Jah Ghatti to release new EP early 2014



The reggae music artist known as Jah Ghatti is slated to release his new extended-play record album in February of 2014. The news comes from sources close to Jah Ghatti’s own record label, D.O.V. Production (usually stylized D.O.V Production). It is currently unknown how many tracks will be featured on the new Ghatti EP, but it will be the most significant release from him since his official YouTube video, “State of Mind,” hit the Internet in December of 2013. His “State of Mind” song is expected to be showcased as a single from the upcoming EP, perhaps as a title track.


A longtime music fan and performer of contemporary reggae, Jah Ghatti has been crafting songs in music studios for many years, and performs often onstage in Europe and abroad. One of his most talked about appearances in recent days was at the Afrika Karibik Festival in Aschaffenburg, Germany, on August 16 of 2013, from which myriad videos have been made available for viewing online.


Jah Ghatti was born Delmar Valentine in the Grantspen area of Kingston, Jamaica. Grantspen has long been considered one of the most dangerous places in the Caribbean in which to make one’s home. Having resided now for some time in Frankfurt, Germany, Jah Ghatti often takes time in his music to speak about growing up in the ghetto, about how to rise above one’s own circumstances, and that, as his song relates, “Ghetto is a state of mind.” He is renowned for writing positive and enriching lyrics to uplift the individual in today’s tumultuous society.


Jah Ghatti’s new EP is expected to be published online around the world circa February, 2014.
