Robert Dixon, better known as Bobby "Digital" Dixon, got his nickname because his arrival at King Jammys coincided with the rise of Steely and Clevie's computerised riddim tracks in 1985. He rapidly learned dub-cutting, voicing and mixing under King Jammy's tuition. Very soon he was to play a pivotal role in the running of the studio and recorded extensively with artists like Sanchez, Cocoa Tea, Shabba Ranks, Chaka Demus, Admiral Bailey and many more. Three years later he formed his own Heat Wave sound sytem, build his own studio and set up his "Digital B" label. Since then he has become one of Jamaica's leading producers, with top albums by Garnett Silk, Pinchers, Glen Ricks, Sanchez, Admiral Tibet, Shabba Ranks, Dirtsman, Morgan Heritage and Leroy Smart. He is specialised in recreating classics from the past and has released numerous one (or two) riddim albums. With his credentials as a fellow ghetto youth made good, an extensive array of gifted artists and a burgeoning reputation with a wider audience after his work with international acts, Bobby Digital is well situated to stay a leading producer for years to come.
