Take a splash of electronic madness, mix in the goodness of acoustic instrumentation and you have the makings of something special Jay Okesene & The Dubtronics!

Jay has taken Drum n Bass, Dub reggae, Dance/Electronica and Hip Hop, thrown them into a pot to cook up some delectable Dubtronica. Creative influences come from Jays local surroundings of the South Pacific the sights, sounds aromas and vibes of Aotearoa New Zealand.

This line up of Brass Section, Guitar & Bass, DJ and Vocals has brought its infectious energy to many local gigs and festivals around New Zealand. Pasifika festival in Auckland (2009/12), The Auckland International Carnival (2010), Parachute Festival in Hamilton (2011-13), The City Showcase festival in Napier (2012) and the Brisbane edition of the Scorcher Festival in Australia (April 2013).

Releasing the 7 track EP We Bring The Noise in March 2011, the single Light debuted the following month in the Top 20 for Auckland electronic radio station UP FM and the single Run being picked up in 2013 by Tomasian Entertainment in New York for the compilation 'For The Love of Dub'.  The single This Time (This Place) was also picked up by Quicksilver for their 2013 summer fashion season. The second EP is in its final stages of recording and promising to offer more up lifting feel good music that is designed to be enjoyed in any season.
