JFB first started mixing and scratching on local pirate radio in 1996 playing drum&bass. He developed his style with scratching and started playing party Hiphop Instrumentals around Brighton area for a few years. In 1999 JFB gained residency at the best local Drum&Bass night in town 'Meltdown' as well as the ocasional booking at Londons 'Movement' Night. These gigs continued as well as more residencies @Oceanrooms (when it was nightclub of the year) Substance (wicked multi genra party) & Minimelt (mid week Drum&Bass) As well as scratching with a highly skilled Improvised jazz act called 'VogueGyrator' & jamming with various musicains around town like 'J'm'Black & Kirsten Elliot' These regular gigs improved JFB's crowd control skills and he gained local following. In 2002 JFB got a computer and started home music production with 3EN and formed a project Called Abstractivity. In 2003 he won the Vestax champs @Endclub as well as releasing his first ep 'NoDestination' on 'OneEyeRecords' Also 'Ritz' on 'HospitalRecords' & 'Pompayup' on 'CookshopRecords' These releases increased his profile and he started getting regular bookings abroad in Austria,Romania,Bulgaria etc.. In 2004 JFB met 'Deekline, Wisard, DonnaDee & Ills' who incorpirated his scratching skills into their music. At the same time JFB started dj gigs with Ed Solo as well as scratching for various artists like: EvilNine,Tc Islam, Brockie, PressureDrop etc. & got loads more gigs too. In 2005 JFB decided to go further with his turntabalistic skills and started Beatjuggling.. JFB entered a local dj compertion in order to win the cash prize so he could pay the rest of his rent and hosting the night was an unknown (at the time) beatboxer called 'Beardyman' JFB got beardyman to practise some new ideas and in 2006 got the VirtualVinyl kit 'Serato' This enabled him to record Beardyman Live and beatjuggle or scratch with his beatboxing. This turned into the successfull night of 'Battlejam' Which is today breaking the boundries of live/electronic music.
With 1000's of moshpit's created in front of his turntables JFB is some serious shit! Check him out! Or Book Him Now!
