Biography

Lloyd James, (born in Kingston, Jamaica), better known as Prince Jammy or King Jammy, began his career as a protege of dub legend King Tubby.

For the first few years of his career, Jammy almost exclusively made Dub. In the 1980s, he became one of the most influential producers of dancehall music.

His biggest hit was 1985’s “(Under Me) Sleng Teng” by Wayne Smith, with an entirely-digital rhythm hook.

Many credit this song as being the first “Digital rhythm” in reggae, leading to the modern dancehall era.
