Inna diddly diddly stylee

If you like Irish music, and you like Dancehall, then you’ll LOVE Eek-a-Mouse jamming with Irish trad musicians at his 50th birthday party.

The way that Irish musicians use triplets (the rhythmic variation that puts the diddly-diddly into a tune) means that there is a bit of a synergy with reggae.

Examples:
  • Sharron Shannon had a not-bad example about ten years ago with her Out the Gap album (Amazon has samples)
  • Young Ned of the Hill (Dub) on the b-side of the Pogues 'Misty Morning Albert Bridge'

I'm sure there are plenty more examples, but this should do for now.
