Biography

Active: 1990s-2010s
Country Of origin: Jamaica

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Tony Matterhorn was drawn to the sound system and selector (or DJ'ing) business in high school, and soon after made a name for himself as part of the duo King Addis and his ability to deliver an energetic and exciting live show. Performing in clubs all over North America, Matterhorn's style of hardcore dancehall won him accolades, including a victory at the dancehall World Cup in 2000. He finally broke through to mainstream American audiences in the summer of 2006 with his massive hit "Dutty Wine," which was heavily played on R&B and rap stations around the country. His output would slow by the 2010s, but his live appearances and feuds with other artists (a fight in the press with New Kidz in 2012 and with Bounty Killer in 2015) kept the selector a regular feature in Jamaican newspapers. ~ Marisa Brown~ Rovi
