Biography

Brooklyn may be littered with aspiring reggae and dancehall MCs, but few of them have collaborated with Modeselektor. Originally coming up in the Boot Camp Clique, Jahdan’s career took a pretty radical left turn when he collaborated with 77Klash on the Matt Shadetek-produced “Brooklyn Anthem.” The viral success of that tune led to further collaboration with Shadetek and his Dutty Artz partner DJ/Rupture, who decided to tap Jahdan’s melodic dancehall croon for their label’s first release. The resulting EP, We Are Raiders, features grime-influenced production from Shadetek and even a Cumbia beat courtesy of Chancha Vía Circuito of Buenos Aires’ Zizek crew; it will soon be followed by a proper artist album with more all-star production from Maga Bo and Modeselektor, not to mention guest vocals from U.K. grime king Durrty Goodz. When it comes to NYC’s burgeoning tropical bass sound, Jahdan is pretty much runnin’ tings.
