JAHCOOZI & SEB MILDENBERG AT PROGREZO’ SHOW ON DI.FM | EXCLUSIVE ON 27TH MAY 2011
At age 18 after finishing school, Seb began his journey into music working at his father’s recording studio as the “sound engineer assistant”. This relationship with the “art” of making music gave place for Seb to know what he wanted from ther on. Not too long after he started to participate in underground parties that develop his musical skills and quickly took him to share booth with several of Colombia’s most popular DJ’s. Thereafter Seb’s work as a DJ became more professional and his versatility and particular style while managing the dance floor took him to the best clubs in Colombia giving him the opportunity to play with artists such as Pole Folder (Belgium), Stel (Greece),Tonio (Germany), Logiztik Sounds (Uruguay), Distaff aka Bs As Deep (Argentina), Reix (Venezuela), Marco Lenzi (London), among others.
He has also participated in must recognized radio shows such as Progrezo Sounds by Frisky Radio, Progrezo Records on DI.FM, Destino Bogota Kubic Radio (Argentina), Pure Lov.e Sessions by Ibiza Global Radio, as well as, released tracks of his own in different labels.
In 2008 Seb had his first international DJ performances, touring in Argentina where he had the chance to play in clubs like Shamuna (Bahía Blanca), Chocolate Club (Bahia Blanca), Amerika Decibels Club (Buenos Aires) and shared booth with many of the most important DJ’s over the country.

A poly-rhythmic paradise of liquid harmonics to be poured into the ears. jahcoozi’s music is as original as the phonetic imagination of their name.
Those behind this creative alliance are song-writer /mc/singer/stage-animal sasha perera (london/sri lanka), beat-freak producer robot koch (germany) and the bass-embodying sound-tech fetishist oren gerlitz (tel aviv, israel). both musically and culturally speaking, jahcoozi are a mash up operation who have consistently managed to deliver their very own mongrel style of electronic pop music.
They met during a long, coal-fuelled winter in berlin back in 2002 and jahcoozi have been making music together ever since. songs such as black barbie and fish are what gained them early recognition back in 2003, the latter having been played as a cd-r by the legendary john peel. ‘beautiful pop music from the future’ is what he said back then, and that still applies today.
It’s jahcoozi’s pop sensibilities that makes them such a solid group that give even the most elite of electronic music producers a run for their money, especially with lead singer/mc sasha perera’s beautiful melodies and skanking rhymes.
Jahcoozi’s unique and ever-changing blend of dub-glitch-step based sound succeeds in combining an honest, communicative pop appeal with warm sub- basses and a crunchy, precise yet organic sound texture. with two full-length albums ( ‘pure breed mongrel on kitty-yo, 2005 and ‘blitz ‘n’ ass’ on asound in 2007 ) and numerous eps, picture discs, remixes and features to their name, jahcoozi have released music on various international labels such as kitty-yo, asound, playhouse, ninja tune, bpitch, citizen records, crosstown rebels, 1965 and wmf records just to name a few.
Over the years, jahcoozi have collaborated with and been remixed by a refreshingly wide range of artists including asian dub foundation, stereotyp, modeselektor, siriusmo, oliver $, rqm, king cannibal, mochipet, rustie, buraka sound sistema, missill, m sayiid , lexie lee, d-double, tinchy stryder, lethal b, kano, jme, skepta,ata + sasse, cassy, luomo, new flesh, infinite livez, alhaca soundsystem, hannah holland and chris de luca vs. phon.o,
The versatility of jahcoozi’s music and their irresistible live show has led the band on blazing and unrelenting trail across the planet and has seen them play everything from world-renowned music festivals and clubs, raves, squats and even bring-your-own boombox parties in a berlin underpass. they somehow manage to morph almost any situation into a people-power style happening. this probably explains why they’ve been been booked to play shows as far-fetched as at the televised opening of the iffa athletics world cup at berlin’s brandenburg gate as well as at london’s infamous club institution, fabric or montreal’s mutek festival. as they tend to play a variety remixes/versions/ bootlegs of their own songs as well as other unreleased material they’ve made purely for love and fun of ripping up the dancefloor, jahcoozi’s live show can be a bag of surprises even for their most arduous fans.
Having toured in 5 continents since the release of their last album, in 2009 jahcoozi released two vinyl eps and bln 4 jpn, a compilation album available exclusively in japan and including a number of unreleased tracks.
He band have just finished off their 3rd album which will come out on 19th april 2010 on ellen alien’s berlin label bpitch control.
