One of the premiere underground urban music producers from the Dominican Republic. Boasting releases on his own label Stereoptico, as well as UK imprints like Fine Grains, Crackling Claps and Merci Jitter. Jorge Read is an experienced beatmaker specializing in hip-hop, electronica and his own flavour of Caribbean bass music. A Red Bull Music Academy participant in the London 2010 edition, he’s had a fair share of collaborative experiences with artists from all over the world.
Currently focusing on his side projects, such as being the driving force behind Dominican folk rap/hip-hop project Whitest Taino Alive, as well as his recent releases with prolific Dominican rapper AcentOh, Cohoba was selected to participate in the Bacardi x Major Lazer project “Music Liberates Music”. Next up is minitapes1, the first of a series where the producer will be exploring work closer to back in the day when he was jamming out beats in his bedroom for the fun of it.
