In 2016 the name JADE is one that has deep respect attached to it in Drum and Bass circles, with his EATBRAIN imprint standing as one of the most highly-regarded neurofunk labels currently releasing. His belief in the genre saw him starting to put out releases under the Eatbrain name in 2011, forging their specific and highly energetic take on dnb at a time where musical trends were moving in other directions. Forward unto now, and his work has affected the sonic landscape drastically – with Eatbrain events occurring regularly across Europe in both packed clubs and vast festival stages. Jade now stands as the head of one of the strongest identities in dnb, armed with an unrequitable urge to continually evolve and push his sound and the sound of his label into evermore dystopian future territories.
Hungarian-born Simon Gabor started unleashing his aggressive and forward-thinking style upon the world in 2004 with ‘GOT LOST’ on BSE Recordings with Matt-U, following this up in 2006 with ‘BITCH’ and a string of releases on Citrus Recordings up to his first‘VENOM’ LP dropping in 2009.
The tracks within including ‘NO CURE’ and ‘VENOM’ had an ongoing defining effect on the neurofunk genre, and are regarded as timeless classics essential to the history of dnb. Following the establishment of Eatbrain, he further explored the possibilities of the sound with tracks like ‘AUDIO HYPNOSIS’ and ‘SMASH FACE’, but most significantly he started to gather a crew of like-minded producers to release on the label and start the real growth. To date, Eatbrain has featured an impressive roster of artists, including fellow collaboratorMindscape, State of Mind, Billain, Teddy Killerz, L33, and Mefjus just to name a few.
With their STAGE TAKEOVER AT LIR 2015 being the main highlight for a huge number of festival goers, and Jade’s production re-emergence with the release of ‘RESPIRATOR’ in collaboration with State of Mind and ‘THEY ARE MUTANTS’ featuring on the ‘MIRROR UNIVERSE’ LP set – the future is a vast place for Jade and his ability to slay any dancefloor with the vision of Eatbrain.
