left for musicians to solve.

Palmer may be locked up but Vybz Kartel is still very much at large. Debate continues to rage as to how these tracks are actually getting out from behind bars. Could dancehall be the EDM of ?
Well, that was Demarco. Until this year. Plus there was the sometimes controversial, always hilarious Talk Yuh Mind online series. Yet the one gyal representing more than most on the bashment scene is Spice. But she really took things up in notch in with Like A Man. In a cross-dressing three minutes of dancehall perfection she took down the entire old-school institution.

No matter what they say about the male-dominated culture, women will always run bashment. The year-old enfant terrible of dancehall represents a new generation of Jamaican artists who are more exposed to American celebrity culture. What with all the hullaballoo, it can be easy to forget that Alkaline is an incredibly talented artist. But every successful rave requires a bit of group movement.
This year it was all about the Syvah and Kreech. Do your homework before the NYE rave. A good host always knows their skanks.
