The songwriter and producer of reggae and dancehall music known as Jahzo has released his latest official single, “Dutty Wine.” The single has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. In addition to the considerable talents of Jahzo, himself, “Dutty Wine” also features the talents of popular S. African artist Swazi K. Fun, danceable, and bringing that legitimate SA reggae sound, “Dutty Wine” showcases Jahzo as one of the most intriguing dancehall music artists of summer 2019 and promises he has plenty more where that came from. The single “Dutty Wine” has been presented by Rudebwoy Entertainment.
South Africa’s Jahzo cites as main artistic influences Jamaican artists such as Mavado, Agent Sasco (AKA “Assassin”), Alkaline, Buju Banton, Bob Marley, Busy Signal and Popcaan. Jahzo’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s reggae fans have heard before. With an emphasis on rhythm and a heavy dose of mellow good humor, “Dutty Wine” by Jahzo is sure to please every longtime listener of the style.
Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Dutty Wine,” Jahzo writes, “’Dutty Wine’ shares a message of fun and happiness in the spirit of summer, making it a good jam for the season.”
Jahzo was born Khathutshelo Trevor Muambadzi in Venda, Limpopo, South Africa.
“I fell in love with dancehall music during my varsity years in Cape Town,” he writes. “It was not until 2008 that I had my first opportunity to record my first song at Rudebwoy Entertainment Studios, which I now co-own with my brother.”
From that beginning it was clear Jahzo would be a popular name in the scene. His first track featured Major and Selector Jugglin. He has said that that’s when he realized he could contribute towards the South African dancehall movement.
2011 saw the release of his popular “Dem ah Fraud” single, which received play on public radio such as Phalaphala FM and YFM. The track later got an official music video which surfaced in 2013. This was followed by “Step Weh from Bottom” and “Burn Dem,” produced by Flyweh records in Cape Town and released in 2015. 2016 found Jahzo dropping his “Where Mi Come From” single, which also aired on Phalaphala FM, YFM and Tshwane FM, and which also received an official music video in 2016. His “African Queen” 2017 single saw him paired with Ghanaian artist June Hype, with whom he shot another video, this time directed by the country’s best director, Kofi Awuah, who would go on to present this current release of “Dutty Wine.” 2018: Jahzo drops “Kuff Dem” feat. Bun Pot and Muzzla Kartel. The song goes on high rotation on YFM and other stations. Again a music video, again it is well received and makes it to Reggaeville and Channel O, as did “African Queen.”
Jahzo’s 17 track EP, “The Intro,” appeared as a free download in 2018, featuring artists like Bun Pot and Swazi K, the latter of whom is also featured on “Dutty Wine.”
“Dutty Wine” represents the first taste of Jahzo’s official debut LP album of the same name, “Dutty Wine,” which commemorates his tenth year in music. The entire album has an expected drop date of December 2019.
“Dutty Wine” was produced, mixed and mastered by Paul Hauss in Germany. Hauss has worked with dancehall artists such as Busy Signal, I-Octane, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and many more.
“Dutty Wine” by Jahzo is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, reggae and dancehall music fans.
