Jah Warrior

Jah Warrior is a United Kingdom roots reggae/dub production team, record label, sound system, and musical group centred on Steve Mosco.

Overview

Mosco first got interested in reggae as a teenager in Manchester.[1] He started attending sound system events in Moss Side and Hulme, before travelling further afield, experiencing the likes of Jah Shaka.[1] In 1981 he moved to London and was invited by Tim Westwood to do a reggae show on a pirate station called LWR. He also worked as a selector on the Humble Lion sound system, which in 1987 was renamed Jah Warrior.[2] In 1990 he put out an album called Warrior Dub under the name Zulu Warriors.[1] In 1995 he started the Jah Warrior record label, the first release being "The 22nd Book" by Naph-Tali,[1] followed by the album One of These Days.[3] Since 1999, he has concentrated on production.

He has since produced albums by artists such as Hughie Izachaar, Tena Stelin, Prince Alla, Peter Broggs, Trinity, Dillinger, Rod Taylor, U Brown, Alton Ellis, Anthony Johnson, Dennis Alcapone, Horace Andy, and Jah Mason, as well as dub releases as Jah Warrior, working with Dougie Wardrop (aka A. Millgate),[4][5] and Jah Warrior has become one of the leading independent roots and reggae labels in the UK.[6] His Dub From The Heart series of albums are considered some of the most interesting examples of that genre from the mid to late 90's.[3]

Jah Warrior's first release in the United States was Peter Broggs Jah Golden Throne Dubwise album on the BSI label.[7]
