Tippa Irie UK’s best loved reggae vocalist at Hideaway Jazz Club London

Description

Tippa Irie first came to prominence in the early eighties as an MC on the South London reggae sound system, Saxon Studio International.

He achieved his first national exposure on night time BBC Radio 1 in the mid-1980s, with the singles ‘It’s Good To Have The Feeling You’re The Best’ and ‘Complain Neighbour’ (on Greensleeves Records), before achieving a UK Top 40 hit in 1986 with ‘Hello Darling’.

He has collaborated with Alexander O’Neal, Long Beach Dub Allstars, and Chali 2na. However, he enjoyed his biggest success so far in 2003, when he appeared on The Black Eyed Peas track, ‘Hey Mama’ and has since recorded with the London-based avant-dancehall outfit, The Bug, on the single ‘Angry’ and also with The Skints, dropping his trademark vocals alongside Horseman on ‘This Town’.
