Jahtari Jahtari
1 - 2 - 3 -

Soundsystem bestehend aus Disrupt, Rootah und Intruktah D.

This man is creating quite a storm throughout the reggae and dubstep world, a purveyor of the 8-Bit sound backed by modern computer muscle, Disrupts album Foundation Bit sold out in a day and required immediate repress, packed with nuff original productions in his unique style as well is his takes on classic riddims such as Tempo and Peenie Peenie (Fade Away). He is described by Thom Yorke as the act to check alongside Burial for something unique in dubstep and he is also championed by Mary Anne Hobbs. Next level dub biziness!
His cuts Empress and Brand New Second Hand are modern classics and have the perfect blend of quality reggae music and Disrupts unmistakable blip-beep sound. Both tracks have an upbeat offbeat swing with a sound that interweaves around Mikey’s vocal with his plethora of sound The lead synth on the Second Hand dub is also testament to his playing ability and instantly conjures up the same images of cowboys and the Wild West felt in 80’s Jamaica along with a heavy dub sound. These are destined to be on heavy rotation not only on soundsytems but also by any purveyor of good quality music. Big tings a gwaan fi Disrupt 2008, there’s no doubt about it, stay tuned! Modern day dub master!!

The other half of Jahtari steps up for the second 10” with a blisteringly authentic digital sound again, based around a laptop setup. Rootah’s production sounds like a cross between Basic Channel and the most delightfully obscure 80’s dancehall. Rootah has been DJing since the early 90’s and in this time has been perfecting his production with the nicest blend of computah programming and rough overheated analog tubes and delay units.
Get it already and She’s Gone have a slightly darker more melancholy sound like Waterhouse has just turned Firehouse. This makes the two 10” perfectly match in a ying yang sort of way. Rootah’s productions have such a detailed heavy sound they will both destroy a soundsystem and demand a detailed Hi Fi listen. The She’s Gone Dub provides a whole new drum pattern which gives the track a completely different flavor completing the pack.

Instruktah D
I started freestylin with my man propaganjah back in 1998. we rushed parties and plugged in our mics, no matter what the music was, we stormed stages at hip hop jams and started freestyle sessions all over the frankfurt area. radio x turned into an epicentre of the scene and i hosted a couple of regular shows, at times with more than 20 mcs hungry for the mic. inspired by these cyphers i started to project freestyle rap onto live music, culminatin in a monthly jam session at clubvoltaire, which has been goin strong for six years and countin. the turning point for my musical focus came in the uk, where i lived for a few years, spinnin tunes and spittin ital niceness. fascinated by the soundsystem culture, me bredren and i started to build our own rig in 2005, the mighty SEQUOIA SOUNDSYSTEM! rinsin everyting from roots to ragga, from dub to steppers and chattin over the versions turned our dances into blazin arenas. in the need for ever deeper sub pressure we started explorin a sound on the dub side of step, grimey and yet deep, poundin and meditatin, built only for the bassment. and this is where i am right now, stuck in a postindustrial mirage tryin to connect heavy underground vibes with a ragin crowd, the link between ruff tunage and open ears. in the soundsystem tradition i am a deejay that tears down borders for pure bassline showers, whith the mic in my hand to introduce, support and push this sound past the distant future!
bass and love,
Instruktah D
