Dancehall music is different from reggae. Dancehall is exactly what is says - for dancing, mainly in a club (hall). Dancehall is more of DJ-ing concept, with artistes spinning songs on a certain rhythm, (for example, the Diwali rhythm). Dancehall can be often derogatory, but is generally just a lot of fun.

Dancehall is the best style of music ever appeared on the face of Earth. It is a mix of reggae and hip hop. The musicians record songs over a riddim, made by a producer, as they add something unique to it. Dancehall music is definitely the new hip hop which will take over the world in the new Millenium. It is originated in Jamaica and it is sang in "patois", which is an english slang.

Dancehall is a form of black music made by a bunch of dumb homophobic racists for consumption by a bunch of dumb homophobic racists. Any club night in the UK that specialises in playing dancehall will normally end in either a stabbing or a shooting where a few innocent bystanders get killed.
