Biografie

Growing up at the time of Jamaica's great sound systems of the 1960s and 1970s, Sugar Minott worked as a studio apprentice at Coxsone Dodd's legendary Studio One before going on to become the Godfather of Dancehall. Learning to sing in his church choir, his sweet, soulful voice led to early hits Vanity, Hang On Natty and Mr DC, before his style grew from roots reggae into the sparser, more romantic, lovers rock style of his classic album Black Roots (1979). He moved to the UK in 1980, becoming a star of London's reggae scene with the hits African Girl, Make It With You and Run Come and reached Number 4 in the singles chart with his cover of Michael Jackson's Good Thing Going. He produced one of the first ragga records Rub A Dub Sound Style with Sly And Robbie and later featured on the cult album Radiodread (2006), on which Radiohead songs were covered in a reggae style. He died in 2010 of a heart condition, but will be remembered as one of reggae's great voices.
