One of the brightest stars in the dancehall firmament Busy Signal gained his stage name as a young man because he was always too busy to answer his cell ’phone. Little has changed… he has been in constant demand ever since and his ‘phone is now constantly engaged with worldwide offers of work.

Max Romeo’s unerring ability to convey not only the manifest tribulations of Jamaican life but also some of its more amusing aspects with equal fervour and conviction have ensured his position as one of the most popular and versatile singers and songwriters of his generation.

Date Updated: Sep 27, 2013
Prince Tony’s TR International productions, probably more than the work of many other producers, popularised the art of Jamaican deejays, Big Youth and U Roy in particular, and brought them to world wide prominence in the second half of the seventies…

The story of Tamoki Wambesi Dove is, in effect, Roy Cousins’ story and his struggle for survival and artistic freedom in a viciously competitive world. The history of The Royals, with the group’s ever-changing line up of harmony singers, is inseparable from the close-knit community of Kingston 11 where the power and strength of singing was one of the few legitimate ways out of the ghetto.

Derrick/David ‘Scotty’ Scott was not only one of the music’s most expressive and soulful singers but also one of the first artists to popularise the art of the deejay when he broke big in 1970… and by breaking big we mean massive.

“Tafari was and still is a true example of how music should be made and sold on record. It’s probably the only label in the world that upholds its principles throughout all of its business. The message is in the music.” Dave Hendley.

Date Updated: Aug 23, 2012
‘Living Legend’ is a much overused and abused description. However, no-one could argue that Ewart ‘U Roy’ Beckford is a living legend. The Rightful Ruler, the ‘Deejay Daddy’, deserves every accolade that comes his way.

Junior Byles

Text by Jeremy Collingwood
Date Updated: Mar 9, 2011
Famed in Jamaica as the artist who took Rasta music into the mainstream with his ‘Beat Down Babylon’ track and in the roots scene as an intense performer of militant and devotional songs. The scope of Byles success was limited by his human frailties, not any lack of musical gifts.
