Jah Yzer

Gotta go with Jah Yzer on this one. The bearded Miami export pretty much has the whole Bay Area dancehall scene on lock. He's known for his residencies at Frisco clubs such as Club Dread and Storyville, but has been fairly busy on this side of the bridge as well the past few years, rotating in and out of the mix at Oasis' Lion Rock on Wednesdays and the Down Low Lounge's King of Kings on Sunday. Yzer is always equipped with a fresh stack of criss 45s straight from yard, and his crates hold 'nuff history, as far as roots reggae or classic dancehall goes. If you're lucky, you might even catch Yzer spinning breakbeats as if he was born to do that, too, vamping to Lowell Fulson's "Tramp" as fluidly as the latest Sizzla or Bushman dubplate.
