b. Jason Andrew Williams, 9 May 1974, Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies. Don Yute is best remembered for his 1995 combination hit with Wayne Wonder, â€˜Sensi Rideâ€™. He performed in a style reminiscent of Beenie Man and Bounty Killer. He also recorded in combination with Prezident Brown on the enlightening â€˜African Thingâ€™. Don Yuteâ€™s success led to him working with a number of producers, including Donovan Germain (â€˜All That Glittersâ€™), Bobby Digital (â€˜Funny Funnyâ€™) and Steely And Clevie (â€˜Hard Coreâ€™), while Colin â€˜Bulbyâ€™ York produced â€˜Click Clickâ€™. He maintained a high profile with the hits â€˜Gal It Wouldnâ€™t Easyâ€™, â€˜You Own Di Manâ€™, â€˜La La Laâ€™, â€˜Golden Childâ€™ and â€˜Livinâ€™ In A Dreamâ€™. In 1997 he released his debut album, which included the cream of his hits. In the same year he appeared at Sting 97 with newcomer Sean Paul, who had enjoyed a combination hit, â€˜Ladies Nightâ€™, with Spanner Banner. Don Yute is considered a â€˜name brandâ€™ DJ, but he has yet to repeat the success of â€˜Sensi Rideâ€™. In the latter half of the 90s the studios in Jamaica were delivering literally thousands of dancehall releases, and much of Don Yuteâ€™s later work was neglected as a result; some hope emerged, however, when the Jamaican Government asked the islandâ€™s producers to limit the number of releases.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
