Always ahead of the game, Sly leaned on what was then the brand-new Roland TR-808 drum machine to bring the thunder come clap for Dennis Brownโ€™s vibrant anthem โ€œRevolution.โ€ Adapted by Jah Life for Barrington Levy’s โ€œBlack Rosesโ€ and by Jah Screw for Levy’sย  โ€œBroader Than Broadway,โ€ among countless other tracks over the years, this riddim has truly stood the test of time.
