The Sleng Teng Story by Noel Davey

DJ 745 sat down for World A reggae with Noel Davey to reveal the real story behind who created the infamous ‘Sleng Teng’ riddim which gave Wayne Smith a major digital hit single with ‘Under Mi Sleng Teng’ back in 1985 and has spurred countless ‘versions’ of this riddim over the last 31 years-so many versions have been created that Sleng Teng is among the most versioned (rerecorded) of Jamaican riddims, listing around 380 versions.
