Ghost music first came to prominence in 1993 when he recorded with producer Clifton “Specialist” Dillon. Dillon enrolled Hylton, who performed as Ghost, to sing in combination with another newcomer, the raspy DJ Culture.
The singjay style of Ghost music combined with Culture’s ragga rapping was widely considered as being testament to the evolution of the digital reggae sound. A notable track from these sessions was the braggadocio “Gal Pickney”, featured on the ragga showcase Strictly Dancehall.
Therefore the release included the re-recording of Ghost music hit, “Body Guard” alongside notable tracks including “Flava”, “Dem Time Deh” and “Weed Is Life”. The crew continued to record in combination and individually which led to Ghost’s chart success with the haunting “What Have You Done”. The song demonstrated his unique style and signalled his emergence as a serious contender for the singjay crown. His new-found affluence resulted in a move to St. Andrew where he was falsely accused of being in possession of firearms. The case was thrown out of court and the action resulted in favourable publicity for the performer.
