About JUNIOR DEMUS:
Expert DJ Junior Demus is known for the gruff-voiced chants that he can spill out at the drop of a dime, even without a microphone around.
"When Me Come" was Demus' first single. It became available to fans in 1991. Luke Records released Demus' debut full-length album, Bad Fowl, three years later. Some of the tracks from this effort are "Come Quick," "Son of a Gun," and "Hold Me Down." He has also recorded a number of other singles, including "One Master," "Good Over Evil," and the popular number "Cabin Stabbin," which he completed with Super Cat and the late Nicodemus. They also worked together on the album The Good, the Bad, the Ugly, and the Crazy for Sony Music in 1994.
Demus has lent his talents on several dancehall and reggae compilation albums filled with hard hip-hop tunes by artists like the Frisco Kid, Wicka Man, Foxy Brown, Rob Symeonn, Sugar Minott, Sluggy Ranks, and many others.
