I-Jahbar & Bokeh Edwards
Duppy Gun’s prime MC I-Jahbar and Bokeh Version’s head honcho Bokeh Edwards (DJ) team up to bring their twisted, futuristic dancehall and dub soundsystem music to the UK for the first time. Born in the Truro District, Westmoreland (Jamaica) I-Jahbar started DJing, MCing and dancing in his local communities in the mid-90s. He first teamed up with Duppy Gun (LA/Jamaica based experimental dub/dancehall collective) after a meeting with The Congos in 2013, and to this day continued a strong relationship with the collective; collaborating internationally and toasting over various producers beats, as well as working to foster other local Jamaican artists in his community. Bristol-based Bokeh Versions have been solid supporters of I-jahbar and Duppy Gun productions, releasing the stunning ‘Miro Tape’ last year alongside constant slews of genre-bending soundsystem music. We can’t see what they come up with together on the Counterflows dance floor.
