A name synonymous with neurofunk – Simon Gabor aka JADE has been making waves in the drum&bass scene since the early 2000s, leaving his mark on legendary labels like Moving Shadow and Black Sun Empire Recordings. It was through these early releases, and continuing through the rest of the decade, that Jade pioneered the emerging sound known as ‘neurofunk’, which was still finding its identity. Jade’s unique and aggressive style earned him a place amongst drum & bass’s finest producers, while his impressive skills as a DJ saw him touring Europe and beyond as one of Hungary’s most sought after musical exports.
2011 saw Jade take his next step toward global domination, with the establishment of his own label EATBRAIN – a forward thinking imprint standing at the crux of heavy dancefloor rhythms and the razors edge of drum & bass. With a unique aesthetic and the expertly curated creative direction of Jade, Eatbrain has quickly grown into a global movement within the drum & bass community, with the support of the genre’s finest. In just a few short years, Eatbrain has released music from heavyweights like Mindscape, Black Sun Empire, State of Mind, and Neonlight, while supporting the rise of newcomers such as NickBee and Teddy Killerz – to name only a few. It’s clear, at this point, Jade will continue to shape the direction of drum & bass music for years to come.
