Jahtari LP 10 review

After their highly acclaimed album „Dis Side Ah Town“ Roger Robinson and disrupt are
returning with a reel full of new tales about survival in a Dog Heart City. These stories,
delivered in Robinson’s full vocal spectrum between low-end dub poetry tremors and haunting
falsetto singing, are trying to make the invisible lives visible: giving people affected by
gentrification, racism, unemployment and low wage work a sense of authority and aesthetic
nobility.
Each song on this album became a story in that city, while the record itself is like the city
holding these stories. “Nightshift” tells about the workers who clean the buildings where power
is held, and the contrast between their lives and where they clean. “Flowers” comments on the
rate of young black men getting killed, where another victim dies even before the last
mourning flowers have dried. There are stories about tower block life, the claiming of a
postcode or how the city wears a Swastika like a proud badge in Post-Brexit UK.
This beautiful LP collects a pile of special riddim cuts from the Jahtari vaults, from re-edited
classics by Bo Marley, unreleased gems by John Frum to completely new experiments, all
lovingly dubbed live and soaked in analogue goodness by disrupt.
Stunning hand-painted cover art by Kiki Hitomi.
