Here’s something really interesting from the Detroit duo Ahkatari. Formed of MC Ahk – cousin of Black Milk – and producer Hugh Whitaker, TJD0004 is a concept album all about espionage full of interesting reggae and dub flips with a glorious mixture of erratic story telling. It’s released on the Indian label The Jazz Diaries – hence the title of TJD0004 – who have some great other releases as well, particularly this. Definitely belongs on vinyl and you can purchase here!
Ahkatari are Butter Made agents on a mission to solve the mysterious murder of a fellow agent. The task sends them from UK to Jamaica, where they join forces with Green Llama’s Selfish, and fellow Butter Made secret agents dak & Dirtee Curt.
While dodging bumbaclarts, “fire breathing rude bwoys” and a trio of assassins, known as the three blind mice. Ahkatari meet up with the beautiful Honeydips and go face to face with the evil unknown.
Record comes sleeved with original hand painted artwork.
