Jahcoozi Pure Breed Mongrel
- Words: Daniel Siwek
- Label: Kitty-Yo
Ragga-tech, click-pop: just some of the terms going 'round, but it would make sense to call Jahcoozi's stuff grime for Björk, only not nearly as gentle. Between the frenetic glitch of "Dot Com Bust" and the soundsystem toast of "Shake The Doom," Jahcoozi might please both Aphex Twin and Roots Manuva fans. And, despite underground tendencies, they manage to find pop songs buried in digital grit, something John Peel foresaw when he helped break their "Fish" EP (included here) on Kompakt in 2003. Since then, the trio (an Anglo-Singhalese MC, an Israeli bassist and a German producer) has turned their melting pot into a steamy hot tub.
