WALSHY FIRE STATED THAT “JAMAICAN ARTISTS ARE ON THE VERGE OF CREATING A NEW GENRE” IN A RECENT INTERVIEW. THIS CLAIM WARRANTED FURTHER EXPLORATION SO WE WENT IN ON THE NEW MUSIC OF JAMAICA. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Before analyzing today’s music we reviewed the many genres that Jamaica has created. That amazing history includes Mento, Ska, Rock Steady, *Reggae* , Dub, and *Dancehall*. Reggae sub-genres Nyahbingi, lover’s rock, and rub-a-dub are also popular styles. There was a peak in dancehall popularity in the early 2000s followed by a decline in quality reggae. At that time vinyl formats transitioned to the CD. Then CDs went out and digital downloads came in. As a result, DJs started using laptops to play music and consumers turned to personal electronics. This transitional period subsequently led to what we call the *reggae revival*. The current global dancehall and reggae revival movements are creating genre-bending trends. Artists like *Protoje* , Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid, Jesse Royal, Damian Marley, Lila Ike ( https://reggaelover.com/lila-ike-interview/ ) , and *Koffee* are synonymous with such trends. > > Based on our analysis there either is a new emerging genre, or the concept > of genres is simply dead. Distinctions between genres have become blurred > and young audiences around the world are embracing that change.
