iTunes Review

In an attempt to capitalize on the burgeoning success of ragga deejays like Shabba Ranks, Eek-A-Mouse reigned in his eccentricities and created a focused modern dancehall album with 1991’s U-Neek. Based on a canonical hip-hop sample (“Synthetic Substitution” by Melvin Bliss), the throbbing and catchy “You’re the Only One I Need” sets the album’s tone. While other ragga deejays of the era were overloading on machismo, Eek’s melodiously unpredictable vocal style set his music apart. Fairly straightforward tracks like “Gangster Chronicles” are made unique by the fact that Eek always embraced his weird side. While his cover of Led Zeppelin’s “D’yer Mak’er” panders a bit too hard to the Reggae Sunsplash audience, “So Fine” is a brilliant merger of traditional and modern styles. Even better, the back half of the album is stacked with digital dancehall tracks that are fearsome and skeletal, including “Border Patrol” and “Rude Boys a Foreign.”

Ludicrous, bizarre, and uniquely original, few DJs have made such a splash in the dancehall scene than Eek-A-Mouse. An artist who in any other country would have been a one-hit wonder, in Jamaica became a household name having invented a whole new vocal style, sing-jay, flooding the airwaves with his catch phrases and going on to become a respected toaster. Eek-A-Mouse didn't start out as a novelty act. He was born Ripton Hilton in 1957 in Kingston, Jamaica, and his first foray into the music world...
