About Jan Delay

Jan Delay was the reggae alias of Jan Eißfeldt, a founding member of the German hip-hop collective Beginner, famous for his signature lyrical wit and lisping, nasal voice. Born in Hamburg in 1976, Eißfeldt co-founded Absolute Beginners in 1991. Later renamed Beginner, the group first earned renown in 1992 when its "K.E.I.N.E." appeared on the Kill the Nation with a Groove mix, followed a year later by their first proper EP, Gotting. In the wake of 1996's breakthrough Flashnizm, Eißfeldt founded his own label, Eimsbush, which quickly emerged as one of the premier imprints in German rap. ~ Jason Ankeny
