High humidity and a consistent dose of Miami Bass music has warped the mind of John ‘somejerk’ Gregory into something more freeform than definable. Fusing elements of dubstep, jungle, footwork and IDM, somejerk has secured is place as a unique force in the bass music universe. As head of the Music Production Department at the Scratch Academy in Miami, John’s influence is being directly spread to new generations of producers. His digital music label, Signaflo, serves as a platform for his musical output as well as his peers.
In 2013, the producer received more support than ever for his musical output. MixMag selected somejerk for the Top 10 Dubstep & Grime Charts in both October and December of 2013 – both songs released through his Signaflo imprint. Also receiving support from dubstep pioneer Distance, with “Ruffington Dub” being featured in Chestcast Volume 4. Drum & Bass producer Fanu included somejerk’s jungle remix of Lorde’s “Royals” in his Beats & Breaks Podcast Volume 4.
Aside from Signaflo, somejerk has been releasing music through other digital labels such as LowRise Sound, featuring the half-step drum and bass song “Rubidium” and Ground Mass, featuring the ambient footwork song “Molly”.
