Reggae artist Tenor Fly Has Passed Away.

by Tom
(USA)


Jonathan Sutter AKA Tenor Fly died suddenly on 17 June 2016.


Legendary British MC and vocalist Tenor Fly has passed away.

The artist was perhaps most closely associated with the ragga and jungle movements, helping to broaden the language of both with his imagination and spiritual depth.

The MC would, however, spray over any rhythm that came his way, working with everything from roots reggae and dancehall through to ruffneck drum 'n' bass.

The passing of Tenor Fly has come as an enormous shock to the UK bass community, with countless artists paying their respects.

London label Nice Up! Records seem to sum up the MC's life and work better than anyone else:

Without a doubt one of the legends of the soundsystem scene here in the UK and a talent that spread across the world. From dancehall, reggae and hip hop to jungle, his style and influence cannot be understated - an original roughneck rudeboy. Not only a consummate artist and performer, but a genuinely nice guy too. We don't use the term "legend" lightly.
