"Winston 'Prince Huntley' Dakin has quietly been an integral part of the Kingston reggae scene for nearly 40 years. Operating the Modernize Printery on Nelson Road, off Maxfield Avenue, and a stone's throw from Channel 1 studio, Huntley printed the labels for thousands of reggae records in the past four decades. In addition, Huntley is an accomplished producer and artist, all along issuing a steady stream of tunes on his main imprints such as Modernize Music, Greedy Puppy and others. One of our favorite early '80s tunes is produced by Huntley and voiced by his long time spar Horace Martin, called 'Me Rule.' A very tough rhythm with killer synths, this was reissued not long ago. When we did some printing work in Jamaica with Huntley, we got to talking about his catalog and when discussing 'Me Rule', were overjoyed to find out that there were unreleased cuts on the rhythm. So we ran off the master tapes and gave them a listen, and found these two killer cuts. Horace Martin's second voicing on the rhythm, titled 'Bad Boys', is a reality tune about the runnings of the day. The B-side is a unique dub version."
