Robin Catto started DJing in 1984, joining Brighton’s King Tafari Love sound system and Sussex University's Radio Falmer in 1985. In 1989 Robin joined Manasseh, a London-based sound system founded in 1985 by his school friends Nick Raphael (better known as Nick Manasseh), Bill Tuckey and Ed Maiden. Over the years, Manasseh featured regularly at Notting Hill Carnival, and played many big dances including sound clashes with Jah Shaka, Fatman, Jah Warrior, Volcano, Aba Shanti I, Jah Observer and Jah Tubbys.
Robin has DJed as support act for Dennis Brown, Frankie Paul, Ziggy Marley, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Burning Spear, Sugar Minott and U-Roy, and regularly presented Manasseh's Kiss FM radio show, a reggae institution occupying the late night Saturday night/Sunday morning slot for 12 years from 1987 until 1999.
