Originally known as $pyda Don out of Nottingham, he started out as a reggae dancehall DJ on the UK midlands reggae sound system circuit in the mid to late 80’s, he quickly established himself as a solid performer on sounds like Supertone, Quantrotone, Black Star & then ultimately joining the popular Notts based sound V.Rocket where he worked with a whole host of UK based Jamaican dancehall artists of that era. In 1987 $pyda decided to take a trip to Antigua to visit his parents and subsequently recorded 2 tracks produced by Corporal Montana for African Treasure, the first was ”Antigua got the best sunshine” which was a hit on the island, he then went onto record ”African Girl”with singer Caution as a follow up. He next ventured to Jamaica, utilising his links to King Jammys through his association with V.Rocket & Mike Phipps, he visited Jammys studio in Waterhouse, Kingston. This resulted in three tracks being recorded… ”Kickin up a dust” ”Love and Unity” & ” Nah bless you”… Returning to the UK in 1990 to a very static dancehall scene that hadn’t really progressed much since his departure, $pyda decided it was time for a change and diversed into the underground Hiphop and R&B circuit trying to integrate his vocal talents into some different styles of music, this brought about an enhancement of new flavour to his work on the mic. Around 93-94 he embeded himself further into the cutting edge of UK underground dance music and began to MC over what was then known as Jungle.
