Welcome to the SKA BEAT!. The sound that came from Jamaica between 1961-67. Based on the American RnB and Doo-Wop records that Sound Systems in Kingston Town used to play. The American records style started to mellow out while the Jamaican preferred a more upbeat sound.. So to meet this demand the Sound System bosses became record producers to cater for this demand. Sir Coxonne and Duke Reid lead the way by putting the top musicians on the Island in the studio to make this Ska Sound!! Here for your enjoyment is a selection of the some of the top tunes that made Ska so great… We hope you enjoy the best….
