Cultural Vibes - Radio Reggae show - Tribute to / Hommage à Winston Techniques Riley - Part 1 : The Early Years...

Winston "Techniques" Riley nous a quitté ce 12 janvier dernier, aprés plus d'un mois de comma suite à une blessure par balle à la tête... Cela faisait plusieurs années qu'il était régulièrement victime d'agression et au mois d'aout 2011 déjà il s'était déjà pris une balle dans la jambe, mais ces jours n'avaient pas été mis en danger. Homme intègre, droit et réservé selon le témoignage de son fils, il n'a jamais voulu mettre au courant ses proches de ce qui se tramait, et on en saura malheureusement surement jamais plus...

Le fait est que c'est un grand Homme du Reggae Music qui nous a quitté ce 12 janvier, fondateur en 1962 du groupe Techniques puis quelques années plus tard du label du même nom, sur lesquels seront révélés nombre de futures stars internationales et qui produira ce qui deviendra l'un des, si ce n'est Le, Riddim le plus connu dans le monde, le Stalag Riddim...  

 

Rappels succins sur son parcours, tirés de sa page FB, en anglais ds le texte :

 

Winston Riley has a claim to being the most successful reggae producer of all-time. His rhythm, Stalag, was dubbed by reggae artiste Freddie McGreggor as "the wickedest riddim in the world", with 400 known versions.

Born in 1946 in Kingston, Riley's entry into the music arena was at 16 years old in 1962, when he formed The Techniques harmony group, which recorded their first tracks for Coxsone Dodd of Studio One, and then later recorded for 'Duke' Reid. By 1970, Riley had moved from singing to production, producing artistes like Boris Gardner, The Escorts and Johnny Osbourne. Riley set up his own Techniques label in 1970 and scored an international smash with Dave & Ansel Collins Double Barrel and then Monkey Spanner.

Riley remained on the cutting edge introducing the world to slackness, via General Echo's debut album. He later went on to record seminal singles and albums for the likes of General Echo, Sister Nancy, Frankie Paul, Sanchez, Buju Banton, Courtney Melody, Super Cat and Red Dragon. From veterans like Gregory Isaacs to Tiger and Pliers, Riley worked with the best, and made them shine even brighter. More than 40 years after he started in the reggae music business, Riley is currently building a studio/museum at Techniques records to remember the late greats.
