Developed around 1979 and characterized by more upbeat "riddims" than Roots Reggae, with DJs "toasting" (i.e. rapping) over danceable rhythms. Dancehall's often "slack" or rude lyrics kept it off the airwaves initially. Later Dancehall varieties included "conscious" singers who have a spiritual lyrical focus, and a more hard-core version with links to Hip-Hop and Rap. This is the Reggae you hear at dance clubs. --bahilman27
