The drum & bass maestro has teamed up with Skeptical, LSB, and Workforce, for a thumping three-tracker EP on his Carbon Music imprint.
A master of THE deep, dark, and snappy strand of drum & bass, Jubei is the go-to name for top-flight music, having built an enviable reputation as one of the sharpest technicians of the scene. After making his debut on MC GQ’s Emcee Recordings in 2006, Jubei went on to release his high-octane material on Scientific Wax, Inneractive Music, and Coded Recordings, before signing exclusively to Goldie’s Metalheadz.
After signing to one of the most influential labels in electronic music, Jubei went on to achieve a unique feat on Metalheadz after releasing nine tracks in a single year – making him the label’s first non-album artist to release that many tracks at that point.
The influential producer then landed his first album a few years later – ‘To Have & Have Not,’ which included collaborations with label head honcho Goldie, the late Marcus Intalex, DRS, SP:MC, Flowdan, Dbridge, J:Kenzo and Youngsta. The album proved pivotal for the genre after witnessing a series of genre-defining tunes being a part of Jubei’s debut long release.
For more than a decade, Jubei continued being an important cog of drum & bass until starting his own label in 2021. Making its first release with the iconic ‘Show Me’ featuring dBridge, which for many years had been DnB’s most sought-after dubs, the label is now steadily forming its name as a staple for deep, crisp and turbo-charged drum & bass – a style Jubei has been championing ever since his debut.

For the label’s first release of the year, Jubei has brought three titans of the genre in the form of Skeptical, LSB, and Workforce on an EP called ‘Style & Technique Volume Two.’ The EP serves as a follow up to its first edition which was released in 2021 featuring Dogger, Mindstate, DLR, and his Code 3 crew member, Dakuan.
The ‘Style & Technique Volume Two’ EP begins with ‘The Rebellion’ – an immersive deep-stepper with Skeptical full of rattling bass stabs and haunting atmospherics. Rapid percussions collide with compact bass groove with Workforce on ‘The Variant’ before Jubei closes a sensational release with LSB for a blend of lush and dark elements on ‘The Source.’
