Spearhead Recordings / London / UK
Authenticity and soul are coded deep into everything BCee puts out into the world. Any beat he lays down, any song he writes, any artist he champions, any line-up he curates—nothing has the BCee stamp of approval unless he has full belief in it himself.
It’s been this way for over 20 years, across eight albums, countless singles, EPs, remixes, and even more international bookings. As a producer, songwriter, DJ, label owner, event promoter, broadcaster—and any other role he’s stepped up to through his passion for drum and bass—Steve BCee Jefroy is driven by a pure appreciation for D&B culture and driven by how he can serve and boost its community.
The results speak for themselves. As the founder of Spearhead Records he’s nurtured and presented a myriad of new talents to the world who’ve gone onto become some of the biggest names in this game: Hybrid Minds, Netsky, LSB, Alix Perez, Redeyes, S.P.Y, Pola & Bryson and many more artists have enjoyed debuts or early releases on the label.
BCee’s music has the same high-level impact. Sitting somewhere between the soulful stars and the weight of the dance floor, his uplifting signature can range from late night breakbeat chaos to delicate compositions that smoulder with layers of feeling. Rooted in sample culture, focused on the future, and galvanised by musicianship; BCee beats balance a vibrancy, realism and an emotional pull that’s so strong, his releases are just as likely to be used for weddings and funerals as they are to be rewound in the club.
A serial collaborator with an ear for that special element that makes a track timeless, over the years he’s worked with many respected peers. From regular partners in rhyme such as Villem (as The Vanguard Project), and Charlotte Haining (who he wrote the critically acclaimed album ‘Life As We Know It’ with in 2020), to the decorated likes of Robert Owens, Hybrid Minds, S.P.Y, Riya, Bladerunner, Rocky Nti and so many more—for BCee the creative process is an extension of his community spirit as he continues to put into the scene what he wants to see in the world and what he believes in: genuine authenticity and a soulful realness.
|His release “This Time Next Year—20 Years of BCee” (2021) highlights many of these long-term collaborations with brand new remixes. Always at the forefront of new D&B, the music keeps coming throughout 2022, including “Before You/The Great Scorer” with Emba/Charlotte Haining (DnBArena); “Worship” with Jeavon (Shogun); “Picture Disc” with T.R.A.C. (Solvent); “Is It Real” with Charlotte Haining (Spearhead); and “Before You” (also with Charlotte Haining) on UKF’s latest release.

Full Spec Entertainment / Halifax / Victoria
Born n’ raised on the East Coast of Canada and founder of Full Spec Entertainment and one third of Specific Gravity, Jason Dumaresq – a.k.a DJ Slight – is no stranger to music and a good party. Always a musician, Slight has staggered from Saxophone to drums, banjo, harmonica and eventually CDJ’s. With heavy early influences such as Blues and Jazz, Hardcore and Punk it’s no wonder Slight eventually fell into the Good Ole’ Drum & Bass.
Focusing on heavy rolling basslines, melodic transitions, with just a sprinkle (heaped spoonful) of double drops, Slight brings all his musical experience and influences into a masterfully mixed, moving piece of art on the dancefloor.
