Clement Dodd Jnr, the son of legendary music producer Clement Dodd, died on Thursday February 5, from cancer at age 56.

Dodd had been hospitalised for much of 2014, but had shown signs of recovery in the latter stages of the year.

Dodd was born in west Kingston but moved to England in the mid-1960s with his mother. He grew up in Birmingham, a city with a large West Indian community.

He moved to New York City in 1981 and worked for a time with his father’s Studio One label, which had established an office in Brooklyn.

Dodd Jnr launched his Basement and Coxson Jnr labels in the 1990s. He produced songs by roots acts including Junior Delgado, Prince Allah and Cornel Campbell.

In August 2010, the Jamaican Supreme Court ruled in Dodd’s favour in a revocation suit against his stepmother Norma and sister Carol.

The ruling gave Dodd Jnr a say in the distribution and marketing of the Studio One catalogue, enabling him to earn royalties from Jamrec, Studio One’s publishing company.

Dodd Jnr had filed suit in the Supreme Court in 2006, claiming his name was wrongfully removed from his father’s will which was made in December 1987.

Dodd Sr died in 2004. Dodd Jnr is survived by three children.
