When Drum & Bass met Reggae it spawned a whole new field of interest for the new school of producers who were addicted to taking foundation Reggae music and marrying it with rolling Drum & Bass. It’s un-pretentious approach to reinventing the ideals of Reggae into something that the UK ravers could hold as theirs has shown once again that Drum & Bass will never die and Selecta J-Man is one of these producers who is working with the Reggae greats.
It’s fair to say that Selecta J-Man has been welcomed into the scene with open arms by a wealth of established artists, perhaps most importantly good friend Aries who has kept a steady workload throughout his career and was instrumental in bringing J-Man’s sound up to par and introducing him around the world of Junglists.
Selecta J-Man’s releases have centred around Born On Road with the common championed theme of Reggae and Drum & Bass – Cease and Sekkle EP being his biggest release to date – but we don’t forget his first releases on Run Tingz Recordings and also his remix duties for Boom Sound and Chopstick Dubplate. With his consistently bright attitude to making great tunes that punch hard and his commanding presence behind a set of decks, Selecta J-Man is a Drum & Bass Junglist who is here to stay.
