About Jahson

Jahson The Scientist Jahson The Scientist is a “wordsman” who sees no limit to his form of expression and has been described as a Spoken Word Artist, MC and anything in-between. Raised in both London and Montserrat (Caribbean), The Caribbean introduced him to freestyling and writing rhymes and London deepened his connection to music by crate digging for vinyl, becoming a DJ and being part of MC and DJ collectives.

His presence today is steadily growing and is recognised both as a solo artist being named Star of the Week and as a front man, with Scattah Brain, Best of 2016 and with Sketches on Duality FM4’s Soundpark Act of The Month, May 2019.

The Scientist is known for his presence on stage and his ability to create songs in the moment with inspired use of word-play, with metaphors and double-entendre. The lyricist uses no standard formula or single genre of music, centred around Hip Hop his words float between jazz arrangements, afro beats and occasional rock riffs.

You can find him performing with a variety of bands such as SK Invitational, 16-piece Hip Hop Big Band, Woody Black 4, clarinet quartet, or infront of The Ruff Pack, trio consisting of Stephan Kondert (SK Invitational), Daru Jones (Grammy Award winner with Jack White) and Matthias Löscher (Lauren Hill, Nas). They have appeared together on FM4’s Acoustic Session with The Ruff Pack .

Since first hitting the stage with his band at school, he moved forward to perform before The Roots, Inner Circle and GZA and artists such as Oroh Angiama (MD Corinna Baley Rae, Tom Jones) and physicist/rapper Holunder (Blumentopf). Audiences from London to Den Hague, Washington DC to Taiwan have witnessed his performances, which combine live instrumentation with samples/beats or just the naked word. The Scientist often gives the listener a view through the keyhole on “black” matters, the riddle of Adam from atoms, culture, science and spirit.

After his first release with Psychic Phenomena on their Slipstream EP, which won 2 UK Hip Hop Awards, he has subsequent releases including “Electric Mind State” Scattah Brain (DuzzDownSan) and “Spectrum” Sketches on Duality (9Star Records). Additionally, he is featured on released “Times In A Rush” with Soia and Mez on FM4’s Tribe Vibes Exclusives Album (Sony Music Austria), SK Invitational’s Golden Crown (Kopfhörer Recordings) and appears on Yasmo’s Amadeus Nominated Album “Kein Platz Für Zweifel” (! Records).

Jahson has performed around Europe in a variety of festivals including DonauInselfFest (FM4 Buhne), MQ openings (winter and summer), Soundcity Festival, ImpulsTanz (20th Anniversary) and Soundframe Festival (10th anniversary) and is set to perform in many festivals in 2019 including Popfest, Waves and AfrikaTage.
