Eek A Mouse (born Ripton Hylton), is one of earliest artists to be described as a “singjay. He adopted the stage name “Eek A Mouse” in 1979, taking the name of a racehorse he always bet on, and the name stuck. The Mouse needs to further description really, with a slew of hits under his belt throughout the early 80’s with too many anthems to mention, his popularity began to wane slightly in the towards the mid 80s. He decided to target the United States with the established label RAS Records led by the iconic Doctor Dread. As a result Eek A Mouse started to appeal to a wider cross over audience and toured extensively and even resided outside of Jamaica for some time. In 1987 the LP ‘Eek-A-Nomics’ was released and ‘Glamity’ was definitely one of the stand out tracks that didn’t stray too far from the Dancehall and was even released as a 7″ single produced by Doctor Dread.
