“Seriously Positive” is Jahcoustix´s 7th long player and is a throwback to the vintage Roots Reggae Era. Staying positive in serious times and using the positivity of music to transport a profound message is the common thread of the album.
The recording approach was a counterpart to the majority of contemporary Reggae productions. „With too much programming and drum editing the music looses what it´s actually all about: Life and a certain degree of roughness that creates a raw groove and a natural and edgy feeling.“
Like with the prior album „Frequency“, Jahcoustix teamed up with Irievibrations Records to prolong the fruitful collaboration of the past years. The players of instruments are a selection of Germany´s top notch Reggae musicians from Jahcoustix´ new home-town Berlin (Evolution Band, The Magic Touch).
Further more "Seriously Positive" features 2 well known names of the international Reggae Scene (Vaughn Benjamin of Midnite and Uwe Banton).
This summer Jahcoustix will be playingseveral major festivals all over Europe followed by a Release Club Tour in autumn 2016.
Definitely one of the best releases of 2016 !
