In Jamaica, the Stalag version (or Stalag riddim) was a popular reggae rhythm which came to prominence in the mid 1970s. First released in 1973, as the instrumental Ansel Collins track "Stalag 17", named after the war film with the same name. It was mainly used for dub instrumental versions, often b-sides of records. In contemporary times the rhythm successfully made the transition to Dancehall. The riddim was the basis for such tracks as "Bam Bam" and "Ring the Alarm".
