In 1988 in Bahamas I heard recordings of VERY bass heavy, slow paced Reggae w/little vocals. Who plays it?

It is not Ska (new or old), not Dancehall with its fast pace and rap like vocals, it is not Bob Marley, or any of the Marley sound a likes.

I heard this music while on a public bus. They had these big woofers in the back of the bus. Certainly the coolest bus ride I ever had.

I'm not sure I've ever heard this sort of music since.

I'm looking for clues as to the name of the style and who plays it.

Thanks

Doug
