about

With his stage name coming from his love of late 60s Jamaican deejay U-Roy and his light skin, U-Brown began his deejaying career as the 1970s dawned. In the mid-70s he began working with major producer Bunny Lee, and soon got a chance to deejay on King Tubby's Hi-Fi. U-Brown's hyped-up version of U-Roy jive-saturated talkover style sounded great over the heavy dubs mixed by Tubby, and he ended up deejaying many of the top sounds in Jamaica from 1970 to 1985. He's continued to deejay and produce ever since.

In-between a few gigs with French sound system Soul Stereo, he came to the Paris DJs studio in december 2014 to cut a few new tracks with producer Grant Phabao, starting with the neo-classic 'Mr. DJ Let The Music Play', recorded on one of Phabao's biggest riddims, the 'Honey' one he had build over the Erykah Badu's hit of the same name. With its dynamic skanking and shoutouts the tune has been rocking the discerning dancehalls those last few months, getting even picked by DJ Craig Charles (BBC6) as one of the Biggest Funk and Soul Stompers from 2015!

U-Brown's unmistakeable deejay flow with a stylistic debt to the deejay godfather U-Roy is a delectation to hear voiced and mixed with Grant Phabao at the controls once again on this follow-up single: a heavy, bubbling, slow and fat, masterful riddim from the Parisian producer, on which the veteran deejay lays a a deep and sensual rub-a-dub toast. Hopefully both tunes will end up on a lovely 7 inch vinyl, in the 'Vinyl Is Good For You Vol.2' boxset of 45s Paris DJs has started working on...
