Reggae music has become synonymous with clubs around the world, and it has a lot to do with the way it syncs to the environment.
Many other genres are not able to get the mind and body moving like reggae does. This allure is the reason clubs love playing the genre and feel it is one of the best options in the musical world to get people up and dancing.
Here is more on where reggae music comes from and why it has such a huge following in the world of clubs.
Born in Jamaica
It started in the 60s, where artists wanted to create new music that would appeal to everyone and would get them moving. If that was the goal, they hit a goldmine with this genre because people wouldn’t sit down when music of this nature came on.
The 60s led to some great names coming out under this genre, and it hasn’t left the world since.
In fact, the club culture in various parts of the world has started to focus on this genre because it works like a charm in setting the mood.
Solely Made For Dancing
Club culture is all about getting people to come out, attend, and have a very good time while they dance the night away. It is as simple as this, and if that was the goal, it only made sense for reggae music to do the job. There is nothing worse than not getting people to dance, and reggae music filled the gap.
It was able to get things moving in a way other genres weren’t able to.
Plus, there was a certain amount of fatigue in the 60s with other genres, and it was time to go with something new, which is why people adored reggae and still do to this day.
Built on Rhythm
Rhythm is synonymous with reggae music because it keeps things simple while getting people to dance.
The emphasis remains on the cool and calming beat that makes people want to move their hips from side to side. What better way to set a club alight? This is one of those genres that has an innate charm to it that is hard to ignore. You are drawn towards it, and that is why people adore playing it in the clubs.
It works well and has always been a ‘crowd pleaser’.
Increased in Popularity Due To Mass Appeal
One of the things this genre has going for it has to do with the mass appeal. It is only going to resonate when people want to listen to it, and that is something people do want when it comes to clubs. They want to be able to get up and dance, which is why reggae music fits like a glove.
It is built for the environment, and you are going to have a very good time if you visit a club, and this genre is playing in the background.
This is the history of reggae and where it came from when things were being set up in Jamaica. There was a desire for music of this nature, and numerous artists fit the gap because it worked. There were people all over who were willing to dance and have a very good time while this music played around them.
This is the goal of any club, and that is what reggae music can bring into the picture that other options never would.
When I was engaged to my husband, Jamarco, I planned and themed a Reggae style gala and hired a DJ in Hamilton for my wedding. It was a blast and a memory I’ll never forget. His family flew in from Jamaica and they felt right at home.
You will enjoy having this option up your sleeve while figuring things out and that is why clubs and DJ events around the world adore it as a genre.
