Raised with a live world music influence, Yaksha realised a love for roots music from the very beginning. Inspired by mixtapes given to him by Alpha & Omega and David Corio, he began experimenting with his own productions from the age of 15.
Having played through the original ‘Tip-A-Tone HiFi’ and supported Lee “Scratch” Perry, the underlying aim for Yaksha remains to reflect upon the foundations of the culture; and, as the name literally means, to respect the natural treasures within the trees roots. Furthermore, with all tracks featuring trombone from his father, Yaksha’s music represents an undeniable inherent connection. After starting an all vinyl dubplate label in October 2019, Yaksha’s first 2 records have sold out within days of release.
“Yaksha’s sound is planted well within the roots of soundsystem music, with a spiritual, conscious message at its core.” – Nitelife Online.
