Artist Biography The suburbs of Ipswich aren't exactly Trenchtown but they have produced YT. His latest album is called Born Inna Babylon, which couldn't sound more classic Jamaican reggae, but dancehall star YT is in fact born in Ipswich. The Suffolk town is not where you would expect to find the biggest thing in UK reggae, but YT - aka Mark Hull - is just the latest in a number of unlikely recent dancehall artists. Like Italian dancehall hot property Alborosie, German reggae artist Gentleman and even Sheffield's whizz kid producer Toddla T, he is inspired by Jamaican music rather than directly from it. Oh, and they're all white too.
