Zebra Katz, born Ojay Morgan is a Jamaican-American multidisciplinary rapper, producer, songwriter and performing artist. Morgan’s style of music can best be described as genre-defying and his multidisciplinary career as self-made.
His character Zebra Katz originally surfaced through his thesis project at the Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at the New School. Making music became an extension of Morgan’s interest in theater and culture studies, identity obsession, and the lively New York City underground arts scene around him. Morgan’s debut album, ‘LESS IS MOOR’, was released independently on ZFK Records on March 20, 2020 in the middle of the global COVID-19 health crisis, seven years after his debut single and as a culmination of his impressive wealth of experience in defining his craft.
Finding inspiration in artists like James Baldwin, Grace Jones, Nina Simone, and Little Richard, the versatile ‘Less is Moor’ was written and produced in Berlin and London. The album features several co-producers (Sega Bodega, Tony Quattro) and guest appearances (Shygirl, S Ruston). After relocating to Europe in 2017, Morgan has multiplied the influences coming together in ‘Less is Moor’ from hip hop and minimalistic soundscapes to the high-energy club sounds of drum & bass, gabber and techno. His video for ‘Moor’ was awarded as Best Alternative Video in the Newcomer category at the UK Music Video Awards 2020.
