Tune Of The Day! – Digital We Digital – King Kong

King Kong was born in Kingston and first recorded as a deejay at Tuff Gong studios in 1982, initially working under the name Junior Kong, named after his father. His debut single was “Pink Eye”. He worked with GT and then his own Love Bunch sound system and then recorded for King Tubby’s Firehouse label, now singing in a similar style to Tenor Saw. The early King Kong recordings for Tubby were over early digital rhythms, and included songs such as “AIDS” and “Babylon”, and established him as a popular artist.
