According to veteran selector, DJ Squeeze, dancehall music has become porn and the culprits behind the transformation are Vybz Kartel and Alkaline.

It has gotten so bad the selector says that he now refers to the genre as “porn-hall” music.
Not only have Vybz Kartel and Alkaline flood dancehall with xxx-rated music but Squeeze also blames them for setting the precedent for young acts creating sexually explicit music.

“Vybz Kartel and Alkaline have cut a trend that is different in our musical expression, and it has now affected the whole Jamaican music landscape, and it is not necessarily for the most positive results,” he told 18 Karat Reggae.
Squeeze said dancehall’s best years were between the ’80s and early 2000s with artistes like Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Admiral Bailey, Sizzla, Capleton and Cutty Ranks.

While Squeeze readily admits that dancehall greats like Shabba Ranks, Yellowman and General Echo also sung slack songs, he says they did it with class.

“If you are going to go edgy do it with class … draw inspiration from songs like Salt Fish and Wrenking Meat. They are different from blatantly saying Tek Buddy Gyal. It takes creative writing to express oneself. We want to be able to read through the lines like the days we used words like ‘soldering’,” he said.

“You might call me obsolete, but porn-hall is not dancehall,” he said. “It’s ‘porn-hall’ and ‘shock-hall’ because it shocks 90 per cent of the public.”

The DJ is requesting that recording artistes revisit the blueprint set by veterans of Jamaican music and apply their strategy to improve the state of the music.

“I am not stopping the youngsters from expressing themselves but let us find a medium for improvement,” he said.
