“Lee Perry’s ‘Blackboard Jungle: From Dub to Dubstep'”

A mini documentary featuring Lee Scratch Perry, Subatomic Sound System, Jahdan Blakkamoore, Dubblestandart (plus interview footage with Rusko and live clips of Jahdan with Major Lazer)

1973, Jamaica.  2009, to the world!  The story of the seminal dub album “Blackboard Jungle” from Lee Scratch Perry and King Tubby that was cornerstone of the dub music craze that would extend around the world.  In 2009 Vienna’s dub masters Dubblestandart called on Perry to revisit the vibes.  This collaboration stretched around the globe to involve New York City’s dub scientists Subatomic Sound System & rising reggae vocal talent Jahdan Blakkamoore, and resulted in the first ever original dubstep tunes from Lee Scratch Perry plus a journey back into the Blackboard Jungle!

Jahdan Blakkamoore BUZZROCK WARRIOR album release party!


The album drops September 15th, and on the 17th Que Bajo?! is throwing a party with special live performance by Jahdan, accompanied by super producer extraordinaire and deejay Matt Shadetek.  Jahdan & Matt are also getting ready for some touring and special performances later this Fall and into the Winter. Dates and details will be here soon. For now, come enjoy the party! On the same night, we are also blessed with the appearance of the great Eddie Stats of The FADER and GHETTO PALMS series. Eddie Stats is sharp, efficient, and just ridiculously good behind the decks. DJ Rekha of Basement Bhangra will also be live with tunes for the all around dance floor massacre. Dutty Artz family/Que Bajo?! resident deejays/two of the wickedest sound men I know Geko Jones and Uproot Andy will be in the building serving their usual, tremendous heat, along with some blazing refixes. facebook RSVP here.



A grimy mix of hip-hop, dancehall, electronic, dubstep,and pretty much anything else with chest-caving bass, Brooklyn’s Jahdan Blakkamoore is a vocalist who’s taking that pan-global headknock from neon-coated Philadelphia warehouses back to NYC, where cohort DJ/Rupture kicked this shit off almost a decade ago. It helps that he’s dragging it kicking and screaming through the streets. Blakkamoore’s Buzzrock Warrior has a hip-hop-centric noir feel that matches the darker, moodier topics it covers:…

Head over to the Village Voice blog SOUND OF THE CITY to read the feature on Jahdan and download an MP3 of “The General (Remix)” featuring Smif-N-Wessun’s General Steele.

I could be mistaken, but I think Jahdan youtubery jukebox-ad was built by a Romanian fan. Not much to see, just a sweet example of how the internet works.

Pentru cine nu stie Jahdan Blakkamoore o arde foarte complex, in alta ordine de idei a colaborat cu DJ Premier, Afu-Ra, Dead Prez pe partea de hip hop, cu Noble Society (in care a fost si este membru), Diplo & Switch (Major Lazer) pe partea asta reggae, dancehall, roots, dubstep etc.


Just in case some dutty artz podcast subscribers haven’t gotten the new mixtape from Jahdan, here it is rendered as a single mp3-file. You should know by now, Buzzrock Warrior drops September 15th, but until then, enjoy the collection of songs and freestyles on the Bazooka Shot mixtape.  Think of the tape as the album before the album, because it’s just that good. Props to all involved, the artists/producers – Shadetek, Rupture, Geko, Klash, Spoek, Nate Mars, Joker, Subatomic Sound System, and let’s not forget Moonraker International Super-Phonic Hi-Fi Field Marshall No Partial Sound System Collective! ha.
