Jakes – the godfather of the Bristolian dubstep scene interview

It felt like a scene from ‘Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels’ – JAKES meandering Bristolian dialect set against the backdrop of the dimly lit lobby of the Le Grande Hotel. I half expected a briefcase full of unmarked one hundred dollar bills to come slamming down on the table. But, despite JAKES earning his reputation as a ‘badman’ of the drum & bass / dubstep world, any UK gangster flick ‘bad guy’ antics were kept to a minimum.

JAKES, the godfather of the Bristolian dubstep scene, had just finished the last leg of his New Zealand tour at Flow Bar in Hamilton. The Hcity Project caught up with JAKES post-show for what was intended to be a ten-minute Q&A session. However, it unseeingly developed into a two-hour conversation and a 3am burger mission, as we touched on the origins of JAKES, his plans for the future, and everything in between.
