Penthouse Flashback Series: “Swing Easy Riddim”
The “Swing Easy Riddim” is another Reggae riddim that can be added to the list of classic riddims that one can recognize from the first measures.
This riddim has been remade, and re-interpreted many times since Coxsone produced the song “Swing Easy,” made famous by The Soul Vendors in 1967.
All the existing versions of this riddim do not include that characteristic horn section that makes you feel like rocking. But even without it, one can tell it’s the “Swing Easy” because of its swinging bass line.
