Outrageous, bizarre, and uniquely original, few DJs have made as much of a splash in the dancehall scene as Eek-A-Mouse. Standing at 6’6” above sea-level, Eek-A-Mouse has a commanding presence one cannot ignore. He’s an artist who has created a style all his own, utilizing reggae, rock and hip hop rhythms to complement his sometimes humorous and sometimes very poignant lyrics. Eek-A-Mouse is the originator and finest exponent of that particular form of reggae which has become known as "sing-jay" where singing and DJing (rapping) work in and out through a song.

Born Ripton Hylton, Eek-A-Mouse grew up in Trench Town, which he calls 'the first-class ghetto' of Kingston, Jamaica. His strange moniker is reflection of his sense of humor and ability to laugh at himself and the world. A fan of horse racing, he consistently lost money on a horse named "Eek-A-Mouse". He finally gave up betting on the horse, which then promptly won! The name stuck when in 1979, the Mouse decided to make music his full time career.
