- J.O.E.

Bio:

My introduction to Dance music was at an early age through my siblings, who gave me an early education in Hardcore, Jungle, DnB, House, Hip-Hop & RnB. Tapepacks and pirate radio recordings gave me a thirst for underground sounds of the early 90s. My brother n I got a pair of belt drive turntables in 1995 and I was hooked on mixing instantly! We would collect the latest Jungle and emerging DnB and after a few years i began to play local clubs and venues giving me the buzz for the music even more! Fast forward to 2003, I enrolled on a music production course to begin my next obsession which was making beats, this is where i met friends and fellow label owners Conrad Subs and 4D. In 2004 I won the "cutting room" on L-Doubles' 1Xtra show and featured on the Xtra bass tour cd of the same year.With a few DnB releases on a digital label in the late 00s as DJ i.C., I extended my writing credits to some Hip-Hop, Grime and Dubstep for local artists covering two mixtapes. In 2016 I signed a track to Mic Righteous' debut album "Dreamland" also DJ'ing and hosting on the subsequent Dreamland tour.After a break from producing DnB until late 2016, I began writing new tracks and released kitchen beats 1, which was a free collection of all styles of DnB. Fullyenjoying writing again, I joined forces with Conrad Subs and 4D to launch and co-run Triplicate Audio. Now in 2017 I've released an E.P on Triplicate and also featured on the debut release alongside label artists Conrad Subs, 4D and Auxetic. I also have forthcoming releases planned on Figment Records and Default Recordings very soon...
