The foundations of Australian act NUBREED were laid over 10 years ago when three graf/b-boy/hip-hop dudes hooked up; Jase (Jason Catherine), Mykel (Michael Walburgh) and DB (Danny Bonnici) met while working on various music projects around the Melbourne club circuit. By this stage all three had realized that their future paths would revolve around music, but it wasn’t until they began writing and producing together, that they realized they would eventually create a career out of music as a trio.

Under the NUBREED guise, the boys have completed remixes on ‘Symmetry’ by Apex for Adam Freeland’s Marine Parade label, re-worked 80′s icons Scritti Politti on a saucy bootleg excursion as well as finding time between spliffs to team up with Phil K on the tribally-monstrous remix of ‘I’m afraid I think I’m Human’ by Ozzie pop-ravers Sonic Animation

NuBreed have released 2 singles on Zero Tolerance, ‘Welcome’, a radio-friendly vocal tune with nagging guitar riff that found favour with many of the breaks fraternity, who also got into ‘Mutst’ on the B-side. Their more recent release ‘Food For Thought’ was another nu-skool anthem in the making and came equipped with a 125 bpm tribal remix on the flip courtesy of label cohorts Dark Alley. Next up from NuBreed on the Zero Tolerance imprint is ‘R.D.C’ which is more on the electro tip and has an Apex remix in the pipeline.

On the stage, NUBREED dish up a raw, explosive and dynamic live show with mixers, effect units, samplers and all kinds of NuBreed like gadgetry. To anyone who has seen NuBreed perform so far (2000 Technics World DJ Championship-Australian Finals, Welcome 2001 amongst other various high profile gigs) will know that live really does mean ‘live’. It was due to this high standard of show that they were booked to play the Big day Out event in Melbourne, plus Two Tribes and a host of other gigs throughout Australia.
