Bong-Ra

Jason Köhnen

Also known as Bong Ra, Bong.Ra, Bongra

Profile of the performer Bong-Ra: Bong-Ra's trademark 'jungle rock' style has been moulded over the past 6 to 7 years to become a recognizable and addictive sound. Although his compositions and tracks may vary there's always an adrenaline rush of some sort buzzing around. Mostly recognized for his part in the 'Yardcore' or 'Raggacore' sub genre, his tracks differ significantly and crossover ranges of styles which have played a part in his musical development, be it Metal, Gabba, Jazz, Rave or Jungle...and so on. Most important is the energy and mood of each track produced. Since the Bong-Ra birth in 1997 there's been list of releases on various different labels such as [l=Djax-X-Beats] (NL), [l=Death$ucker Records] (UK), [l=Russian Roulette Recordings] (D), [l=Supertracks] (NL), [l=Hydrophonic Records] (IT), [l=Soothsayer Recordings] (USA) and [l=Bruchstellen Records] (D). Releasing two full length CD's in 1998 (New Millennium Dreadz) and 2003 (Bikini Bandits, Kill! Kill! Kill!). In 2001 [l=Clash Records] was set up to release vinyl series of 7-inches with hardcore ragga jungle mayhem, seeing there wasn't much of that stuff being released around that time. In 2004 second label [l=Kriss Records] was set up to release more mash-up breakcore anarchy as 4-track EP's on 12-inch. The 'Breakcore a Go-Go!' nights we're the first Dutch regular bi-monthly hosted by Bong-Ra and [a=FFF], which saw smashing line-ups running from 2002 to 2003, nowadays 'The Junglist' hardcore jungle nights in Rotterdam are the current regular monthly nights hosted by Clash Records. Probably the highlight of Bong-Ra's career is the session for the late John Peel. After having the honours of meeting the 'Godlike Genius' himself, Peel asked Bong-Ra to do a session which was aired on 21st of February 2002. Many tunes were played regularly and has been a huge help in getting the sound spread around. When it comes to the performances it's either a DJ set or an Audio/Visual set. Bong-Ra's first 'tour' with [a=DJ Scud] and [a=Soundmurderer] in the UK proved to be a success. Holland's biggest festivals (Lowlands, Eurosonic and Metropolis) we're conquered in 2003, and A/V performances at Impakt Festival, Sonic Acts and Rotterdam Film Festival and the exposition at the Museum for Modern Arts in Arnhem show the Arty Farty side to Bong-Ra.
