Jahcoozi (de)

Both musically and culturally speaking, Jahcoozi are a mash up operation who have consistently managed to deliver their very own mongrel style of electronic pop music. Those behind this creative alliance are stage animal /song-writer /MC Sasha Perera (London/Sri Lanka), Beat-freak producer Robot Koch (Germany) and the bass-playing sound-techfetishist Oren Gerlitz (Tel Aviv, Israel). Songs such as Black Barbie and Fish are what gained them early recognition back in 2003, the latter having been played by the legendary John Peel. Jahcoozi's unique and ever-changing blend of avant-dub-glitch-step based sound suceeds in combining honest, communicative pop sensibilities with warm sub- basses and a crunchy, precise yet organic sound texture. With two full-length albums and numerous EPs, Picture Discs, remixes and features to their name, Jahcoozi have released music on various international labels such as Playhouse, Ninja Tune, Bpitch, Citizen Records; Crosstown Rebels, 1965 and WMF Records just to name a few. Over the years, Jahcoozi have collaborated with a refreshingly wide range of artists including Modeselektor, Asian Dub Foundation and Buraka Som Sistema. As a result of the interdisciplinary nature of their music and irresistible live show, the band has led a blazing and unrelenting trail across the planet. This intricate journey has seen them play everything from prestigious music festivals to raves in Transylvania or even an illegal bring-your-own boombox soundsystem in a Berlin underpass. Jahcoozi have managed to ignite almost any kind of dancefloor, event space or mosh pit-in-waiting.
