Legendary producer and engineer Prince Jammy is hands down one of the most pivotal figures in the history of reggae music. It is impossible to overstate his contribution to the art form, because, as the top producer throughout the digital era, he altered the sound of reggae without ever losing touch with its foundation – the sound system.
Jammy's constant involvement with the grassroots side of the business gave him a keen sense of what was currently happening in reggae, and also allowed him to anticipate new trends. 1982's groovy Prince Jammy Destroys The Invaders was recorded with the steadfast Roots Radics Band and released the same year he was working with Black Uhuru and fellow producer Scientist and their influence here is readily apparent with its universal space themes.
