Biography

Jack Splash is a time traveler. He was there when it all began, and he made the whole planet rock with Afrika Bambaataa. He had Melle Mel’s back when he was by the edge, and he used to wear them big suits with Talking Heads. And as God is his witness, or his name ain’t Jack, he told AC/DC to come back in black.

“Most of the stuff that I’ve always loved and have really been inspired by, even though musically and artistically it sounds way different, at the end of the day the energy behind it all is the same,” says Jack Splash, the auteur behind Plantlife. “We’re just an extension of that energy. That’s where that theory of Time Traveler came from.”

On Time Traveler, set for release on Decon Records, Plantlife mixes a little bit of hip-hop, funk, rock and R&B into something new, bold, and daring. As the group’s resident genius, Jack Splash makes future soul that defies categorization.

“I wouldn’t call it a hip-hop project, but it’s the energy of hip-hop that gives birth to the energy of what I do,” says Jack Splash. “It’s no-holds-barred. There are no limits.”

When Plantlife first debuted in 2004 with The Return of Jack Splash, he seemed more myth than man. The album cover was a plain lime green and white sleeve with embossed lettering. The sounds were wild and exotic – you couldn’t quite place them. “In the original release, there were no pictures . I just wanted it to be about the music, and people would both get it and dig it or they wouldn’t,” he remembers.
