Welcome To Dog Heart City

step into dog heart city!

Attention All Jahtarians!

To promote the release of Roger Robinsons new album we give you the chance to enter Dog Heart City for yourself and mash up those fat cat money men through the power of technology!

Wouldn’t you love a chance to stick it to ‘the man’?

Well now you can.

Let’s do it!

All you have to do is protect our man Roger Robinson from those bureaucratic attackers!

Wait, there’s more! – we’re running a competition until the 1st March – the owner of the highest score will receive a bundle of Dog Heart City goodies from Jahtari.

More details on the competiton and how to play below.

How To Play

We’ve made it super simple to get playing.

Just head over to dogheartcity.rogerrobinsononline.com – let the credits roll and hit play

PLAY DOG HEART CITY LISTEN TO DOG HEART CITY

 

The objective is to protect Roger from those men in suits described in the Dog Heart City Album.

They’re not going to make it easy!

Simply tap on an attacker to defeat him and keep Roger safe.

Multiple taps get more points.

Those suits are seriously aggressive though and it’ill take some serious finger tapping to keep them away otherwise they’ll do Roger some serious damage!

However there is hope!

With enough taps a heart will be displayed (see image below) – drag this to Roger and his energy will be replenished AND all suits in range destroyed!

HINT: using a touchscreen is key to a highscore!

When you’ve done the business submit your score and details and – if you’ve done well enough – you’ll be entered onto the highscore board and into the competition.

The Competition

Our competition runs up until 1st March

The highest 5 scores on that date win a prize.

Simply play the game and submit your details afterwards. You’ll be added to the Jahtari mailing list and notified if successful.

Don’t forget to share / tweet with your own networks and spread the word!

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!

One night in 2011 King Midas Sound‘s Roger Robinson returned to Brixton from touring and inadvertently walked into the centre of the London riots. Through the flames and smoke he felt compelled to tell the stories of the people he saw rioting on the street that night.

With disrupt‘s dub soundtrack highlighting the triumphs and tribulations in the lives of the people of Brixton, the album unfolds like a documentary film, extending from the epicentre of the riots and rippling out from there.

Roger showcases all his poetry and singing styles over the sonic tower blocks and underground caverns of disrupt’s dub soundscapes, evoking the golden era of dub poetry of the likes of Prince Far I, Big Youth and Linton Kwesi Johnson – a time when dub poetry made you dance in the club but also made you think on the way home.

Done with lots of voltage, old school samplers, DIY synths, home made delays, dictaphones and even onboard computer mics this gritty disc will take you straight to Brixton’s streets.
