Dancehall (also dancehall reggae) is a music style based on reggae, which has similarities with hip-hop. Great influence on the Jamaican dancehall development had the so-called toasting, a type of chanting, which became known through artists such as U-Roy.
Singing and toasting is done on bass- and beat-heavy, danceable riddims (instrumentals), which in the dancehall & afrobeat area are usually produced using synthesizers and drum computers and mixed by a selector (corresponds to the DJ in the U.S. and Europe) of a sound system. A chant, usually in patois, is toasted or chanted (chanting) over the riddims. Typically, one verse at a time is rhymed using the same pronunciation of the last syllables in the verse each time. Chanting in dancehall is known as toasting or chatting. It differs from rap in that it is performed not only rhythmically, but also in a vocal tone that can also transition into smaller melodic lines.
Meanwhile there are now many producers around the world who offer free dancehall beats for non-profit use. These free beats are a good option for beginners. On the other hand it is common for serious artists to buy dancehall beats online for-profit use. With the purchase of leasing rights or exclusive rights, it is possible to acquire commercial rights for dancehall beats in order to use them commercially.
To put it differently, with the purchase of a license you can sell your songs online and offline. Furthermore, you can distribute your songs on all online portals such as Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, iTunes, Pandora, Deezer etc.
