Techniques

Profile:
Hugely successful reggae label from Kingston, Jamaica founded and run by Winston Riley in the Rocksteady years continued its tradition with Lovers' and Roots releases, later featuring Deejays and Dancehall artists, often reviving earlier tunes.
Please use Techniques also for imprints from the UK, USA and Canada. For company credits [distribution, licensing and copyright] please use Techniques Records.
The UK label of the same name (subsidiary of Trojan Records and with a different label design - marketed and distributed by Trojan Records Ltd.) was set up initially to release the producer's output but soon embraced releases by a number of other Jamaican producers that weren't involved with the original Jamaican label.
Please note the number 92-26832 found on many Jamaican releases is not a catalogue number, but the label's telephone number.
