After touring as Alice Russell’s guitarist from 2013, J-Felix met label bosses at Tru Thoughts who quickly snapped up the demos that evolved intothe 80’s Boogie, P Funk and RnB inspired debut album101 Reasons. This gained widespread support including Julie Adenuga (Beats 1), Huey Morgan, Don Letts (BBC6Music) FIP Radio and Jazzanova. From there on it was a whirlwind. His live show attracted support bookings for giants in the Funk & Soul world like Hot 8 Brass band, Soul ll Soul, George Clinton (Parliament/ Funkadelic) and Roy Ayers. Having a mutual love for synths and Funk made it inevitable that J-Felix and Swindle should team up - this led to a working friendship and saw J involved in writing for Kojey Radical, Mahalia and Joel Culpepper as well as appearing on Swindle’s album, ‘No More Normal’ on which he played guitars for the European tour. Amongst all this, J has released numerous remixes for various artists including Werkha and Alex Rita & Wrongtom and The Ragga Twins.
