jstar-js025lp-back-2

The chances are, if you’re a DJ, a reggae aficionado, or vinyl collector, you will have heard of Jstar, and one the hundred remixes he’s produced for over the last 14 years. The chances are, even if you are not any of those mentioned, you’ve probably unwittingly heard one of his remixes in a bar/ club / supermarket

Since his phenomenal ‘DJ only’ reggae remix of ‘No Diggity’ hit the dance floors, London producer Jstar has been blazing trail of high quality productions ever since.
Not restricted to the ‘mashup’ style that many others followed in his wake, Jstar has remixed high end artists from Mark Ronson, Major Lazer, DJ Vadim and Madness amongst others.
With over 100  productions on behalf of major record labels such as Sony, to various independent releases, Jstar’s artistic output has been consistent, played by the likes of David Rodigan, Gilles Peterson, Norman Jay, Grandmaster Flash, across the world in festivals, clubs , bars and radio, from New York to New Zealand.

As well as producing, Jstar is a well established global DJ from London with over 15 years experience rocking dancefloors around the world mixing up bass music, Tropical beat and Dancehall with reggae influences.

“Jstar is an original don. Early DJ that helped inspire the Major Lazer crew! Bad man!” Diplo

STAND TO ORDER (LP & DUB E.P.)
Now Jstar has teamed up with stable of talented singers and MC’s, and stuffed an album full of catchy vocal hooks and melodic earworms for his first studio album, Stand To Order’ and Dub Ep ‘ Dub To Order’

 

With one foot in the 3 minute world of pop and the other in the world-a-reggae, this succinct and well rounded production rides smooth like a well oiled vintage Rolls Royce. By joining forces with UK reggae producer/ engineer Nick Manasseh (Roots Garden) and his regular cohort Andy J Jones (Acid Jazz), Jstar has produced a surprising blend of tracks including Spanish, French and Cantonese in a distinctly UK style.

Jamaican heritage MC Ranking Joe also appeals to today’s yout in the horn skunking Bad Boy Stepping, Brixton sound system veteran Brother Culture tells a tale of a mafiosi Cosa Dubstra in the parody ‘Deadly Dance’. Scotland’s diminutive but vocal powerhouse Soom T proclaims her independence and sympathetic ear on ‘Stand To Order’ as Denmark’s Kinck outs her lover’s misdemeanours in the gypsy infused ‘Liar Liar’. Romania’s Mahala Rai Banda make an appearance with French/Spanish MC Tomawok bragging the ‘Real Apache Style’. Called “the most important Chinese reggae release of the year” Hong Kong’s MouseFX incants a Cantonese request for human connection in ‘Baby Fan Ying’ (Bei Di Fan Ying). Blackout JA sets a mellow dancehall tone, and the unparalleled Spikey T pays Aswad a homage on ‘Babylon Children’

Liar Liar feat. Kinck
