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.
