In the eighties, old and new styles alike get developed in Jamaica. Ragga evolves and electronic production tools enter the studios, helping to establish the digital dancehall era. 37 minutes with Bunny Lie Lie, Charlie Chaplin, Don Carlos, Johnny Clarke, and others.
The Jukebox gets expanded with improvised Baroque chamber music that’s rooted in rock, the inner voyage of a miserable soul, notions of the uncanny, and a forward thinking Jamaican collective. 42 minutes with tunes by Don Cherry, Gazelle Twin, Mariah, Sentimentale Jugend, and others – produced between 1969 and 2021.
The Jukebox series starts with European ideas about reggae, some stoic drumming, a reflection on alienation, and a track capturing the atmosphere in Tokyo during the early eighties. 54 minutes with works by Alec Empire, Jun Togawa Unit, Pink Industry, The Red Krayola, and others – made between 1968 and 2008.
