Jah Tung, one of Australia’s most versatile and exciting reggae artists, has just released his first single and animation video from his self-produced album, Digital Degeneration. The title track is a commentary on a society moving towards an unnatural, dystopian future where humanity is replaced by a synthetic imitation.
In the song, Jah Tung embraces digital sound, realizing that it’s impossible to escape the limitations of his recording equipment and software. He balances it with a few analog recordings and samples where necessary to create a unique sound that bridges gaps between reggae, hip hop, and dancehall communities.
The lyrics are thought-provoking, painting a bleak picture of the future we’re heading toward if we continue on this path. With backing vocals by Yasmin Forrester and mixed and mastered by Douglas Wardrop of Conscious Sounds, Jah Tung’s “Digital Degeneration” is a must-listen for anyone who enjoys powerful lyrics and a fresh, diverse sound.
Jah Tung’s rising success in the music industry is well-deserved, with four consecutive Music Victoria Award nominations and collaborations with high-profile international reggae artists. His self-produced album, Digital Degeneration, will be released on June 23, 2023, featuring all-star guests, including Kabaka Pyramid, Bugle, Pressure Busspipe, Micah Shemaiah, and Tamika. Take advantage of the chance to experience Jah Tung’s unique sound and message.
