Nate Mars "Above & Beyond Dem (feat. Jahdan Blakkamoore)"
The mere mention of Brooklyn-based dancehall MC Jahdan Blakkamoore's name is enough to get the XLR8R staff excited, so we were thrilled to see that Jahdan voiced several tracks on Concentric Circles, the new album from bass producer and fellow New Yorker Nate Mars. Also featuring guest vocals from artists such as Dub War resident Juakali and UK grime MC Nika D of Virus Syndicate, Concentric Circles finds Mars brewing up a low-end strain of dubstep that leans heavy on the dub. "Above & Beyond Dem" is a quality primer, as an AutoTuned Jahdan sings sweetly over a burping synth and low-end rumble.
