Jahcoustix has all the right frequencies for roots reggae.

Sampler

German reggae singer Jahcoustix spent his childhood in several different countries in many parts of the world – Mexico, Liberia, the U.S., Kenya, Germany and Egypt. And just like when he was growing up his previous albums have wandered in several different directions, while his latest effort 'Frequency' is a cohesive set following Bob Marley’s roots reggae recipe.

Jahcoustix - Frequency'Frequency' is Jahcoustix sixth studio album and recorded with a different approach since it’s his first without his band. Instead he worked with Austrian label and producers IrieVibrations Records along with a few other producers.

The idea was to get a more diverse sound, but I’d say it’s the opposite. 'Frequency' is straight forward roots reggae with clean grooves, deep bass lines, pumping organ, kicking drums, sweet vocal harmonizing, conscious lyrics, breezy horns and memorable hooks and melodies.

Over the 17 tracks, of which one is a dub version of the excellent Apple Gabriel combination Controller and two are bonus cuts, he doesn’t stray into straight pop, balladeering, dancehall, dance music or hip-hop. 'Frequency' is uplifting and uncompromising roots reggae. Just like it should be.
