Style of reggae music that evolved from "raggamuffin" music in the mid-1980s. Dancehall is faster than typical reggae, and features strident vocals alongside drum machine-based production styles. In the 1990s, there was considerable crossover between gangsta-rappers and Jamaican dancehall singers and producers.
