The “Sleng Teng” riddim revolutionized reggae music in the mid-1980s, and has spawned hundreds of versions in the decades since then. Less well known is the story of how the distinctive bassline originated in a preset sample included on a Casio electronic keyboard and the work of a young developer fresh out of college.
🎹
Okuda joined the company three months later, as a new hire straight out of music college. As soon as she completed her initial training, she was set to work on preset backing tracks for the MT-40.
🎹
What became the Sleng Teng riddim was originally intended as a “rock” rhythm. Why did this rock beat become so popular with Jamaican musicians? Okuda says: “In those days, my head was full of reggae. Even when I was trying to come up with a rock beat, I think it just naturally came out as something that would work in reggae as well.”
🎹
There were all kinds of constraints in terms of the types of sounds and number of notes that could be used. The preset patterns could only use drum and bass sounds, and they were limited to a length of two bars. These limitations meant programmers could not add much variety to the drum sound, and the main focus became the construction of the bass line.
🎹
Among music fans, there is a widespread belief that the Sleng Teng bassline was derived from Eddie Cochran’s “Something Else” or a song by the S*x Pistols, but Okuda denies having had any particular recording in mind. “I did use to listen to a lot of British rock, so I’m sure there must have been songs that influenced me. But really, the bassline was something I came up with myself. It wasn’t based on any other tune.”
🎹
It was when she read the August 1986 edition of Japan’s Music Magazine that she came across an article with the title “The Sleng Teng Flood,” describing how the Casiotone preset rhythm was inspiring a slew of new songs. As she read on, and saw the preset described in the piece, Okuda learned for the first time that the “rock” bassline she had written for the Casiotone keyboard had become a sensation around the world.
