REGGAEOBIT: The death has been announced of Barry Brown, the Studio One reggae artist. It's believed that Brown - who has been under a drug cloud for a long while - died from a head injury received during a fall.

Born in 1962 in Kingston, Brown had his first hit in 1979 with Set Up Youthman. A patchy career followed, with a mix of successes (1984's Belly Move) and less well received work (Problems Get You Down was largely ignored upon its 1981 release). Although he never quite achieved the heights of his early career again, he continued to be proflific up until his death.
