Eek-A-Mouse (born Ripton Joseph Hylton, 19 November 1957) is a Jamaican reggae musician Contents. The same year he released his second album, Wa Do Dem. The "Operation Eradication" single showed Hylton's serious side, the song inspired by the vigilante killing of close friend and fellow DJ Errol Shorter. Skidip was released before the year was out. Further albums followed with 1983's Mouse and the Man, produced by Linval Thompson, and 1984's Mouseketeer, again produced by Lawes.
Album · 1981 · 13 Songs. While it wasn’t his debut album, 1982’s Wa-Do-Dem revealed Eek-A-Mouse’s wholly original and strangely alluring style. His half-sung, half-spoken vocals can be nasally playful or faraway ghostly, and his ability to turn nonsense syllables into otherworldly incantations is nothing short of brilliant. And there are compelling narratives, such as Ganja Smuggling, which tells of an innocent kid’s initiation into the drug trade, and Operation Eradication, a story of Eek’s murdered friend, fellow toaster Errol Shorter.

1982's Wa-Do-Dem gathered up a clutch of these, with the Greensleeves reissue adding two more cuts from the period. The Roots Radics lay down the kind of deep roots sound that was swiftly becoming Lawes trademark, while Scientist, King Tubby, and Barnabus took their places behind the mixing desk. The result was one of the most astonishing DJ albums of ever recorded. Wa-Do-Dem, with its seething rhythms, simmering melodies, and spot on toasts in a unique fashion, proves otherwise.
