ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It’s simple. 1 DJ. 1 MC. 1 Group.

What you see & hear is a reflection of hip hop in its purest form. Original beats, rhymes & sounds.

The unlikely combo of Scooter Jack & MC Field started back in the late 90’s in the dirty hallows of the Third Coast party scene.

Rewind to 1997 Louisiana: Field had only recently begun playing out, DJing with Kaneda of Enlightened Operatives. One night, at the legendary Club Culture reggae club in Baton Rouge, the spirits were flowing & the mic was there for the taking. With Kaneda dropping dub after dub, Field began to chant the crowd into a frenzy. A successful evening solidified Field’s true calling on the stage: Microphone Controller, Master of Ceremonies, whatever . . . the birth of an MC.

While Field was busy honing his microphone skills, Scooter had been well on his way becoming a seasoned vet in Mississippi’s live music scene. He got his start in percussion at a young age and moved to drumming in a punk rock band during the early to mid 90’s. A nomadic lifestyle forced him to trade in his drums for a set of turntables in ‘97. Starting with hip hop, roots reggae, and ragga dancehall, Scooter quickly progressed into drum and bass and competitive turntablism, winning numerous competitions with his thorough mix of both.

As fate would have it, Field’s OTB (Outthabox) crew started linking with Scooter, 360 & Kaotic from the SODL (Straight Out Da Lab) family to throw shows between Monroe, LA & Jackson, MS. As the 2 crews worked side by side, developing & refining styles, they realized the theory of power in numbers & decided to join forces. This collaboration resulted in the OTB SoundSystem (SoundkillaZ). The newly formed crew clicked so well, they were able to have a random, rotating lineup that melted sound systems wherever they went.

Over the years, members began to branch out & work on separate projects, some internal & some outside the fold. Out of these experimental excursions, the Kladni Figures were born.

The Kladni (pronounced Clad Knee) Figures, Scooter Jackson & MC Field bring together 2 undeniable skill sets to form one of the most authentic sounds found in hip hop today. With 15+ years of recording engineering experience, and inspiration ranging from blues and funk to punk rock, ska & just about any other sound – Scooter Jackson brings all his influences to the table as disk jockey, producer, and engineer. Meanwhile, Field combines the experience of crowd controlling drum and bass shows with the influences like Nas, Beastie Boys & the Wu to create an eclectic sound never before heard in the South. The combination of Scooter’s skills on the wheels and Field’s unparalleled delivery provides a unique blend of sonic landscapes that is guaranteed to get the masses moving!
