Jaybee has a long history with Force Recordings, being there right at the start of the imprint itself. As a member of the turn of the millennium DJ Collective “Stateside Collective” alongside the labels’ founding fathers Clearwater (CLRH2O / A1-Voodoo) and Bamboo, Jaybee’s tunes were instrumental to the those first steps and helped set the tone for the countless releases to come. A decade on, He and A1-Voodoo decided to set up a Force sub-label “Stepping Forward Records” which helped start the careers of a whole new crop of Liquid Drum & Bass producers around the world from 2008 onward!
Since the beginning, the man’s been running it red as a solo artist with a laundry list breakthrough releases that have been caned by the biggest and most important names in the scene including Shimon, Dj Randall, Bryan Gee, LTJ Bukem, Marky, D Bridge, A-Sides, PFM and Random Movement and a host of so many others. He’s recently become one of DJ Randall’s go to new (although new isn’t quite the right adjective) producers in 2017 and is featured all across MAC II with some truly storming bits of music! Following on the heels of releases on Liquid V, MAC II, Chronic, Innerground, Good Looking, Rubik and more, he’s now returned once again to home base… Force Recordings!
‘Anti-Paradise’ is full force, non stop pressure. Taking every control and jamming ’em to the limit this Hardstep monster crushes it! Jaybee is known for some heavy tunes and this sits at the top of that list as one the most devastating. Watch the sound system crumble on the weigh of jaybee’s production on this one!
Following up on the flip and dialing back the intensity *juuuust* a few notches see’s ‘Bumbclot Selekta’ 2-Stepping it’s way around the place. The thick 2-step beat supports a gritty synth lead that gives way to sub slaying double note bass that booms out the close of each bar. If ‘Anti’ was the name of the game on the A-Cut, this is the rollers paradise.
