Jubilee has announced details of her new album.
Having featured as our On Cue artist back in early April, the Miami born, NY-based DJ and producer has revealed that 'Call For Location' will be be released via Mixpak on 1st November. Coming three years after the release of her debut album, 'After Hours', it will include the likes of previously-released singles 'Fulla Curva' and 'Mami'. Tracklist is TBA.
New York is getting a new club called The Sultan Room.
It will form part of the new Turk's Inn restaurant in the Bushwick area of Brooklyn, with the club set to be positioned behind the restaurant.
Bruce Easley, who will be programming the venue, has described The Sultan Room to Resident Advisor as a "mature playground" and compared the decor to a "time warp".
When we decided to relaunch our flagship mix series, one artist remained at the top of our hit list to kick things off from the outset. With her eclectic style of bass-focused club music arguably having more of an impact than ever before on both European and US dancefloors, Jubilee perfectly epitomises everything On Cue is intended to represent.
“Miami is inside me no matter what I do”
Born in Miami, Jubilee — real name Jessica Gentile — relocated to New York in 2003. But there’s no doubt that the city she was born in still has a huge impact on her musical output, both as a DJ and producer.
Her style of playing is also something Gentile says came to her quite naturally as a young DJ. So what advice can she offer to young DJs trying to do the same? “My only advice to DJs doing the same is to know their songs very well,” she explains. “And to actually go out and dance and see what works. Taking risks is cool but mashing up a bunch of stuff together with no flow can really just kill everyone's groove. Everything needs to flow.”
“Theatre people and I aren't really the same. I fit in more with the ravers”
Through Miami’s previously vibrant jungle raves and her own digging in subsequent years, the UK scene is also something that had a huge impact on her as an artist. “[The UK influence] is in there,” she smiles “I got really into UK music when I was a young raver in high school listening to d&b. From there I learned about two-step, garage, and then grime and dubstep. Florida actually had a really decent jungle scene, and when I moved to New York, Breakbeat Science was still open. So I was heavily influenced by the UK when I started buying records.”
