Reggaeton Radio Stations

Reggaeton is a music genre which roots lie in latin american and caribbean music. It originated in the early 1990s and went on to gain widespread mainstream exposure in 2004. Reggaeton draws upon various musical influences and is a mixture of jamaican dancehall, caribbean soca and latin american genres such as salsa, latin american hip hop and electronica. Reggaeton is defined by its own particular beat and rhythm which is known as dem bow. Often mistaken for reggae or reggae en español, reggaeton is a younger genre which originated in the clubs of San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1991. It became known as “underground” music, due to its circulation through informal networks and performances at unofficial venues. DJ Playero and DJ Nelson were inspired by hip hop and Latin American music to produce “riddims,” the first reggaeton tracks. As Caribbean and African-American music gained momentum in Puerto Rico, reggae rap in Spanish marked the beginning of the Boricua underground and was a creative outlet for many young people. This created an inconspicuous-yet-prominent underground youth culture which sought to express itself. As a youth culture existing on the fringes of society and the law, it has often been criticized. The Puerto Rican police launched a campaign against underground music by confiscating cassette tapes from music stores under penal obscenity codes, levying fines and demoralizing rappers in the media. Bootleg recordings and word of mouth became the primary means of distribution for this music until 1998, when it coalesced into modern reggaeton. The genre’s popularity increased when it was discovered by international audiences during the early 2000s
