Powered by Audioscrobbler™Jah Woosh (born Neville Beckford, 1952, Kingston, Jamaica; died 20 February 2011) was a reggae deejay and record producer, primarily known for his work in the 1970s.

Beckford served an apprenticeship as a mechanic before forming a duo with Reggae George, Neville & George, and auditioning for Jamaica's top producers. Unsuccessful as a duo, they both went on to solo careers. Beckford became the resident deejay on Prince Lloyd's sound system, and was noticed by producer George Bell, who took him into the studio to record "Angela Davis", now under the pseudonym Jah Woosh. Although the single was not a hit, it prompted Rupie Edwards to produce the debut album, Jah Woosh, released in 1974 on the United Kingdom Cactus label.

Chalice Blaze and Psalms of Wisdom followed in 1976, these three albums establishing a reputation in the UK.A string of albums and singles followed through the 1970s and early 1980s.

Woosh also contributed to Adrian Sherwood's Singers & Players collective.

Beckford also worked as a producer, self-producing much of his work from 1976 onwards, and producing other artists such as Bim Sherman, Horace Andy, Larry Marshall, and his old friend Reggae George. He set up the "Original Music" record label, through which he has reissued some of his 1970s material.
