DJ JFB Releases Signature Headphones with GermanMAESTROBy TheStudentGuide
A collaboration of style and sense!
What a year it’s been for superstar DJ JFB! With a second UK DMC Turntablist Championship under his belt, another Fatboy Slim remix, and the release of his second Megamix CD and download, he has had a busy few months! This summer will see him open the Olympic BMX stadium with live video scratching as well as playing gigs across three continents. And to top it off GermanMAESTRO have announced that they will be issuing a JFB signature headphone.
Based in Brighton, where he started the incredible Battlejam clubnight (founded with long term collaborator and UK Beatbox Champion Beardyman) JFB is known for his intricate and technical style of scratch DJing as well as his use of technology. His blend of speed and skill coupled with the infusion of cutting edge audio and visuals regularly leaves crowds stunned. This is an artist who is fully immersed in bass culture, and just as happy spinning Hip-Hop or Jungle as he is Breakbeat and Dubstep.
GermanMAESTRO are loudspeaker and headphone experts with years of experience in HiFi and Pro audio. Creating handcrafted and beautifully engineered German products is their passion. After a chance meeting it was thought that JFB would be a great ambassador for the brand as his performance mirrors the GermanMAESTRO love of technical detail. Because of his busy schedule JFB wanted a headphone he could rely on – tough enough for live work and accurate enough to remix a track on a long flight or train journey. The GermanMAESTRO Team suggested the 8.35D headphone design with Pro quality sound, near indestructible body and headband, comfy pads and a lightweight structure.
After JFB made his first promo video for GermanMAESTRO, they were so pleased that they secretly developed the JFB signature model as a surprise thank you.
When they handed over the first of what was supposed to be a very limited run, everybody involved agreed it looked and sounded so good that it should be produced as a model in its own right. Here at TheStudentGuide.com we can’t wait to get our hands (or should that be ears?) on a pair.
JFB is getting used to being ridiculously busy, with no sign that the gigs and remix work will be slowing down anytime soon! Expect to see him on trains, planes and boats feverishly beating his Macbook, with his JFB signature GermanMAESTRO JFB 8.35 D headphones clamped firmly to his ears.
Head over to our competitions page and enter by August 31 to be in with a chance of winning a pair!
JFB plays a special gig for the launch of his new headphones at Cargo London on 30th August 2012.
