Drum 'n' Bass DJ's & Producers from Newcastle, UK.
Jake grew up listening to rock and hip-hop before being converted to jungle drum n bass by artists such as Goldie and LTJ Bukem, whilst it was the Platinum Breakz and The Prototype Years albums which brought Adams attention to the bass and the drum, before which he steadily moved from his parents 80s record collection, through hip-hop, hardcore and house. Meeting at Music College, where they had both enrolled and discovering their mutual love for smoking weed and Jungle / Drum n Bass, they decided to forge a production partnership. Contrary to expectation, Music College did not provide them with the necessary skills to produce one of the most demanding forms of dance music, so they decided to quit and refine their skills in Jakes home studio.
Before their encounter at college, Jake and Adam were already DJing at various nights around Newcastle, and after they met, they decided to promote an event together called Area 51. Meanwhile, they continued to refine their production skills, using the night to test out their tunes and give them out to other DJs. One of those DJs was none other than Leicester veteran DJ SS, who although not yet entirely convinced by the duos productions, showed an interest and gave them the motivation to keep up the hard work by leaving the door open for a potential release with the Formation camp.
The track that truly placed them into the dancefloors consciousness was their first 12 for Formation, which included the awesome steppy beast ‘Body Snatcher’s. Caned by absolutely everyone from Grooverider to J Majik, ‘Body Snatchers’ was Generation Dub's first anthem, and established them as a dancefloor force to be reckoned with, and leading to subsequent releases on Formation.
They also found the time to set up their own imprint, Propaganda, which they see as an outlet for their more experimental work under their G Dub moniker, and also a place for nurturing new artists, such as Adam’s brother Taxman. After parting company with Formation, DJ Hype approached them to join his True Playaz camp, which was an offer they could not refuse. They have now separated as G-Dub, signed to Hypes new label Real Playaz and gone their own ways to create two of the biggest Jump Up Drum and Bass producers, Original Sin and Sub Zero.
