Culture Dan, born Horace Clarke in the parish of St. Mary, began showing early signs of love for reggaemusi. At any local event Culture and his peers would hang around to hear and see the latest artists and songs played, then at night on the streetcorners under the lights he would imitate artists and thier songs sometimes making up song of his own. At the age of twelve Culture was making a name for himself at school concerts and local events. At thirteen he moved to Trelawny where he teamed up with Trelawny's number one sound system: Studio Four with Doctor Sting and others. At fourteen he accepted the Rastafarian faith, becoming a member of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, funtioning from the tribe of Dan, thus giving him the name "CULTURE DAN". In 1983 he became one of -Jahlove Muzik- permanent Dj's, teaming up with Brigadier Jerry and others, touring all over Jamaica. He then migrated to the United States to spend time with his family. In 1987 and 1988 he won DJ of the year in Washington DC., being the first to have ever won this in two consecutive years. While still playing his trade locally in Jamaica with Jahlove Muzik, he went on to record his first singles, "Hold It Down Blood" and "Coming in Fresh" for the Black Liberty label, based in Maryland USA. After the migration of Brigadier Jerry to the USA, Culture Dan returned to play an important role on JahloveMuzik. This involved torunign with Jerimiah as the main Dj's that year through, Canada, France, England and Sotlad to only name a few. In 1994 Culture reamed up with the Bus Out Studio, wich saw him release songs like, "Hundred Gran", "Hotty Hotty", and "Survivor", a combination with Collington Daley who resides in Canada.
