Album Review

After creating a buzz with guest appearances on the much-loved debut album from Major Lazer, dubstep singjay Jahdan Blakkamoore made his proper debut with Buzzrock Warrior, a very deep and dark effort with left-field production from the likes of DJ Rupture, Modeselektor, and Matt Shadetek. This heavy set of names is kept in check by the Anthony B.-and-Sizzla-inspired Jahdan, who through strength of will and the power of words keeps his career kickoff from being a producer's showcase. His moving observations make the grime-colored track "Mesmerized" a standout, and while he can act the cold-blooded lyrical killer on frantic dancehall workouts like "Dem a Idiot," "Runaround" proves he's man enough to deliver an R&B-based, female-empowerment song with proper conviction. The druggy, reverb-heavy "Earthshaking" is just as advertised, and with the electro-jaunty "Go Round Payola" giving way to the dreamy, orchestral closer "Rise Again," the album displays a strong curveball that lasts well into the ninth inning. Still, it's a little disappointing that such a diverse effort doesn't explore the reggae singer's more organic side further, but giving in to Buzzrock Warrior's electronic landscape is easy and in the end, very rewarding.

Customer Reviews

This is the sound of Brooklyn

Even though there are influences from all over the world on this album (reggae, dubstep, cumbia, R&B), the melding of all of this together is something that recalls Brooklyn more than anything. Listening to this album takes me to the Roti stands in Crown Heights, or the cumbia stores in Sunset Park. Jahdan tells it like it is, and doesn't pull any punches.

The Realest Out There Today...

Jah Dan is not only exceptional with his lyricism, he sings beautifully with awesome range and dexterity to his vocals. Honestly the best album I have heard this year from anyone. A lot of people like to get up there and talk that richouss stuff on the mic but Jah Dan is as good as the music he puts out.

Blakkamoore is real

Very original Jah Dan in his words and sounds tells stories of life that if you've been there yuo can relate and free up your mind

Biography

Born: Guyana

Genre: Reggae

Years Active: '00s, '10s

For dubstep fans, the 2009 album Buzzrock Warrior was singer/rapper Jahdan Blakkamoore's breakthrough effort, but his career goes all the way back to the late '90s when he was just Jahdan, a revolutionary soldier enrolled in the Boot Camp Clik. Born in Guyana but raised in Brooklyn, Jahdan met hip-hop's revered Smif-N-Wessun through the Boot Camp, and with his reggae-influenced vocals, he became the keystone of the duo's single "Sound Bwoy Bureill."
