Low Jack and Clara! – Les Disques De La Bretagne
Low Jack and Clara! sealed a killer first year for the mutant dancehall series ‘Les Disques De La Bretagnes’ with this very necessary double-pack including their long sold out installments for the series.
Launched earlier in 2018 as a sublabel of Editions Gravats, Les Disques De Las Bretagnes quickly became a go-to home for ruffneck, forward new spins on the Black Atlantic links between dancehall, reggaeton and electronic music. Following Iueke’s killer ‘Champion’ 12” – as played by Aphex Twin – the label extended this very handy catch up of Low Jack and Clara! y Maoupa’s 12”s packaged as a 2LP with new sleeve art.
Of Honduran heritage and based in France, Low Jack brings a unique sidespin on dancehall templates with his ‘Riddims du lieu-dit’ LP. Originally one side of a split tape with Equiknoxx for Bokeh Versions, its edits of Industrial obscurities and classic dancehall made for a rude, refreshing take on ‘80s and ‘90s digi-dub and dancehall that sold out within a week. Likewise, Clara! y Maoupa treated reggaeton with a mix of reverence and daring, twisting classic ‘90s ragga with bumping dembow while also introducing the Spanish artist as a deadly vocalist. Her Ruge is without question one of the deadliest tracks of the year – so good!!!!
