Kitachi was formed in 1993 and comprises Mark Iration, Dennis Rootical and Jack Rubles. Iration had various projects signed to Basic and Rhythm King Records, Rootical played bass with several reggae luminaries including Benjamin Zephaniah and worked with Acid Jazz Records as Hazardous Dub Company. Their debut A Strong Unit appeared on React Music’s Dope On Plastic imprint. The album fused elements of hip-hop, trip hop, house, roots and dub, and they supported its release with a European tour. Their range of influences is unlimited ? as Iration has said, their sound is about ‘the vibe’. They remixed the track ‘Heroes’ for Roni Size and Reprazent.
