Reggae Beat


Okay, the music on this Indonesian reggae record might not be all that good, but hey, how often do you stumble into Indonesian reggae? The accompanying track, called Reggae Beat, is actually quite charming. Especially the flute parts are rather exotic, with a gamelan scale that blends in nicely. The organ sounds pretty spaced out too. Artist unknown by the way.

  • I’ve seen others request additional postings to no avail, but I wish you’d make an exception and post a little bit more from REGGAE BEAT… the track you shared was just… beautiful.

  • This track is not very typical for this record… The rest is more restaurant stuff with the occasional weak groove (Work Song). I’ll be away from home for quite some time so I can’t record additional tracks anyway. Glad you like this one though (so do I)!

  • Not that it means anything, but while I sat here falling in love with this tune, we lost Desmond Dekker & Indonesia got hit with a massive quake.
    Anyway, I appreciate your sharing such fine music all the time.

  • Having lived in Indonesia for a few years in the Nineties, I can report not only that reggae is massive there, what with people relating big-time to Marley and his mission to liberate the masses from post-colonial mental slavery, but also that there are endless local variants – particularly Dangdut Reggae, where Dangdut is local Arabic-influenced bar-room music played in dives of ill-repute, and the ‘reggae’ angle often just seems to mean a certain kind of fairly irritating beat added on top.

  • @JakartaJive, thanks for the info. In my homeland Holland there are, for obvious but not flattering reasons, many Indonesian records to be found. It’s mainly Krontjong-pop, gamelan and the occasional rock record. Maybe Dangdut is more music from the age of the cassette? This record is early seventees.

  • hmmm i don’t think dangdut is from the age of cassettes, as the previous post said, i just think that it’s largely pirated hence why the CDs don’t do very well on sale over there, and also perhaps simply alot of Indonesians in Holland don’t like dangdut? Maybe they arrived in Holland at a time when dangdut wasn’t big yet? My dad left Indonesia in the late 60’s, and as a result, he never got to hear much dangdut, and therefore isn’t a fan of it now.

  • yeh Dangdut’s from the 70’s so it wouldn’t have arrived in Holland on time
