“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. “Seriously Positive” was mainly written and composed by Jahcoustix and voiced on one single day.
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). This well chosen melting pot of musicians and the open minded mixing approach of producer Syrix shape the album ́s vintage sound.
The Album furthermore features 2 well known names of the international Reggae Scene (Benjamin Vaughn of Midnite and Uwe Banton). 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.“
This summer Jahcoustix will be playing several major festivals all over Europe followed by a Release Club Tour in autumn 2016.
