“Beautiful and surreal… pop music from the future”
JOHN PEEL, BBC (on the Fish Ep in 2003)

“One of the year’s most disturbingly beautiful creations”
RESIDENT ADVISOR (on Barefoot Wanderer in 2010)

“Besser als Massive Attack”
DIE TAGESZEITUNG (on Barefoot Wanderer in 2010)

“Jahcoozi ist die Art von polyglotter Band ….. wilde Klänge auf die mächtigen Bass-Säulen, auf die ihre Musik sich stützt. Wie ein Wanderer, der nach dem Ende der Welt ohne Schuhe zwischen den Klangresten umhertänzelt. Schön.”
DER SPIEGEL (on Barefoot Wanderer in 2010)

“…visceral, gritty sounding, danceable dancehall riddims, glitch-hop, and experimental techno rub up against each other like long-lost pals ..”
PITCHFORK (on Barefoot Wanderer in 2010)

“2075. Earth. The metropol club scene will sound like this…”
GROOVEMINE (on Barefoot Wanderer in 2010)

“…extraterrestrial bass thumping in the heart of the Jamaican urban landscape, Jahcoozi brings out the best in aspects that Massive Attack and Leftfield built up …….“Lost In The Bass” and “Barefoot Dub” is the best modern day dub prowess since Massive Attack’s Blue Lines”
ZAPTOWN Magazine (on Barefoot Wanderer in 2010)

“…music that moves your body, lyrics that stimulate your cerebral cortex …… as effective with the aural mystique and hypnosis perpetuated by Lee “Scratch” Perry and Massive Attack’s Mezzanine as making audiences lose their minds on the dance floor.”
URB Mag (on Barefoot Wanderer in 2010)

“atmospheric, digital dubstep all with a sound that encompasses techno, hip-hop, bassline and grime, held together by Sasha’s sharp and smoky lyrical excursions”
CLASH MAGAZINE, UK (on Barefoot Wanderer in 2010)

“a glorious product of indefinable genre creations”
URB-NET (on Barefoot Wanderer in 2010)

“The aural equivalent of a Quentin Tarentino film, the listener is lost within its swirling maelstrom of electronic gadgetry & infectious riddims…”
FOXY DIGITALIS (on Blitz n Ass in 2007)

“… their acerbic wit and cultural observation is still as sharp as on Pure Breed Mongrel. ‘Takin’ Your Street’ is the only dirty beat track that links gentrification with skinny jeans cutting off blood supply to your feet!”
FLY GLOBAL MUSIC (on Blitz n Ass in 2007)

“It would make sense to call Jahcoozi’s stuff Grime for Björk fans…. this might please both fans of Aphex Twin and Roots Manuva.”
XLR8R, US (on Pure Breed Mongrel in 2005)

“2005 has brought us a no more focused piece of hip hop satire than Asian Bride Magazine with it’a sing-along Hymen, Hymen better in tact.”
MOJO Magazine, UK (on Pure Breed Mongrel in 2005)

“The band sculpts “illectronic” bliss out of grimy shuffle rhythms, deep and detuned bass lines, and bombastic swaths of vocal attitude”
RESONANCE MAGAZINE, USA (on Pure Breed Mongrel in 2005)

“On the stage, Jahcoozi’s British-Sri Lankan “lioness”, singer / rapper / lyricist booty dancer turns heads with smartly sarcastic lyrics about stereotypes, sex and psychedelics on cult classics like “Fish” and “Black Barbie” while the mightily-dreadlocked Israeli multi-instrumentalist Oren Gerlitz strides the stage providing deep basslines while Robot chops up his razor sharp dancehall-electro in a way reminiscent of friend and fellow “BLN’” icon Modeselektor”
MIXMAG, UK (on Pure Breed Mongrel in 2005)

“One of the most progressive albums of the last few years.”
MUSIKEXPRESS, DE (on Pure Breed Mongrel in 2005)

“Homemade Surrealism”
WIRE MAGAZINE (on a Jahcoozi live show at Marke B in 2003)
