Wayne Smith, who died earlier this week aged only 48, is only really known for one record - but what a record. As well as being excellent in its own right, when "Under Mi Sleng Teng" came out in 1985 was the first time a digital rhythm track was used in Jamaica. As such it was hugely influential in the development of dancehall - not always for the better it must be said - and the "riddim" itself has been used many, many times. Here are a few examples.
"Cowboy Style" - Josey Wales
"Call The Police" - John Wayne
"Every Posse" - Tonto Irie
"Mr. Pleasure" - Mad Cobra
To prove that there were other records as well, here is something different from Wayne.
"Time Is A Moment In Space" - Wayne Smith
And if you are wondering why that sounds strangely familiar, it's because it is a cover version of "A Woman In Love" by Barbara Streisand. Oddly there does not seem to be a single decent video of her singing it, so you'll have to settle for this lady from the Greek version of "Stars In Their Eyes".
