The album is a tribute to traditional Jamaican music from the early days: modern produced, heavyweight roots -- reggae meets Jahcoustix' signature vocals. Frequency is an authentic record with unique features. Jahcoustix's youth was a nomad's life, spending years in Mexico, Liberia, New York, Kenya, and Egypt. He discovered music in Kenya where he began writing his first songs. After returning to Germany at the age of 20, Jahcoustix fully dedicated his life to music and ever since has been on a journey that has taken him and his songs halfway around the world. Jahcoustix has released five studio albums and played 1,000 live concerts over the last decade. His musical diversity, his steady development, as well as the recognition he receives for his work are all signs of moving towards a bright future. On Frequency, Jahcoustix provides his fans with uncompromising roots reggae. The idea and approach to this album is different from all the previous records. Instead of recording the album with his band, Jahcoustix teamed up with Irievibrations Records and also worked with some other producers to get a more diversified sound. For his 10th anniversary year of 2013, Jahcoustix will be out there to reach out to the world with his new songs and a strong lyrical message. Referring to the question about the featured track with Apple Gabriel, former singer of the legendary reggae band Israel Vibration, Jahcoustix answered: "I wanted to make a pure roots reggae record with a focus on collaborations with some of my favorite singers of the past 30 years of reggae music. Making this album was my dream and a truly heartical matter."
