Glen Brown

“Glen Brown (born Glenmore Lloyd Brown, Jamaica), also known as ‘God Son’ and ‘The Rhythm Master’, is a Jamaican singer, musician, and record producer, working primarily in the genres of reggae and dub. He currently resides in New York. Brown began his musical career in the 1960s as vocalist with Sonny Bradshaw’s jazz group, subsequently recording duets with Hopeton Lewis, Lloyd Robinson and Dave Barker for producers such as Duke Reid and Coxsone Dodd. In the early 1970s, he began working as a producer, initially for the Shalimar label, and recorded Augustus Pablo-influenced melodica tracks, such as 1972’s ‘Merry Up’. He also recorded for Prince Buster, Leslie Kong, and Derrick Harriott. He formed two record labels; Pantomime (or Pantomine), and South East Music, and produced tracks by U Roy, Gregory Isaacs, Big Youth, I-Roy, Prince Jazzbo, Johnny Clarke, Lloyd Parks, and Little Roy. …”

“Glenhope ‘Glen’ Brown began his musical career as a vocalist and Augustus Pablo-influenced melodeon player, recording solo tracks and singing harmony on tracks produced by Prince Buster, Sir Coxsone Dodd, Leslie Kong, Derrick Herriot. His greatest success has come as the founder and owner of his reggae and dub labels, Pantomine and South East Music, and the producer of tracks by U Roy, Gregory Isaacs, Big Youth, Prince Jazzbo, Johnny Clarke and Little Roy. The heavy rhythms of his dub tracks resulted in his being known as ‘The rhythm master’. While lack of funds resulted in his early recordings initially limited to one hundred copies, they’ve become increasingly available. Tunes recorded between 1969 and 1976 were reissued on the 1995 album, ‘The Way To Mt. Zion’, while tracks recorded with King Tubby between 1973 and 1979 were compiled on the 1996 collection, ‘Termination Dub’. Currently residing in New York, Brown remains active as a songwriter and producer. In 2000 Small Axe and Terminal Head remixed Brown’s work for a single release that included remixes of fellow reggae artist, Yabby You.”
