On Sept. 17, 1966, Douglas E. Davis, professionally known as Doug E. Fresh or the Human Beatbox, was born in Christ Church, Barbados. His recording debut was with rapper Spoonie G and DJ Spivey in the collective known as the Boo-Dah Bliss Crew, on a tune called "Pass The Boo-Dah", in 1983. Later that year he would go on to release his own records as a solo artist, with the songs "Just Having Fun" and "Original Human Beat Box." Two years later with the Get Fresh Crew, consisting of DJs Barry B & Chill Will, and rapper MC Ricky D, who is now known as Slick Rick, they recorded what are considered Hip-Hop classics, "The Show" (which contains the Inspector Gadget Theme) and "La Di Da Di".
Outside of recording his own "call and response" type Hip-Hop anthem "I-ight (Alright)" in 1993, Doug recorded a few more albums, numerous singles, movie and TV appearances, and crossed over into Dancehall/Reggae, and Drum & Bass.
