The Suffolk town of Ipswich is not where you would expect to find the next big thing in UK reggae, but this is the reality of the youth called Mark Hull aka YT. 2006 saw YT firmly establish himself as one of the UK’s hottest reggae artists.
YT has had a string of hit singles including international smash hit ‘Wicked Act’, a thought provoking account of 7/7 London bombings, and chart topping ‘England Story’. Both of these tracks were included on YT’s debut album ‘Straight Outta Britain’ which saw his career and international recognition rise to a next level culminating in him winning the U.M.A. award for best UK Reggae Artist and becoming widely established as one of Europe’s leading Reggae Dancehall artists.
Escalator Music enabled YT to press his second album ‘Born Inna Babylon’ in 2009 as well as hold a large scale launch event in Sheffield. After working with leading UK Reggae producer Curtis Lynch JR and J.D. aka Dreadie among others this album follows on from where `Straight Outta Britain` left off; Reggae-based but with a little eclectic UK flavour including collaborations with international Dub icon ‘Zion Train’, Million Stylez, Mr Williams, Blackout JA, Skinnyman , Daddy Freddy and Shola Ama.
