BIOGRAPHY

JASON WILLIAMS aka DON YUTE

Don Yute is music's best kept revolutionary. Starting his career in the early 90s rising to unprecedented heights, Don Yute faced serious and life threatening odds. Despite severe adversity, Dancehall’s golden child is on the rise. The time has come to re-introduce you to one of Dancehall’s and the music industry's most remarkable artists. Born Jason Andrew Williams, Don Yute's introduction to the entertainment world is similar to that of his contemporaries: by chance and by being in the right place at the right time. After gaining a reputation for his freestyles, a friend introduced him to Legend Disco. This proved to be just the opportunity that he needed. Don Yute's first single "Murder Me" was released in 1993 for Barry O'Here, which he quickly followed with the successful "Hardcore" and popular "Lovin' Excess", a collaboration with Wayne Wonder. In an industry dominated by "rude yutes" and "bad bwoys", deejay Don Yute emerged on the dancehall scene as a unique figure. Born and raised in a middle class family in St. Andrew, Jamaica, he pursued a dream normally aspired to by young boys in inner city communities. These youths sought dancehalls as a means to escape poverty and depriavation. Don Yute uses his deejay skills to satisfy his need to express his thoughts and release constrained feeling. However, Don Yute’s background makes him no stranger to the struggle or pain for that matter. After landing a deal with Capital Records just about the time Dancehall Crazy became his most popular song, Don Yute headed first to Atlanta and then Miami. It was while in Atlanta that a masked gunman almost took his life. “Boobilous” or The Golden child as he is also called recounts the incident as a dark time in his life and only through God’s graces and the support of his family and friends was he able to make it through. Sufficiently healed physically, mentally and spiritually, Don Yute has put that sordid incident behind and has returned to his old ways and has bounced back more focused and determined than before. After establishing his own Golden Child Label, Don Yute began turning out a slew of self produced singles as well as productions for other established artistes in Mad Cobra, Beenie Man and Spragga Benz. In the United States, Don Yute has recorded with multi-platinum producer Jermaine Dupri (So So Def Records), recording the RIAA certified gold selling singles "Sexiest" and "Hardcore Wuk" for So So Def Bass All Stars compilation CD part 1 and 2. He also worked with the remix masters Lil' Jon and Paul Lewis the Dynamic Duo Tour, Capelton's gold single on Def Jam. Lil Jon has him on the original Move Bitch track on the BIA BIA album, and Ying Yang has him on their set, Me And My Brother. Don Yute describes his unique deejay style as a "steady hip hop bass combined with a seductive dancehall riddim". What he calls "WORLD HOP"! When it comes to performing, he is energetic, driven and focused - he is definitely a hardcore artist. He is not one to limit himself and is known to "ride the riddim" on any music he hears with feeling, passion and appealing originality. His style is all his own and he has a flavor that is at the forefront of much of the music revolution today. He is an outstanding artist and a phenomenal talent. Don Yutes distinctive vocals and unique flow put him in a class all his own.
