The Poco Man Jam Riddim

The Poco Man Jam Riddim was created in 1989 by Steely & Clevie. The biggest hit on the original riddim was “Poco Man Jam” by Gregory Peck.

The riddim had some slight reworks in the next couple of years. In 1990 for example, Red Dragon released “Cu-Kun-Kun“. 1991 saw the release of “Trailer Load A Girls” by Shabba Ranks and “Nuff Man A Dead” by Super Cat. The most recent update to the Poco Man Jam Riddim is a 2014 remake by Penthouse.

Another version of the riddim would come to be known as the Dem Bow Riddim, most well-known for Shabba Ranks’ 1990 hit “Dem Bow“. The origins of the Reggaeton music genre can be traced back to the Dem Bow Riddim. In 1990 and 1991 a lot of Spanish covers of Shabba Ranks’ Dem Bow were made by artists like Nando Boom, El General and Killer Ranks. It is estimated that more than 80% of all Reggaeton music contains elements of the Dem Bow Riddim.
