U Brown's Repatriation Album includes 8 previously unreleased bonus tracks by Dickie Ranking (aka Snagga Puss). Produced By U Brown. One of the most significant of the younger generation of Jamaican deejays, U-Brown, was born Huford Brown in Kingston in 1956. One of 11 children, Brown's musical education began by accompanying his father to local bars, as well as spending quite a bit of time hanging out on Bond Street near Treasure Isle studios. While only 15 Brown began his deejaying career in earnest working for the Philip Monroe-owned Sound of Music, developing his skills while recording tracks like Wet Up Your Pants Foot and Jah Jah Whip Them. In 1975 he began working with Bunny Lee and cut his first album Satta Dread which was released only in Jamaica and Britain. Brown continued to work with Lee until the end of the decade recording three more obscure albums and a handful of equally obscure singles. Brown's principal influence is the great U-Roy and his deejaying retains U-Roy's surreal jive, only its a bit faster and more percussive. Plus, the dub tracks U-Brown toasts over (many of them mixed by King Tubby and Prince Jammy) are deeper and darker than U-Roy's giving the proceedings a more intense vibe. In the latter part of the 70s U-Brown started his own label (Hit Sound) and achieved a modicum of success as a producer and by the 80s he had relocated to Miami where he worked with producer Kenneth Black.
