b. Jason Andrew Williams, 9 May 1974, Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies. Don Yute is best remembered for his 1995 combination hit with Wayne Wonder, GÇÿSensi RideGÇÖ. He performed in a style reminiscent of Beenie Man and Bounty Killer. He also recorded in combination with Prezident Brown on the enlightening GÇÿAfrican ThingGÇÖ. Don YuteGÇÖs success led to him working with a number of producers, including Donovan Germain (GÇÿAll That GlittersGÇÖ), Bobby Digital (GÇÿFunny FunnyGÇÖ) and Steely And Clevie (GÇÿHard CoreGÇÖ), while Colin GÇÿBulbyGÇÖ York produced GÇÿClick ClickGÇÖ. He maintained a high profile with the hits GÇÿGal It WouldnGÇÖt EasyGÇÖ, GÇÿYou Own Di ManGÇÖ, GÇÿLa La LaGÇÖ, GÇÿGolden ChildGÇÖ and GÇÿLivinGÇÖ In A DreamGÇÖ. 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, GÇÿLadies NightGÇÖ, with Spanner Banner. Don Yute is considered a GÇÿname brandGÇÖ DJ, but he has yet to repeat the success of GÇÿSensi RideGÇÖ. In the latter half of the 90s the studios in Jamaica were delivering literally thousands of dancehall releases, and much of Don YuteGÇÖs later work was neglected as a result; some hope emerged, however, when the Jamaican Government asked the islandGÇÖs producers to limit the number of releases.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
