In case you missed Jubilee’s jubilation at DJing for the 69 Boyz at our party last year, here’s yet further evidence of her love of the Miami sound. In this mix for djz, she places classic artists Maggotron, DJ Laz and 2 Live Crew alongside her own remixes and new takes on the sound.
Here we have 43 minutes of non-stop party rock showcasing her Miami bass and breaks influences, manifest in two tracks from her new EP, Pop It!. Both “Overtown” and the EP’s title track conjure the sweaty, strobe-lit spaces where Jubilee reigns supreme with sassy vocal samples and unrelenting breakbeats.
Mixpak fam Nadastrom were in Miami for Ultra Music Festival last month, and thankfully had their live set recorded. This is one of those mixes where you may wish you were there and you won’t be able to find out what hardly any of the tracks are, but it’s worth it, packed full of tracks from the duo themselves, Schlachthofbronx and Munchi.
Jubilee’s first EP for Mixpak drops on April 10th and the whole record, complete with Rizzla and 5kinAndBone5 remixes, is up for the listen now.
A South Florida native, Jubilee’s roots run deep through out the EP, housing influences from Ghetto Breaks, Miami Bass, Electro and Freestyle. The title track, “Pop It!,” is an understated party track, building slowly to a mass of 808, cowbells, vocal samples and classic synths that would make DJ Laz proud.
Alongside the title track sits “Overtown,” fittingly named after the Miami area that inspired the bass scene, a manicure anthem with drum patterns that stride through tinges of UK Funky and Dubstep before flying back to Miami on its synths.
As if the bass didn’t already run deep enough in “Overtown,” Massachusetts producer Rizzla intensifies the low end in a remix that swings from hyperactivity to near standstill, spinning round the vocal snippet. Rounding off the EP, LA/SF duo 5kinAndbone5 twist the tune upside down, introducing a futuristic koto riff before building into a Bubblin’ synth breakdown.
