Kingston Signals | Noel Davey & the Casio MT-40: The Sleng Teng

Classic stuff from Peter Dean Rickards http://www.afflictedyard.com/ @pd_rickards

This is a video of Noel Davey – the guy who switched up a pattern on the Casio MT-40 keyboard to create the the first fully computerised riddim in Jamaican music: the ‘Sleng Teng.’ The clip was filmed in 2001 at Noel Davey’s home in Waterhouse, Jamaica for the pioneering web program Kingston Signals.
