In a match made in deep dub heaven, our next 12″ sees legendary Berlin-based mic chanter Paul St. Hilaire, aka Tikiman, meet the indomitable knob tweakers behind the Jahtari Riddim Force.

Opening with the cavernously deep Rhythm & Sound-esque Nah Ina It, Tiki strikes a lyrical blow against the myriad Babylonian forces creating schisms across our world. And no reprieve is granted to the evildoers when his conspirator, Raggamuffin Alex, issues a further decree on this epic Rootah disco mix in a devastating singjay fashion.

On the flip, toes can’t help but tap to the bouncing beat of Who Goes There, with Tiki flexing his fast chat chops alongside the swirling arpeggios of disrupt’s custom-built SID chip synth (check the video below to see how the riddim was made!). Tiki then drops back an octave or two on the sweet but ever-so-slightly demented riddim of One O’Clock Rock to keep things ticking over in a gruff rub-a-dub style.

And the finale, Love Jah Now, shows Tiki comes well versatile – with a vocal delivery nodding to the late, great Sugar Minott. The otherworldly dubwise atmosphere offers the perfect foil for a deeply conscious message.

Stunning artwork by Kiki Hitomi.

The tape heads of the Jahtari echo machines have been finetuned, the reverb modules are rewired, the bass implant is set to maximum blast and now the third episode of our ongoing series called “Jahtarian Dubbers” is ready to rock your walkman for a long time to come.

Mikey Murka went up to the dancehall again, John Frum is back with a hauntingly beautiful dub, Maffi team up with Ranking Levy from MyLord Sound while the Jahtari Riddim Force is on the loose, El Fata rinses Tapes‘ smashing “Gold Love Riddim”, disrupt dug out a forgotten treasure from the vault and Rootah runs his tube delays into the red zone.

Wearing the black belt for beatmaking and new in the Jahtari camp is Monkey Marc (who supplied a wicked instrumental to the last Roots Manuva album). Our favourite sound system champions Mungo’s Hifi are about to blow your speakers alongside veteran Jim Nastics, plus there’s a very special Rootah version of a Dub Syndicate / Adrian Sherwood classic – with Lee Perry (!) on the mic, lazergun in hand, straightjacket and all. So better pack enough supplies for an interstellar trip – this one might take a while.

Solo Banton
“Music Addict EP”

JTR10
release date: 21.09.2011
12″ vinyl, digital

VINYL SOLD OUT! BUY DIGITAL

After three deadly discs in our Maffi series Solo Banton is back with a vengeance and a full EP, flinging big tunes, the mic and nunchuks alike with the ease of a Shaolin master that would even have made Mr. Miyagi proud.

Starting the ride, “Music Addict” is setting fire to dancefloors with an almost pyromaniac delight while still nicing up the area big time. Solo continues to spin a yarn about your friendly neighbourhood robbers in “Put It Back”, his belt buckle slashing out just as hard as the beats. Witness an epic martial arts battle in “Kung Fu Master”, when ‘Black Belt’ Banton enters the dojo, riding the knucklebuster basslines crane style and shows Jet Li how it should be done. Keeping up the fighting spirit and finishing the trip is “One Of The Greatest”, written during and about the people’s struggle for freedom in the ‘Arab spring‘ earlier this year.

All tracks have been produced by disrupt, who fills in the gaps with “Arcade Addict” and “Last Blade” to guarantee an extra-smooth overall flow of the matter.

Extra-breathtaking cover by Ellen G from MyLordSound.

“The Bass Has Left The Building”

release date: 12.03.2009
vinyl LP, CD (€ 8,99), digital

VINYL ADD CD TO CART BUY DIGITAL

On this epic voyage Disrupt is pushing the genre boundaries of 8Bit-ChipHop, roots Dub and old-school gaming soundtracks into one big swirling Black Hole of low end mayhem. Raw, ultra-shuffling drum machine action and re-wired skanks create the gateway for a mind bending reference network of retro-SciFi movies, gaming classics and Dub soundscapes in infinite loop mode. All riding on a non-stop wave of subsonic bass blasts to ensure an intense outah space trip for all the 21st Century Planet Smashas out there.

The album comes with awesome bass-artwork by Jimmy Cauty (LC).

Mastered by Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin.

The 18-track Bo Marley vs. disrupt masterpiece from 2009! A concept album filled up to its plastic rim with the craziest hit tunes, puzzling fun lyrics, Space Echo madness, overheated analog gear basslines, AMIGA tracker niceness and flashing, detail-packed dub from beginning till end.

It works like this: each one of the six Bo Marley hits gets a funky AMIGA tracker intro – check the new drift every riddim gets here! – and is followed up by a dub version by disrupt, always aiming for a new angle on the tunes.

“Berzerk Dub / Echobombing “

JTR7-03
release date: 11.01.2009
7″ vinyl, digital

VINYL SOLD OUT! BUY DIGITAL

Disrupt is back on the joysticks and having another go on the subbass highscore with these two fresh robo-skanking low-end belters.

Berzerk Dub on A is a raw Elektro-Dub-piece in the 80s spirit, driven by a simple drummachine beat, a straight, heavy bass and spooky Robot chatter. On the side, the tune not only pays tribute to the first arcade game that ever used speech-synthesis (“Berzerk“, 1980) but also to Jeff Dailey, the first person who died while playing a computer game (Berzerk) in 1981, due to a heart attack after reaching a new highscore…

The title of Echobombing on B is self-explaining. An ultra-heavy bass, that will bomb any floor, is riding a HipHop beatbox and some rough 8bit-skanks. Lots of surprising turns and twists in this one!

This 7″ is limited to 700 copies and comes with awesome sleeve artwork by Jimmy Cauty (LC).

Mastered by Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin.
