Jahtari celebrates ten years with chilling compilation  

Sampler

Ten years have passed since German label Jahtari opened their doors and to celebrate this Disrupt and Rooth have cooked up a highly addictive – yet eerie – fourth instalment in the Jahtarian Dubbers series.

Delay and reverb experts from five continents have come together for this 12 track set that blends psychedelic dubstrumentals with swinging vocals by the likes of Jah ScreechyEl FataPupajim and Cho Cho, who sounds a bit like France’s Marina P or UK’s Hollie Cook.

JahTariUnique is a tired expression, but I’d still like to use it when describing the sounds coming from the Jahtari camp. This is certainly digital reggae rooted in the 80s, but it sounds like nothing else. It’s like Kraftwerk has teamed up with King Jammy recording an album using aCommodore 64 in an abandoned warehouse outside Berlin.

Disrupt’s Chrono Trigger is similar to ska, but at the same time it has a completely different vibe. It’s a reggae-flavoured soundtrack to an 80s video game complete with an abyss deep bass line. And Pupajim’s Nobody Can Stop We (Dub At The Pub Dubplate) sounds like an Atari-version of the mighty Cuss Cuss riddim.

This album is something else, so if you are curious about the different side reggae you need to check it, but – as stated in the press release – be aware, the set might have your Walkman batteries run empty in no time.
