U-Roy

19.7.2013 >> LP48!

(JAM) Jamaikalaisen musiikin elävä legenda, joka ensimmäisenä teki toustauksesta (laulavasta riimittelystä rytmin päälle) maailmanlaajuisen ilmiön. Sitä kautta hän on myös räpin kätilö, sillä räp syntyi New Yorkissa U-Royn ja hänen seuraajiensa innoittamien jamaikalaisten toimesta. Aktiivisena pysynyt mies on julkaissut useita albumeja 2000-luvullakin. Pray Fi Di People (2012) keinuu klassisella roots-soundilla kun rytmejä soittavat alan huiput, kuten Flabba Holt, Horsemouth, Skully ja Sly & Robbie. Ewart ”U-Roy” Beckford syntyi 1942 Jamaikan Jonestownissa musikaaliseen 7:nnen Päivän Adventistien perheeseen, mutta ryhtyi rastaksi 60-luvulla. Saman vuosikymmenen alussa hän aloitti DJ:nä Doctor Dickie’s Sound Systemissä ja työskenteli myöhemmin muissakin ”jamaikalaisdiscoissa”, kuten legendaarisessa King Tubby’sissa. Laulaja John Holt suositteli U-Royta tuottaja Duke Reidille kuultuaan tämän toustaavan Holtin Wear You To The Ball -hitin päälle. Reidin tuottamat Wake The Town (versio Alton Ellisin Girl I’ve Got A Datesta), Rule The Nation (Techniquesin Love Is Not A Gamble) ja Wear You… menivät heti Jamaikan listan ykköseksi. 70-luvun puoliväliin mennessä U-Roy oli jo reggaen aatelia ja iso tähti Englantia ja USA:ta myöten. Hänen oppilaitaan ovat Josey Wales, I-Roy, Jah Screw, Ranking Joe ja monet muut toustaajat.
