It’s safe to assume that producers and deejays will still be re-cutting and voicing Sleng Teng in 2085. King Jammy’s game-changing 1985 digital dancehall riddim, as primal and basic as it is, is still current nearly 30 years later. Following Major Lazer’s relick of Sleng Teng on “Fruit Juice” from Snoop Lion’s Reincarnated, Jahdan Blakkamoore (who co-wrote much of Reincarnated) has teamed with fellow Brooklynites Tour de Force for “Pool Party” on a revamped version of the riddim.
