Biography

Jah Screechy started to DJ on a sound called Black Lion in Kingsbury North West London with Bikey Dread, but with every opportunity we got, we would go and listen to our favourite sound Sir Coxsone Sound. With a love for Coxsone Sound and what it stood for, Bikey dread left Black Lion sound and joined up with Coxsone Sound along side Gappy Dread. By this time I was going to sound clash Sir Coxsone, Fat Man, King Tubbys, etc. Listening to Bikey Dread on de mic along side General Dan, Livi Roots, Duffus Ire, Gappy, Blacker Dread & Lloyd Coxsone the big man him self. By this time, my love for Coxsone Sound just grew and grew. I started going to the dances very early, helping to bring the sound boxes into the venue, as we all did at one time or another. What a great way to get into the dance for free and listen to your number 1 sound. But I wanted more, I have always wanted to be a DJ, from a little boy growing up in Jamaica (from me eye deh a me knee). But never thought I would make it on Coxsone. I can remember a sound clash at Brixton Town Hall. Sir Coxsone and Jah Shaka, wow what an experience, with de great Blacker Dread (de Dread at de control) an de great Festus Tipper Tone (de king of Dub Rock). And Gappy Dread at de control a mash up de dance with some dub plate from JA. By now I knew most of the sound crew. And as time went on I felt more at ease and was accepted as a member. I got a lot of inspiration from the other DJ’s to hold de mic at de beginning when dance a start and at the end when dance a done.
