Dog Heart City

ROGER ROBINSON
“Dog Heart City”

JTRTAPE03
release date: 27.01.2017
limited cassette (€10.00), digital

TAPE SOLD OUT BUY DIGITAL

After their highly acclaimed album “Dis Side Ah TownRoger Robinson and disrupt are returning with a reel full of new tales about survival in a Dog Heart City. These stories, delivered in Robinson’s full vocal spectrum between low-end dub poetry tremors and haunting falsetto singing, are trying to make the invisible lives visible: giving people affected by gentrification, racism, unemployment and low wage work a sense of authority and aesthetic nobility.

Each song on this tape became a story in that city, while the tape itself is like the city holding these stories. “Nightshifttells about the workers who clean the buildings where power is held, and the contrast between their lives and where they clean. “Flowers” comments on the rate of young black men getting killed, where another victim dies even before the last mourning flowers have dried. There are stories about tower block life, the claiming of a postcode or how the city wears a Swastika like a proud badge in Post-Brexit UK.

This beautiful cassette collects a pile of special riddim cuts from the Jahtari vaults, from re-edited classics by Bo Marley, unreleased gems by John Frum, to completely new experiments, all lovingly dubbed live and soaked in analogue goodness by disrupt.

Stunning hand-painted cover art by Kiki Hitomi, strictly limited tape run!

UPDATE: The limited cassette run is sold out!

Lee Perry vs. Jahtari 7″ on On U Sound

Lee Perry vs. Jahtari 7″ on On U Sound

A Jahtari 7″ with Lee Perry and Adrian Sherwood, out on On U Sound, mastered & cut by Dubplates & Mastering, distributed by Warp… well, we couldn’t be more honored and happier with the result: the two tripped out Rootah and disrupt versions are sounding as tuff as they should.

It appeared on On U sound as a limited Black Friday 2016 edition end of last year, and a few copies of this very hard-to-find wax made it over to our Jahtari shop. So best head quickly over HERE.

The Upsetter Meets Jahtari In The Secret Laboratory bring together a meeting of minds for this digi-dub 8-bit 9-bar remix package being transmitted all the way from the year 2026.

The Adrian Sherwood and Style Scott-produced Lee “Scratch” Perry original, Scientific Dancehall is a rolling drumfunk heavy jazzy bumper that has long been a firm fav round these parts, but we’d almost go as far to say the Jahtari updates from Disrupt & Rootah re-route the original transmission through a pixelated Echo Dek that blends the digi-dancehall sound into something resembling the outer reaches fellow astral-travellers Tapes, Equiknoxx, Seekers & the Bokeh Versions crew.

This 7″ came out on On U Sound as a Black Friday 2016 limited edition – rare!

Belt up for a mind-altering journey through time and space stopping by Japanese enka, 8-bit psychedelica and mutated digi dub on this genre-defying long player from King Midas Sound’s Kiki Hitomi and Jahtari bossman disrupt.

Set against an intergalactic backdrop of riddims and soundscapes “Karma No Kusari” (“Chain Of Karma”) unfolds piece by piece, with Kiki’s otherworldly tone of voice providing a ghostly atmosphere that is at times unsettling but always achingly beautiful.

This gritty disc of cosmic vintage pop – entirely done without a computer – includes compositions by Maffi, the mysterious Tapes plus a transmission from the immortal Space Ape. With stunning artwork by Kiki herself “Karma No Kusari” is indispensible for any true space cadet.
