This Ithaca quintet should thoroughly satisfy fans of Ozomatli, Ben Harper, and Black Eyed Peas; in many ways the Analog Sons are doing more innovative stuff than those artists. Whereas Harper, for instance, is content to merely toy with reggae beats, Jsan and the Analog Sons fully integrate deep-funk bass lines and dub rhythms into soul/hip-hop tracks.

Bio

JATAS is Dub-Soul-Sounds
****************************************************

Front man rebel charm and forthright Dub-Rock-Sound make J-san & the Analogue Sons a life-force that evokes the integrity of Bob Marley and the earthy soul of Fat Freddies Drop or Toots & the Maytals but with a whiff of something from the dub locker at King Tubby's. With the JATAS sound, one is able to quite literally “feel” the song, harkening us back to the timeless soul of the seventies...when music was still made one stone at a time.

With 3 full length albums on I-Town Records, and ENTAK Records: "Self Titled," "Sound Resistance," and their extraordinary third record "One Sound," these dub-rock-warriors are sharing their music with the world as they push forward into the ever-changing 21st century by continuing their relentless tour regiment supported by their consistent growing fan base; enjoying touring in Japan and Europe as well as here in the US.

J-san's incredibly earthy vocals are reminiscent of the great soul singers of any era, deftly moving from love songs dripping with emotion and punky reggae party anthems, to fiery protest songs that make even the hardest man send a fist up to the air in love. JATAS live show's consist of a full 6 piece ensemble version as well as a sound system (live dub) version that includes innovative modern sounds and a decidedly urban flavor that make the dance floor tremble and sway every night. The typical live show is a genre bending blend of high-grade reggae-dub, rock, electronic and roots soul. Innovative modern sounds with a decidedly retro flavor plus rootical vocal harmony. JATAS is coming to town...ring the alarm this is ultra.

History: J-san's musical journey has been a shapeshifting experience spanning 17 years of soul, rock, electro, and roots music. Son of radical vietnam veteran father and Okinawan mother J-san was raised on the road. Living at times with artists and musicians and other times with ganja growers and hustlers, music was a constant companion. J-san was an original member of EasyStar recording artists: JOHN BROWNS BODY and is currentley a guest vocalist on the new 10FT GANJA PLANT record "Bush Rock" on ROIR Records with his track "Gun A Bust". "Bush Rock" Debuted at 11 on the Reggae Billboard Charts in 2009!!!

Also in the fire is a new project grown from J-san's notorious "late nite sessions" (often seeing the sun rise as he is powering down the amps in the studio..) called DUPPY KILLER73 (live electro dub experimental sounds). myspace.com/duppykiller73.
