Selector Ricky Trooper was born in a dancehall - literally. While the sound systems were still turning of the night before, his mother gave birth on a sunny Saturday morning. As a child he built his first sound of boxes and mud and he threw imaginary parties for the neighbourhood kids. At the early age of 8 he learned how to spin real records. The fledgling selector got in high demand quickly and joined sound system Killamanjaro amongst others. In 2000 he started his own Sound Trooper. Ricky Trooper promptly won every clash and every prize with Killamanjaro, which makes him a living legend!
