Among the rhythms produced in the 80's dancehall scene, the 'Sleng Teng' by King Jammy and Firehouse produced 'Tempo' are the most respected ones, however, no one can forget the 'Stalag' rhythm by Techniques' Winston Riley. King Jammy reproduced this 'Stalag' rhythm with Sly & Robbie and as a result, they created a shadier atmosphere in comparison to the original Techniques' version. This is certainly another Jammys anthem!
