disrupt feat. Solo Banton
[Nur englische Version dieser Biographie verfügbar]
After a few years of experimenting around with the most different equipment and styles (from Gabba over Digital Hardcore to Techno and Electronica), disrupt finally discovered Dub as the one universal way of music. From the lack of money came the idea of producing own Dub music with the obvious (and back then also the only) tool at hand - a cheap laptop. The first attempts on tracks in this veine were released in May 2004 on the highly recommended Phonocake netlabel as the A Fistful Of Dub EP. This release turned out to become a small surprise hit which gave enough motivation to pursue the whole thing further on and eventually start the Jahtari label together with Rootah in November 2004. Since 2007 a heap of vinyl releases followed: releases on Werk, Scotch Bonnett and Police In Helicopter, two solo LPs, many EPs and 7"s (alongside Maffi) and an album with Soom T which took the two of them touring around the globe over the last two years. Right now disrupt is heavily getting into building his own music gear DIY style to see what real voltage and old-school microchips can do to Dub and Reggae in an otherwise over-digitalized age. So better stay tuned - there's no end in sight for future goodness!
Solo Banton started MCing at the age of 11 as a younger MC on his brother's sound system King Shamma International. Experimenting with rap/hip hop for a while in his teens, he finally joined Majestic Sound and was the soul selecta with Shadey aswell as the MC with Daddy MG. After forming a great friendship with Kris Kemist from Reality Shock Records, Solo voiced a heap of hit tunes, with no end in sight. Currently working on an album the vibes are far from over.
