Jaydawn – Darker Dawns Ahead
Preview Track: Blood of Da Slaves
The debut of one of the best and most consistent local hip hop beatsmiths. Embarking on a journey with D’Army in the mid-2000s, Fajar or Jay as he is familiarly known, has for more than a decade carried the dark, gritty grimmy boombap banner influenced by DJ Muggs, DJ Lethal, early-era Dr.Dre, DJ Premier and the Bomb Squad. His long list of works speaks volumes especially when it comes to the group that made his name, Eyefeelsix. Along with DJ Evil Cutz and Morgue Vanguard, Jaydawn is part of the production unit Napalm Squad, making him an important figure behind some of Grimloc’s hip hop albums, including “Swagton Nirojim” and “9051”, not to mention remixes for groups like Homicide and Efek Rumah Kaca. This EP is a prelude to what his following album will sound like. “Darkest Dawn Ahead” is a collection of short, compact beat tapes in the tradition of Dilla’s “Donuts” or The Alchemist’s “Rapper’s Best Friend”.
“A gem of a release with extremely high production value. The first of many Grimloc releases coming in to The Store Front!”
