Tsuba / Isle Of Jura / Jura Soundsystem / Love Creation / Midnight Special
I established Tsuba in 2006 and since then have racked up over 100 12” releases from the likes of Spencer Parker, Galcher Lustwerk, Detroit Swindle and Peace Division. The release schedule may have slowed down, but the label continues to flourish with music in 2018 from Gerd Janson, Androo and Fernando. As a House DJ & producer flying the Tsuba flag i’ve been lucky enough to DJ all over the place with gigs in Japan, Korea, Ibiza, Paris, Zurich, Valencia, St Petersburg, the Canary Islands and several label parties hosting Room 3 at the world’s best club, Fabric in London.
In May 2016 i started a new label for reissues of forgotten musical gems, Isle Of Jura. First and foremost i’m a record collector and since the late 80’s have been collecting records from a variety of different genres, so pursuing this passion with a new label felt like the next natural step. With Rush Hour distributing, Isle Of Jura quickly gained a reputation for reissuing highly sought after musical gems with the first releases including Escape From New York, Brian Bennett, Holy Ghost Inc, Ozo, Chayall and Ingleton Falls. Fast forward to 2018 and there’s a sub label Temples Of Jura for contemporary original artist material from various genres and a new DJ / Production alias, Jura Soundsytem which ties it all together. The first single was a Dub track and was picked by The Vinyl Factory as one of the best dance singles of April 2018. You can follow the Jura Soundsystem playlist on Spotify which features an eclectic selection of Ambient, Dub, Deep Disco, Soundtracks, Balearic House & other worldly sounds.
My other musical projects include Midnight Special with ex-Peace Division man Justin Drake (our third EP is out early 2019) and Love Creation, a fun project for edits (005 coming Jan 2019).
