Jacky was first known for his jungle prowess alongside Rcola (now of JungleX) & Liondub (now running Liondub International) via vinyl releases through Chopstick Dubplate in the early 2000s. After making the move to Barcelona, Spain – he linked up with Kion to start their Little Island project, and started making heavily reggae influenced dubstep – voicing the likes of Gregory Isaacs & General Levy. He then joined forces with Max Powa of Austria to work on a live dub project, JingBong Ting – which gave rise to the immense single with vocalist Top Cat, “Sundown,” which was finally released to the public this Spring, and is available for purchase here.
Jacky has also gone on to enlist fellow junglists Aries (UK) and Tuffist (NYC) in a regrouped Chopstick Dubplate crew, releasing some new remix work for UK dancehall MC YT on fledgling ragga jungle label Run Tingz Recordings. Even more recently, they’ve done a remix for the Dirty Dubsters of forthcoming release “Chant Down Babylon” ft Chip Fu & Screechy Dan:
We had the pleasure of bringing Jacky here to the Spiritbar in Nelson BC last January, and you just might be lucky enough to see him here again next winter – so keep your eyes peeled!
