Top Cat has a string of number one singles to his credit (both as performer and producer) and a British Reggae award for Best British DJ. He's also noted for incorporating jungle and hip-hop into his brand of reggae. He gained experience by toasting with U.K. sound systems, which gave him his first chart-topper, "Love Me Sess" (1988). His debut album, Sensimelia Man, appeared the following year. From JA to UK Clash Vol. 3 was released in 1993. Another number one single followed closely after, called "Request the Style." A reggae version and a jungle version of "Push up Yu Lighter" became Top Cat's third number one for the U.K. charts. After forming the 9 Lives label, he hit the top of the charts again with "Over U Body/Rude Boy Remix" and "Wind You up Body." A compilation of his biggest singles, King of the Jungle is available through Ras Records. ~ John Bush
