JUS ED - Tribute To Mike H

Jus-ED: ”We all lost Mike Huckaby…This is my way of keeping him alive. I believe the body die’s… Yet the spirit continues. One of his Mike’s life passions and motivation was Music…All Music!

DJ Jus-Ed – Transition [UQ067]

Underground Quality boss Jus Ed is beginning 2017 in fine fettle, with Transition – his first album since 2014 – heading up a spate of vinyl releases. The triple-vinyl set is full of evocative, immaculately produced deep house treats, from the Alton Miller style intricacy of “The Loop 222 Bodin Strasse” and shuffling, yearning “The Day Prince Died”, to the rich bass and dancing drum machine hits of “Medellin My New Grooveland” (inspired, apparently, by a recent trip to Colombia), and the low-slung, Motor City grooves of “Sci-Fi Connection”. Best of all, though, is the rushing positivity of “Spring is Near”, where intertwining synth lines bubble away over a fizzing, techno-influenced rhythm track.

DJ Jus Ed / Mr. G – Goatee EP [UQ061]

For the latest outing on his prolific Underground Quality label, deep house veteran Jus Ed is joined by veteran UK techno maestro Mr G. Each producer delivers two tracks in their trademark styles. Unsurprisingly Mr G’s tracks are tough, stripped-back, atmospheric and heavy, with the hypnotic spookiness of “Freakshow” just edging out the bumpin’ beats, weighty bass and minor key chords of “Billares Londres The Rum”. In contrast, there’s an inherent tunefulness about Jus Ed’s two analogue deep house jams. Choose between the subtle steel drum melodies, sinewy synth-strings and Balearic house grooves of “GoTee Stroke”, and the ultra-deep dub house flex of “Heaven Sent”.

DJ Jus-Ed has again crossed the lines of being stereotyped or dubbed as a house music producer. He has once again taken his world travel experience and put it to music. He’s addressed all the needs for a big room dance floor in this EP. A perfect blend of House and Techno. This release is exclusively on underground quality website.

DJ Jus-Ed – Dum Jams [UQ053]

The latest transmission from Underground Quality HQ sees label boss Jus Ed at the helm on a swiftly delivered riposte to Dope Jams, having been included in the latest end of year diss list from the New York record store. That the Dum Jams 12” should arrive so soon after Dope Jams announced plans to close their store after seven years of selling records (and pissing people off) is ironic, but makes us wonder who really won here. There’s a certain degree of cultural novelty inherent in the lead “Detox mix” which is thankfully balanced out by the tougher B Side “Techno Fuck” version.

DJ Jus Ed – 50ty & Lookin Good! [UQ047]

Given his ultra-prolific work rate, there was only ever going to be one way for Jus’ Ed to celebrate his fiftieth birthday – by recording and releasing his seventh full-length proper (his second this year). For those who’ve followed his career to date, 50ty and Looking Good will hold few surprises, but that’s not to say that it’s not worth a listen. His particular brand of deep house is never less than beguiling, while there are enough forays into other areas to keep it interesting. Check, for example, the sax-laden “Man With The Red Face” style wig-out “Becky’s Jam”, or the raw, analogue acid of “OHMY”; clearly, there’s life in the old dog yet.

DJ Jus-Ed – Endurance [UQCD044]

Following numerous mix CDs, singles and doublepack vinyl EPs in 2011, jus-Ed begins 2012 with a typically impressive collection of soft-focus deep house with a rugged, floor-friendly edge. As ever, there’s a high musical content (see the haunting acid bass and twinkling pianos of “Confused Passion”), alongside rougher cuts that explore the darker recesses of early morning deep house. Take, for example, the dreamy synths and ice-cold acid of “Trip To Hamburg” or liquid atmospherics of “Mr Pete’s Cribby”. Like the rest of Endurance, they’re inspirationally melodic without losing dancefloor focus.
