b. Eustace C. Hamilton, 14 August 1969, Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies. Thriller UGÇÖs style is similar to that of Frankie Paul. His 1989 recording of GÇÿItGÇÖs OverGÇÖ, produced by Hugh GÇÿRedmanGÇÖ James, was a hit and he toured the UK on the strength of it. The song was a lament to an unfaithful lover, over a classic rhythm with an irresistible riff. He released a number of singles, including GÇÿBig BambooGÇÖ, GÇÿPrivate PropertyGÇÖ, GÇÿAre You Really Ready For LoveGÇÖ, GÇÿIGÇÖll Prove It To YouGÇÖ, GÇÿWhere Would I GoGÇÖ and GÇÿSince You Came Into My LifeGÇÖ. He also recorded with Pan Head (GÇÿRun Down The ManGÇÖ), Flourgon (GÇÿGirls Just Wanna Have FunGÇÖ) and Johnny P (GÇÿYoung And She GreenGÇÖ). He worked with a number of producers including Ossie Hibbert, Bobby Digital, King Jammy and Donovan Germain. The George Michael ballad GÇÿCareless WhisperGÇÖ, and the Jennifer Rush epic GÇÿThe Power Of LoveGÇÖ, were both successfully covered by Thriller U, produced by Redman in 1990 and Ossie Hibbert in 1991, respectively. Although often considered as a Jamaican purveyor of lovers rock, he occasionally drifted into the dancehall style, notably on the track GÇÿSweetest SoundGÇÖ, which was featured on his album with Admiral Tibet, Two Good To Be True. In 1991 he recorded one of the many reggae versions of GÇÿI Wanna Sex You UpGÇÖ with Johnny Nice and Studio One legend Jennifer Lara. Sly And Robbie set up a new project, Punishers, and enrolled the services of Thriller U for GÇÿOne Day In Your LifeGÇÖ. In 1995, Thriller U enjoyed a hit with GÇÿThe Mind Is WillingGÇÖ. While enjoying a successful solo career, he also joined the vocal group L.U.S.T. (Love, Understanding, Sensitivity and Trust), alongside Singing Melody, Tony Curtis and Lukie D. The combined performers stated that the group was going to put the GÇÿflava back into reggaeGÇÖ. L.U.S.T. performed at MIDEM 1998 and later in New York at the third Culturama festival, to critical acclaim.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
