Jacky Murda is a true international Junglist. He was born in Hawaii, his dad was active in the military for 20 something years, so he moved around a lot..H moved to Montreal in 1994 and stayed there some years. He started cutting dubplates and mastering vinyl in 1998 , on a lathe he rebuilt and customized over the years. He moved the cutting studio to Brooklyn nyc in 2001…and in 2003 started touring a lot in Europe…in 2005 he moved over to Europe full time, and sold my nyc cutting room to my apprentice Tim Xavier.
