Musical Convergence

Under the category of “whatever happened to…”

In the early 90’s music combined styles from all over: bhangra, reggae, rave etc. Proponents of this included Apache Indian, SL2 and probably loads of others that I don’t know about. I just wonder what happened to the whole movement, on account of “On a Ragga Trip” and “Boom Shack-A-Lack” were great songs (in fact Boom Shack-A-Lack makes a great wake up ring tone)

Or maybe it just grew up, after all Island Records who were one of the pioneers in moving reggae into global consciousness are now part of Def Jam who were influential in making rap into the dominant sound of today.
