Reggae Specialty Labels Music

One of the first truly international music styles, Reggae has its origins in the Ska and Rocksteady studios of Kingston, Jamaica. Some of the first Reggae studios (Black Ark) later went on to create new genres, including Dub, Ragga, and even the prototype for American Hip Hop. The most famous proponents of Reggae are the Marley family (Bob and Ziggy), whose bands toured the world and produced some of the best selling singles and albums of all time. The first producer of Bob Marley and the Wailers was Lee "Scratch" Perry, legendary father of Dub (originally meaning the B-side of a record, with drum breaks and dropouts for MCs to shout out over).
