Born in Georgetown, Guyana and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Jahdan Blakkamoore has long made a name for himself as a gifted and inspiring reggae/dancehall/hip Hop/dubstep artist - both nationally and internationally. His music has been described as "Urban World Music with a message." Jahdan's sense of melody, superb songwriting skills and ability to effortlessly cross over genres has solidified his status as a relevant artist in the music industry. He is a contributing writer on Snoop Lion's album, 'Reincarnated' which received a Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album of 2013. Jahdan is featured on "Boulevard", and "Harder Times", and lends his vocals to "Lighters Up" with Mavado and Popcaan. Hip-hop heads might know him from his feature with Smif-N-Wessun on the classic "Sound Boy Buriell" or his collaborations with DJ Premier, AfuRa and Dead Prez. Reggae and Roots fans may know him as a member of the group Noble Society or for his song "Cash Flow" on the Major Lazer project from Diplo and Switch. Jahdan remains focused on completing songs for his forthcoming solo album 'Upward Spiral' scheduled for release in the spring of 2014.
Repping Faction Sound Crew and leading online Caribbean lifestyle magazine LargeUp.com, Deejay Theory continues to push the DJ/producer role forward in his home base of San Francisco and throughout the world. Creating music all his life and now a key player in the explosive tropical bass movement, Theory has a natural strength for producing and flipping a broad range of formats, putting his signature touch on everything from Demi Lovato to Mavado. Think dancehall meets club music, bass meets soul, turntablism meets rave, tropical disco meets the pool, and we're literally just getting warm. Years of dedication and passion brought Theory to where he is today, and the love and labor shows. Support has been massive with an independent schedule of U.S. and international bookings and some of the top DJ's, producers and tastemakers in the industry broadcasting Theory's work on global airwaves, stages and of course the internet. Day in and day out, from the studio to the club, you know you're getting strictly quality music from Theory each and every time. Theory's current official remixes include Sizzla, Gappy Ranks, Red Fox, Blackout JA and works with Jahdan and Kush Arora. His latest collaboration, with dj J Boogie, is Brother in Arms.
