Jubei is the name on the lips of almost every top-flight drum & bass DJ. Whether it’s his solo productions, collaborations with the likes of Breakage, Alix Perez, Youngsta, Icicle, Lenzman and Ulterior Motive, or his work as a member of Code 3 (with SP:MC and Dakuan), his music features heavily in the sets of those in the know.
As a DJ, Jubei is quickly building an enviable reputation as a razor sharp technician with impeccable selection and regularly plays drum & bass institutions such as Metalheadz, True Playaz, Renegade Hardware, FWD>> and Detonate with regular trips across Europe, as well as sets at major festivals including Outlook & Sun and Bass.
Jubei's first home, MC GQ’s Emcee Recordings released his 2006 debut ‘Still There’ and ‘Harvester’, a pair of collaborations with Breakage that paved the way for another co-write, ‘The Struggle’ this time alongside Sabre for Breakage and Equinox’s Scientific Wax. A move to Newcastle brought forth a kinship with Phobia that delivered a string of releases for the likes of Renegade Hardware and Phobia's own label Coded Music, followed by releases for Shogun Audio, 31 Records, Exit Records and Critical Music that firmly established Jubei as an integral member of the next generation of D&B heavy-hitters.
Having found a fan in Goldie, Jubei was quickly snapped up and signed exclusively to his seminal Metalheadz label who wasted no time releasing his 2010 debut 'Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained EP' featuring the heavily supported 'Patience' (feat. dBridge), Project 1 (feat. S.P.Y.) and 'Alignment'. His production talents have also been enlisted to help engineer Goldie's orchestral piece 'Sine Tempus' for the BBC Proms and his ‘Classic Goldie’ TV show.
A second 'Distrust' EP for Metalheadz, boasting collaborations with Alix Perez and Ulterior Motive and a remix 12" featuring a Boddika take on 'Alignment' and Jubei's own VIP mix of 'Patience' continued the steady rise of Jubei's profile.
Jubei's most successful single to date came in May 2012 in the form of 'Say Nothin' featuring infamous Grime MC 'Flowdan'. Accompanied by an official video, this tune and it's rugged half step beat was favoured by DJ's across the spectrum with heavy support on BBC Radio 1 & 1 Xtra from the likes of Mista Jam, Target, Friction and more.
'Say Nothin' also ushered in a new style for Jubei with productions and DJ sets around the 140 BPM area following in the wake of the single's release. Jubei's 140 BPM productions have featured regularly in the DJ sets of Vivek, & Kryptic Minds, and Tempa artists J:Kenzo & Youngsta, who have also both been working on music with Jubei.
