A.k.a. Clement Seymour Dodd Dub Specialist Scorcher (2) The Boss (17)

Born: Jan 26, 1932, Kingston, Jamaica. Died: May 4, 2004, Kingston, Jamaica of a heart attack. Legendary Jamaican producer, recording pioneer and music entrepeneur, Clement "Coxsone" Dodd established the famous Studio One Studio and record label at 13 Brentford Road, Kingston, in 1963 after making his name in the island's competitive sound system scenario where he would play imported records and exclusively recorded dub plates [originally on 78s] to win over the audiences. In recognition of the importance of Mr. Dodd and his studio the street was renamed by the Kingston and St Andrew Corporation (the city government) to Studio One Boulevard on May 1st, 2004 from Brentford Road, four days before his sudden death. Dodd was behind many other labels, such as DownBeat, ND Records (2), C & N, Sabastians, Sensational, Coxsone Records, Cariboo, Wincox Records, Muzik City Records, D Darling, Supreme Records (10), Rolando & Powie, Worldisc, Money Disc, and Coxson.
