He began mixing at the age of 15 for Philip Monroe at Sound Of Music. He became well known from his early hits such as ‘’Wet Up Your Pants Foot’’ and ‘’Jah Jah Whip Them’‘. In 1975, he recorded his first album ‘’Satta Dread,” which was released in Jamaica and England.

During the 70’s, many of his songs were mixed by artists like King Tubby and Prince Jammy. He created his own label called Hit Sound at the end of the 70’s.
