JFB (3 X UK DMC DJ CHAMP)
JFB is definitely an artist to regularly look out for. His successes have mainly been obtained from his technical ability to smash lots of differently styled events, crossing all the musical genres from Jazz, Funk, Soul, Hiphop, Dubstep, Glitch Hop, Electroswing, Ghetto Funk, Breakbeat, & Drum & Bass.
In recent years the art of turntabilism has become very popular again with new equipment and techniques such as video scratching, instant sample creation and midi button bashing, representing a dramatic change in direction within the discipline for more musical ears. Few other artists have been at the forefront of these fresh developments than Brighton’s very own JFB, a scratch DJ and party rocker extraordinaire who has won the UK DMC Championships in 2007, 2011 and 2015!
Yet unlike many turntablists, JFB also knows when to stop beat-juggling and start dropping bombs - ultimately it’s all about making the people dance. This is an artist who’s fully immersed in bass culture and therefore many of the tunes you will hear him spin, will be his own special edits and remixes.
He has a multitude of successful videos on Facebook & Youtube, with millions of views! You can check out JFB's scratch routines, live gigs, tracks, video scratch routines & collaborations.. see for yourself by typing 'JFB' into youtube or google.
JFB has collaborated with many respected artists, such as doing remixes and dj mixes for Fatboy Slim who quoted 'JFB is the thinking man's Grandmaster Flash'. Plus he was the resident scratch DJ for Rob Da Bank on Radio 1 during 2013/2014. Not to mention his partner in crime Beardyman where they have joined forces for their many Battlejam projects.
Production wise apart from remixing for Fatboy Slim, he has had many releases and compilations ranging from Swing, Hiphop, Dubstep, Ghetto Funk, Breakbeat & Drum & Bass on many labels including: Hospital records, Ministry Of Sound, Rat Records, Skint Records, Freshly Squeezed, Hot Cakes, Jungle Cakes, Ghetto Funk & many more…
In conclusion, if you let JFB loose on a pair of turntables and a mixer, he will make sure your party goes off with a double bang…producing mind blowing results that are just jaw-dropping!
JFB will be lecturing at United DJ Mixing School Melbourne in Jan 2020. More ...
