JDubs - aka Ben James - began making music at just 13, MCing and eventually hosting RDU's $ Mix hip-hop show before catching the attention of Shapeshifter's Devin Abrams.
The breakthrough came when he was offered a spot alongside partner-in-rhyme MC Aeries on Devin's third solo album as Pacific Heights.
Dubs' work impressed, and now comes his crafted release out on Shapeshifter's record label, Truetone. JDubs uses music as a tool to gently but powerfully push a message of love and forgiveness - with a view to waking people up to the system that controls the way they think, feel and act.
Treasured by the music's maker is the smile that often forms between the ears that hear it - Dubs says he hopes people who listen to his album or see him live will absorb positive energies from its vibrations.
Most of the beats are produced by JDubs' good friend, London-born Charles Kickens. With input from Sacha Vee, Pacific Heights, Parks and P-Money, JDubs brings a flowing vibration flavoured with hip-hop, drizzled with jazz - from the soul, for the soul.
