JFB (Brighton UK)
In recent years the art of turntablism has spun off in myriad new directions, with techniques such as video scratching and instant sample creation representing a dramatic sea-change for the discipline. Few artists have been further to the fore of these fresh developments than Brighton's JFB, a scratch DJ and party starter extraordinaire who won the UK DMC Championship in 2007.
Yet unlike many turntablists, JFB also knows when to stop beatjuggling and start dropping bombs - ultimately, it's all about making the people dance. Many of the tunes you'll hear him spin will be his own recordings on labels like Sludge, Hospital or One Eye Records. This is an artist who's fully immersed in bass culture, and just as happy spinning hip-hop or jungle as he is breakbeat and dubstep. Allow him free reign to do his thing with a full range of equipment at his command, and the results will be utterly groundbreaking, but set him loose on two turntables and a decent scratch mixer, and the boy will set about producing results that are just as jaw-dropping.
Catch him alongside regular collaborator Beardyman at one of their legendary Battlejam events, and you'll bear witness to spectacular improvisational skills melded to ultra-cutting edge technology. When Beardy drops a rhyme, it can be instantly sampled and scratched into new forms by the DJ, who's also capable of throwing random crowd banter, smatterings of live musicianship and even video footage of the audience into the mix.
