JESuS

A new dance music supergroup has formed.
Jackmaster | Eats Everything | Seth Troxler |u| Skream
J.E.S.u.S

Distinguished in their own right, these four DJs and producers come together in a colossal experimental group to form what is the biggest group in the contemporary dance music scene.

As DJs and producers they’ve all come such a long way. In 2006, Dan Pearce (aka Eats Everything) was DJing for 7 years in Bristol; Skream was still a fledgling in the Dubstep scene; Jackmaster was up in Glasgow with his Numbers label only in its third year and Seth Troxler – well Seth was already making waves with his first EP ‘Love Bezerker’ out on Berettamusic Grey.


You can hear the ‘Bigger Than J.E.S.u.S’ shows right here on Mixcloud courtesy of Ibiza Sonica:
