Midlands based music producer, remixer and deejay Juttla has been a driving force on the British Asian music scene ever since he released his debut album in the spring of 1999. The story started back in the early nineties when Juttla started making drum’n’bass. He independently released his own 12” vinyl EP called the ‘Dread by Dawn’ before going on to record for a string of credible record labels including Channel 5, ZYX Records (Germany), Back 2 Basics Recordings and Second Movement, as well as having two tracks on Aphrodite’s superb ‘Full Force’ mixed CD alongside Kenny Ken, Rob Playford (the founder of Moving Shadow Records) and the legendary producer/actor Goldie.

In 1998 Juttla decided it was time to set up an imprint that could be an outlet for his productions as well as releasing music from like-minded music makers. This would be the birth of his record label Eastern Pressure Records and see the release of his debut album ‘Angels, Aliens & Assassins’. The album was well received by the media and received support from DJ’s Bobby Friction and the ‘One In The Jungle’ radio show both on BBC Radio One. Excellent reviews followed in Knowledge Magazine, Breakin’ Point and DMC’s Update. Tracks off the album have been licensed to various compilations on labels such as Nation Records and Sub Dub Records and are still being licensed out today! A string of live dates followed as well as supporting Asian Dub Foundation on their UK tour. Juttla was also one of the headliners at a top Midland’s music festival where the organisers created a ten by twenty foot billboard poster of Juttla and LATE (the rapper that featured on four tracks on the album) to promote the event!

Juttla bounced back a year later with two superb EP’s for Swaraj Records. Firstly the ‘Breakzploitation EP’ in the summer of 2000 which Mixmag Magazine rated as ‘Leftfield Tune Of The Month’ as well as DJ Magazine and M8 Magazine giving him 5/5 reviews. He then released the amazing ‘Juttfunk EP’ and went on to feature in Wax, Update, Muzik, The Big Issue, Whats On UK and even appeared on the front cover of Eastern Eye Magazine. Juttla then went on to remix such acts as Asian Dub Foundation, Fundamental, Banco De Gaia, Wayward Soul, Tarli Digital, Kam Bhamra, Awia, LATE, Cee-Rock ‘The Fury’ and Charged, making him one of the most consistent producer/remixers in the British Asian music scene.

In 2005 he hooked up with hip-hop label Wolftown Recordings to release his second album ‘Bass, Kicks, Snares, Spits’. This twenty-track CD release saw Juttla mix up his Asian influences with Hip-Hop and urban vibes and featured a superb collection of official remixes alongside his own productions. 2Pac, Notorious B.I.G, Rass Kass, Freeway, Hard Kaur, Saigon, Inspectah Deck from Wu-Tang Clan, JT The Bigga Figga, Pitbull, Slim Thug and many more all made contributions. The album was well received by the worldwide Hip-Hop community and tracks from the album featured on hundreds of mixtapes in the UK and America, as well Juttla getting interviewed for the world’s longest running Hip-Hop magazine HHC.

In 2008 Juttla returned home to his own label Eastern Pressure Records for his third album ‘At War With Satan’. This album included fourteen instrumental dubstep tracks with the singles such as ‘Sub Zero’ getting support from BBC Radio One, BBC Asian Network, Galaxy FM and numerous Internet based radio stations in the UK and overseas. The album also received a brilliant review in the UK  national newspaper Metro, as well as tracks getting licensed to various compilations including the massive ‘Lordz Of Dubstep’ and ‘The Definition Series: Dubstep’.

In 2009 Juttla’s unique production sound led to him being commissioned for a string of remixes including a brand new mix of Marshall Jefferson’s classic track ‘Mushrooms’ for the well-respected dance label Hooj Choons responsible for acts such as Felix, Rollo and JX. Marshall Jefferson has worked with the likes of CeCe Rogers, Ten City & Trax Records and is considered a pioneer of the whole house music scene. Other remixes included Dopefish ‘Big Bad Wolf’ for the legendary breaks label Y4K, a remix of the underground Hip-Hop smash ‘It’s Nothin’ by LATE featuring Willie D from The Geto Boys, the crew responsible for putting the South of America of the Hip-Hop map back in 1986, as well as remixing Stereo Nation’s collaboration with 10Shott aka Tenny Tenn entitled ‘Nach’.

A year later and the start of a new decade saw Juttla enter into his third decade actively releasing music. The year kicked off with him being commissioned to remix ‘Designer Girl’ by 10Shott aka Tenny Tenn who then went on to tour with chart-topping names such as Chipmunk, Tinie Tempah, Skepta and Mr. Hudson. Production wise, Juttla continued to his dubstep quest but this time did it with a twist enlisting the help of London rapper Manny Moscow for a five track EP entitled ‘The Forbidden Temple EP’. This EP is one of the first releases ever to mix up elements of Hip-Hop and Grime with dubstep and is another great collection of music to join the timeless discography of Eastern Pressure Records. This is the first of a string of digital MP3 EP releases from Juttla as he turns up the heat for 2010, and was one of the many reasons that Juttla got commissioned to remix the awesome ‘Heavy Rotation’ from DMC Mixing Champions The Disablists and UK’s number one live Hip-Hop act Foreign Beggars.

As a producer Juttla has worked with the biggest names in the Asian music scene, the US and UK Hip-Hop scene and legends on the dance music circuit but his talents do not end there! He is also a very well-respected DJ and has played venues all over the UK including London, Nottingham, Leicester, Leeds, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Coventry, Wolverhampton & Birmingham, playing at the legendary Glastonbury Festival twice! He is also know on the international DJ scene and has rocked dance-floors in Cape Town (South Africa), Amsterdam (Holland), Brussels (Belgium), Paris (France), Warsaw (Poland) and Rome & Sicily (Italy).

Juttla has a unique style, a unique sound and is a consistent musician who injects originality, diverseness and fresh ideas into a somewhat saturated market place. Who knows what the future holds for Juttla, but one thing is for certain, there’s no chance of him slowing down any time soon and for that you have to salute him!
