Chukki Starr

Born in Harlesden, London, Anthony Williams aka Chukki Starr, started out as a deejay – then under the name Chukki Brown – for his own formed Echo Tone Hi Fi soundsystem in the Stone Bridge Community.

His debut recording “Goodas Gal” was produced by Stonehead of the Uk-based ‘Volcano’ Sound. After joining his family in Jamaica he voiced some specials in Jamaica. In 1993/1994 Chukki Starr returned to the UK, teamed up with Gussie P. of “Fashion Records”.

He released a series of hits including “Career Time”, “Evilous System”, Who Dem Fi Rate” and Almighty Father’. Back in Jamaica Chukki Starr performed in Western Kingston on the sound system circuit. These activities were followed by sessions for several top producers. He recorded a couple of tunes for Bobby ‘Digital’ Dixon and African Star and voiced lots of specials for several Jamaican sounds. From that time on he built up a special relationship with Bobby Digital as well as African Star.

By 1997 Chukki Starr was considered to be one of UK’s top deejays, also due to the considerable success of his own Makiel label release, “Forever I Shall Praise”, and the combination hit with Aisha, “Hard Times”. It was his association with Ariwa’s Mad Professor that led to the release of his highly acclaimed debut album, “Ghetto Youths Livity”.

Lyrically Chukki Starr always concentrates on conscious themes.
