The Telegraph :: New London, Connecticut

Philip 'Fatis' Burrell, producer extraordinaire, founder of Jamaica's iconic Xterminator record label which started on the road to it's legendary status in the early 1980s. The label originally began as Vena Recordings and later transitioned to Kings & Lions, which then became Exterminator. It wasn't until later that Exterminator would rebrand by dropping the 'E' to become known as Xterminator. At the time, there were interesting movements taking place in black music all over the world, from Funk to R&B and even Hip Hop, but the digital era of reggae and dancehall would soon follow with Xterminator playing a major role in it's development. Fatis' core philosophy was perhaps what propelled him into the forefront of the music and drew a multitude of talents, who became some of the biggest artistes in Jamaican music history, to his label such as Luciano, Sizzla, Mikey General, and Capleton.
