Shock Records are very proud to present 'Global Casino',
the debut album from international producer and beatmaker - Juse.
Over the last 8 years Juse's beats have provided the muscle for many of NZ's top MCs and vocalists including Savage, Mareko, Shayne Carter, Feelstyle, Hamish Clarke (Breaks Co-Op) and Scribe as well as South Auckland's newly international signed crew Smashproof. He can also be found on two of Aotearoa's most successful and revered hip hop albums Che Fu's '2B Spacific' and King Kapisi's 'Savage Thoughts' (which also included Juse's rhymes on 'Da Ula'). His own solo joints have appeared on compilations like Round Trip Mars's 'Sideways' series, Loop 003, Major Flavours 2 and 'Styles Upon Styles' from Sugarlicks.
The 'Global Casino' album is a true collaboration with Juse at the centre and transatlantic vocal contributions from Jo Jo Pellegrino, Controversy, Kaeson, Plan B, Amo and Shameless. Phrase and Daniel Merriweather represented from across the Tasman and local guest MCs Tyree, Smashproof, Feelstyle, Savage, 4 Corners, Mareko and Tyna.
The first single lifted from 'Global Casino' was the urban radio hit 'Ride 'Til I Die' by Juse feat. Smashproof and the brand new, second single is 'Same Old Issues' which features guest MCís Feelstyle, Ben Vai and up & comer Tyree. Both tracks are supported by videos.
Itís time the quiet achiever got his dues and 'Global Casino' is going to see to that.
Juse is also the Creative Producer for Woodcut Productions Limited and was the DJ for New Zealand's hottest crossover hip-hop, funk, reggae, rock and jungle band The Token Village.
