Nitrous (aka D-Joos) is owner of the new Montreal dubstep imprint Monkey Dub Recordings. Well established in the Montreal drum n’ bass scene, he’s played alongside many international DJs such as Concord Dawn (NZ), Kemal (UK), Klute (UK), John B (UK), Panacea (Germany), Digital (UK) and Juju (USA). His history in drum n’ bass goes back over a decade.

I grew up in Africa, “Mogo” from Ivory Coast. I came back in Marseille, Europe, in 1997 to discover the explosion of sound systems. I considerate myself as a true Shaka ites !!! I dedicate my life to sound system culture. I was introduced to “groovebox sounds and live experimentations” thanks to them.
In 2003, I bought my first gear, a Korg electribe, and started to make my own productions. I was really influenced by the sounds I was listening in Ivory Coast: Alpha Omega, Russ D, Jonah Dan, Steve Mosco, Doogie Wardrop, Mark Iration, Denis Rooticall, Jacin, The Scientist, Jah Shaka and of course the big master Mad Professor.?Now I’m living in Montréal and I’m still making my own sound, mixing uk stepper, dubstep, jungle, dnb … or whatever you can call it, techno music.
