Sleng Teng

Much has been said about this riddim and it's original version by Wayne Smith. Digital music had been made in Jamaica for a while, but it didn't really getaccepted until Sleng Teng hit the charts. Check Prince Jazzbo productions from early eighties for pre Sleng Teng digi. (Horace Ferguson's Sensi Addictis a prime example). But Sleng Teng was the first "digi" riddim that hit big and it changed not only the soundbut the whole business. Studiotime and expensive musicians was no longerneeded to score big. This made way for a whole new generation of producers, musicians and performers.

What about Pampidoo's 'New body rock' and Dave Barker's 'Run for cover' both on Striker Lee. Burro also did a new one called 'Ghetto living'

Greatest riddim of all time.Too may tunes on this to remeber, but standouts for me are Budy Bye by Johnny Osbourne and call the Police by John Wayne.

Bounty Killer's "Lodge" is the greatest Sleng Teng song.

Wayne Smith was the one who programmed it.

Comment by: Dre Date: 2006-08-19

The riddim was built at King Jammy's studio, it is a pattern built into the Casio MT-40 home keyboard!!!

Comment by: Date: 2006-07-03

I like the tune, but did you lot know how this riddim was created?

Forgotton who it was, but some guy was the first in JA with a synthesizer. He went to all the effort of running one of the keyboard's demos and recording it, and the Sleng Teng riddim was created!
