Reggae is a music genre that originated in Jamaica in the late 1960s. Reggae evolved out of Ska and Rocksteady and is recognizable from the counterpoint between the bass and drum downbeat and the offbeat rhythm section. Roots reggae dominated much of the 1970s and was followed by Dancehall. Themes of social injustice and religion, predominant in Roots, were overtaken by lyrics about dancing, violence and sexuality. Dub is a genre of electronic music that grew out of reggae in the 1960s and consists predominantly of instrumental remixes of existing recordings.
Reggae is irresistible - whether it makes you want to dance or relax - it's all about the rhythm. And, when Island Records brought the world Bob Marley, we were hooked! But there's more to reggae than Marley - from lover's rock through dub, roots and dancehall, whether it's talking about love, politics or spirituality, Reggae has something serious to say.
