Throwback Thursdays: Skratch Bastid on Beenie Man’s “Memories”

Words by DJ Skratch Bastid
Beenie Man Memories (Stop Live in the Past)

Something slightly different this week on Throwback Thursdays. Toronto turntablist DJ Skratch Bastid traces the roots of Beenie Man’s “Memories” back to soul man Jerry Butler and shows how the Chicago R&B scene of the ’60s and ’70s has had a profound influence on music in Jamaica, and how that same Chicago-inspired reggae has made its way back to the U.S. through some classic samples.
