Bong Ra-Reef Teef

Bong-Ra is the performing name of Dutch breakcore musician Jason Kohnen from Utrecht. Formed in 1996, initially producing and DJing jungle music. Previous to Bong-Ra Jason Kohnen performed as bassist and drummer for stoner/doom metal band Celestial Season amongst others.


Kohnen's style contains a variety of crossovers and fusions of different genres, including metal, gabba, jazz, rave, and jungle, becoming one of the front runners of the breakcore genre, sometimes credited as "yardcore" or "raggacore", blending reggae and ragga with breakcore.

On 21 February 2002, a Peel session by Bong-Ra was aired on BBC Radio 1, which was later released on vinyl. John Peel regularly played Bong-Ra tracks after he had been sent a 4-track demo in 2000. Kohnen also got to meet John Peel in person and he considers the Peel session as one of the highlights of his career.

His second full-length album Bikini Bandits, Kill! Kill! Kill!, released on Supertracks Records in 2003, saw a cooperation with US Gyromart, creators of the Bikini Bandits. The videoclip to the track "666 MPH" aired on nightly rotation on Dutch MTV, and the album became part of a multimedia exhibition in the Museum of Modern Arts in Arnhem.
