Ska was the name given to the music that came out of Jamaica between 1961/66. Based on the American R&B and Doo Wop records that the Sound Systems in Kingston Town used to play. But the American records style started to mellow out while the Jamaicans preferred a more upbeat sound. So the Sound System bosses became record producers to cater for this demand. Sir Coxonne Dodd and Duke Reid led the way putting the top musicians on the island in the studio to make music,its subtle twist that had an emphasis placed on the offbeat made the music unmistakably Jamaican.

W.I.R.L Records (West India Records Limited) was set up by the Jamaican politician Edward Seaga in the late 1950s. He had supervised the recording of an album of Ethnic Jamaican music and needed an outlet for its eventual release.In 1962 the year of Jamaican Independence, Seaga became a member of Parliament, representing the Jamaican Labour Party and then decided to sell the label to Bryon Lee, the sale led to a name change from W.I.R.L to Dynamic Sounds.
