Original sound boy outta London Jstar is best known for dropping block rocking, crowd pleasing tropical beats blended with bass heavy dancehall and reggae influences and guaranteed to make you get up outta your seat. Cutting his craft in the clubs and house parties of London town, Jstar’s phenomenal ‘DJ only’ reggae remix of ‘No Diggity’ set the stage for a boundary-pushing career as a DJ and producer, remixing such artists as Major Lazer, DJ Vladm and Mark Ronson.
With over 100 productions under his belt, Jstar’s tunes are favourites on the dancefloor and regularly spun by world class DJ legends such as Giles Perterson, Grandmaster Flash and Norman Jay. His tunes invariably reach the Number 1 position in dancehall and reggae charts, and even if you don’t know the their names, the chances are you’ve danced to them in bars, festivals and clubs around the world.
Jstar continues to push boundaries with his critically acclaimed double album ‘Licensed Plates, and studio albums ‘Stand To Order’ and ‘Dub To Order’. His recent work with Chinese reggae MCs lead to an 8 date tour of China and early 2019 sees him performing live around South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Check out Jstar’s latest release Warrior EP, already holding the number one spot in reggae and dancehall charts thanks to its uncompromising vocals and dope dub edit, and catch him live in Saigon at Arcan on Saturday 26 January. Doors open at 9PM.
