In Focus: The Techniques

Kingston, 25.06.20

Focus on The Techniques, Winston Riley

Formed initially in 1962 by Winston Riley and a group of youth club friends, The Techniques were first recorded by club owner and future prime minister Edward Seaga. As ska slowed to rocksteady and morphed to reggae, and Jamaican music booned in popularity across the world towards the 1970s, Riley remained the one permanent member of The Techniques, honing his production craft and creating hits that would break the US and UK charts. He created music tirelessly, well into the 21st Century until his passing in 2012.

Enjoy an hour of some of Jamaica's best music from a reggae polymath on this In Focus.
