All Music Guide:
Glenhope "Glen" Brown began his musical career as a vocalist and Augustus Pablo-influenced melodeon player, recording solo tracks and singing harmony on tracks produced by Prince Buster, Sir Coxsone Dodd, Leslie Kong, Derrick Herriot. His greatest success has come as the founder and owner of his reggae and dub labels, Pantomine and South East Music, and the producer of tracks by U Roy, Gregory Isaacs, Big Youth, Prince Jazzbo, Johnny Clarke and Little Roy. The heavy rhythms of his dub tracks resulted in his being known as "The rhythm master" While lack of funds resulted in his early recordings initially limited to one hundred copies, they've become increasingly available. Tunes recorded between 1969 and 1976 were reissued on the 1995 album, "The Way To Mt. Zion", while tracks recorded with King Tubby between 1973 and 1979 were compiled on the 1996 collection, "Termination Dub". Currently residing in New York, Brown remains active as a songwriter and producer. In 2000 Small Axe and Terminal Head remixed Brown's work for a single release that included remixes of fellow reggae artist, Yabby You.
