Turn it up, slow it down… it’s time to get creative! In this module, we invite you to mix, remix, and experiment. Reggae has highly influenced the development of hip-hop, dub step and rap music just to name a few. By mixing sounds together, Jamaican producers, sound engineers and sound system DJs used their intuition to innovate in their practice. Learn how the unique and fearless recombining of influences of different musical genres led to the creation of other hybrid musical genres. Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser and James Poyser put their creative minds together to present you with Three Hip Hop Moments.
