DARRYL JENIFER

 More from this Band



No one would argue that the BAD BRAINS is one of the most important American punk bands of all time. Their influence is deep and wide ranging: MINOR THREAT, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, BEASTIE BOYS, LIL JON, LIVING COLOUR, MATISYAHU, MOS DEF, 311, hundreds of hardcore bands and any young punk musician. The anchor of this dynamic, powerful, innovative and soulful foursome is bassist Darryl Jenifer. Not only is Darryl considered one of the pre-eminent bassists of his era, he's also an award winning producer. Having produced two albums for famed Canadian reggae band BEDOUIN SOUNDCLASH, Darryl was honored with the prestigious Juno award in 2004 for his production work on "Sounding Mosaic". He has also produced THE IDLERS, STIFFED, MORGAN HARRIS, as well as tracks for SUBLIME, and many of the tracks for his own band the BAD BRAINS. Darryl maintains a studio in Woodstock, NY. Darryl Jenifer returns to ROIR, home to the Bad Brains' legendary debut album, to release his solo debut. "In Search of Black Judas" blasts off with hardcore riffs and monstrous grooves, delivered with classic BAD BRAINS fire and fury and the quickness to shift into downtempo reggae passages. It's a heady and intoxicating mix of sounds that continues a quest for innovation and soulful vibes, anchored by Jenifer's rock steady lines. From the stripped down rub-a-dub of "Babylon Leave Me Alone" to the dark and ominous "Trinity Rub", an excursion into post-punk-dub akin to PIL or THE RUTS, Jenifer's inventive bass builds a rock-steady foundation on each track. "Black Slavery Dayz Mosh" is a charging reggae groove featuring BAD BRAIN's vocalist HR's twisted and treated vocals. With Intricate, spacious and detailed production "In Search of Black Judas" is an aural pleasure and long awaited addition to an already grand legacy. "[Darryl]'s the musician who most influenced my playing. Though stuff I play now is in a different vein, if you listen to our hardcore tracks, I think you can hear his influence. On the knowledge tip, definitely go and see the Bad Brains every time they play. I've seen them like 50 times. I climb up on something where I can get a good view of Jenifer's hands, and just jones. He's an unbelievable bassist." - Adam Yauch of BEASTIE BOYS
