MC JaJa and MC Samoerai, had been working together for quite some time. The DJ being the backbone of Hip Hop, they knew they had to collaberate with a master on the wheels of steel. This is where Dizzy Dee (aka King D) enters the setting. Being a friend of the two MC’s and understanding each others musical tastes, collaboration wasn’t far way. Once they got together and started working on music something became very obvious: it was time to bring back the oldschool hiphop!
In December 2011 Jayeness released their first EP called “Back 2 the Basics”. Their boombap beats, funky flows and energetic delivery caught the attention of many undergound Hip Hop heads and artists, but also got quite some recognition from artists and promoters outside the hiphopscene. Their was lots of love for this European release. As the cherry on the cake their paths crossed with singer/mc Aminah who soon started joining them on stage. Not only does she bring that little bit of extra soul to the show, she knows how to f*cking rip the mic!
They proved to be unstoppable onstage, rocking shows at multiple venues as the VK, AB, Vooruit, De Kreun, 4AD etc., events, radiostations and opening up for legendary artists as The Pharcyde, The Beatnuts, DJ Afrika Bambaataa, etc.
Their latest tracks “Trip through your mind”, “The Tribe” feat. Aminah and “The Cure” can be found on the Phatmark Collective album “Friends, Fools & Family”. They are working on new material at the moment, to be released in 2015, undoubtably with Aminah at their side!
