Jahnaton is a founding member of one of Switzerland’s top soundsystems: STRAIGHT SOUND. His interest in music and more especially reggae could be felt at a very young age as his started hitting the drums and picked up a bass guitar, melodies have always seemed to come naturally to him.


As all members from Straight sound and Hemp Higher grew up in the same area near Geneva, they have been family since day one: Jahnaton has been collaborating with the label since the beginning (BRAINFOOD RIDDIM, MOONLIGHT RIDDIM, etc..) and was officially signed by the label in 2012.
