about

‘Microphones And Sofas’ is the debut album from Jago, set to drop 19th February on Tru Thoughts via the label’s fruitful UK Sound System Culture platform Sharp And Ready. Featuring collaborations with fellow members of the Sharp And Ready (and Unit 137) family - including RTKal, Ed West, Hylu, Ghost Writerz, Galak Spiritual and Bahia - alongside Chief Rockas and more, this album spotlights some of the most progressive and talented MCs, producers & DJs working in the current UK Dub, Reggae and Dancehall scene.

London born Jago grew up at a time when Jungle in its earliest forms could be heard blaring out of doors via pirate radio stations and record shops alike. Inspired by ‘90s Jungle and Ragga MC’s, ‘Microphones And Sofas’ offers up a reggae and Future Dancehall mix which pays its dues to a deep history of Sound Clash battles and cites current political issues which are hammered home by a forward-thinking future-bass sound and quick-witted and conscious lyrics.

Behind the music, the album title marks a significant period of instability in Jago’s life. Striving to develop and progress as a musician, while living in a different city from his daughter and determined to spend time with her, Jago has spent the last three years technically homeless, sleeping on sofas at different studios, rehearsal rooms and friends’ houses.
