Tappa Zukie (AKA Tapper Zukie)is a reggae deejay and producer. Zukie's first release was a single issued in 1973. One notable fan was Patti Smith, who gave Zukie a support slot on her UK tour and contributed sleeve-notes to a 1977 album. After 1976, he concentrated on producing music in Jamaica, working with reggae musicians. Dub Em Zukie (rare Dubs 1976-1979).
Tappa Zukie (David Sinclair) born 1955 Kingston, Jamaica actually cut his first record in England, after being sent there aged 17. He was breaking from his troublesome past that found him running with the rough crowd on the streets of Kingston. On his arrival in sunny Ladbroke Grove London, producer Bunny Lee called him up on stage at a local dance to sing a tune. Impressed with the results fellow producer Larry Lawrence got the young Tappa in the studio the very next day and cyt Jump and Twist. This led to cutting his Man I Warrior album, but somewhat disillusioned and homesick he returned to Jamaica shortly afterwards. Jamaican Recordings have collected together some great lost treasures and some alternative cuts to some of Tappa’s better known releases.
