Montego Bay, Saint James, Jamaica
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.
