Recorded in London and Los Angeles this Ariwa release breathes some fresh air into the ever wonderful DJ reggae sound created by DJ legend U Roy. Cuts like "True Born African" and "Ghetto Youth" have a fresh feel to them as U Roy lays it down in his inevitable wild stylee! U-Roy aka Ewart Beckford's toasting career started in the early-60's where he had DJ stints with some impressive sound systems such as Dickie Wongs Sound System and Sir Coxone Dodds Sound System (alongside DJ legend King Stitt aka The Ugly One) before moving onto King Tubbys Hometown Hi Fi System. Early singles produced by the likes of Keith Hudson and Duke Reid saw U Roy make his mark and become one of the top toasters. 1975 saw the release of the classic Dread In Babylon LP which concreted his status as a true talent. 1991's True Born African once again sees U-Roy deliver a striking DJ album with Mad Professor's production and guidance.
