About Blacker Dread
Born in September 1958, Blacker Dread was raised in the area known as White Horses, in the parish of St. Thomas, Jamaica. At the age of nine, he made the long journey to England to join his parents who had emigrated in 1960 and settled in Brixton, South London. Having left both home and school prematurely, Blacker endured a period of hardship, occasionally living rough, and learned how to survive life “The University of Ghetto-ology” on the city’s streets. As a release from the difficulties of this existence, he became involved in a local youth sound system from Brixton known as Ital King. However, Ital King did not last long and when the sound split in 1976, he elected to join Sir Coxsone Sound System, England’s most legendary and pre-eminent sound of all time. It was in this demanding school that Blacker learned and honed the skills that benefitted many of the leading exponents of Jamaican record production.
At present, Blacker continues to work on his many music production projects which consist of albums with Buju Banton, Jack Radics, Fred Locks, Anthony B, Josey Wales, and Leroy Gibbon, singles with Beres Hammond, Freddie McGregor, Gappy Ranks, Bushman, Christopher Ellis, Bucky Joe, U-Roy, Tippa Irie, Sylvia Tella, Vivian Jones, Winston McAnuff, Papa Michigan, Lukie D, Lone Ranger and Big Youth. He is also currently working with new and upcoming artistes in Jamaica such as Earth Warrior, Kquality, Izezz-I, Substanz, Javair, Craig Edeast, Skii D Limit, and Shanty B and continues to work with such legends as Sly and Robbie, Dean Fraser, Firehouse Crew, Mafia and Fluxy and many more singers and players of instruments.
