Jah Screechy



Jah Screechy is most famous for “Walk & Skank”, a UK dancehall classic originally conceptualised in the dancehall on Sir Lloyd Coxsone sound, where Screechy first toasted over 20 years ago. The original 1984 release ‘Walk and Skank’ was mixed by Peter Chemist on the Answer Riddim for Blacker Dread and has been remixed by various producers ever since, the most notorious being the 1992 smash from SL2 ‘On a Ragga Tip’ released on XL records, an instant classic which achieved commercial success bringing the anthemic ‘Walk & Skank’ chorus to a worldwide audience.

Right now Screechy is back on the scene working with Kris Kemist on some fresh material, including an EP to be released on Reality Shock, Jahtari & Cubiculo Records. As a versatile vocalist with the stamina to survive both rave and reggae soundsystem shows, Jah Screechy stands shoulder to shoulder on the Reality Shock roster with the likes of Speng Bond and Solo Banton, described collectively by Kemist as ‘a generation of artists who grew up around soundsystems & can toast lyrics all night long’.
