Nubreed 7 – Jim Rivers


The underground’s rumour mill has been going into overdrive for the last few weeks, but it’s finally time to set the record straight. After a break of 7 years, Global Underground is to resurrect their legendary ‘nubreed’ compilation series, with rising Brit star Jim Rivers stepping up to the plate for the first album.

‘nubreed 7’ will be released on 30 March 2009 accompanied by a Global World Tour.

The DJ mix series that began in 2000, helped launch the careers of some of modern dance music’s greatest DJs – Sander Kleinenberg, Danny Howells, Steve Lawler, Lee Burridge, Anthony Pappa and Satoshi Tomiie.

Following that illustrious line up, Jim Rivers has gained a worldwide reputation for his glitchy, groovy electronic sound, with an enviable CV notching up frequent dates at clubs like Ministry of Sound, Shindig and Urban Gorilla in the UK, as well as an international schedule that’s seen him return to countless venues across the globe. His production pedigree includes Saved, Bedrock, Global Underground, Mouseville, Four:Twenty, Simple, Renaissance and Saw Recordings, and his own label, Misfit Records.

“It’s been a long search, but finally I’ve found a DJ worthy of the nubreed series, welcome aboard Jim Rivers! Jim’s DJing, original productions, and remixing make him stand head and shoulders above the current crop of DJs; he’s a true star. nubreed was instrumental in showcasing to the wider world the career’s of now legendary DJs like Sander Kleinenberg, Steve Lawler and Danny Howells and Jim will fit in perfectly with the nubreed pedigree”.

Andy Horsfield, Global Underground founder

With the mix 3 months in the making, ‘nubreed 7’ promises to establish new standards for dance compilations and looks set to launch another career into the stratosphere…

“As a fan, to hear that nubreed was to return was very exciting, but to be asked to re-launch the series after 7 years, that was something else, something monumental. I’ve been working with GU for the last 4 years and knew that they had faith in me, but I never expected to get the call. To get this kind of opportunity – and from such a well-respected label – well, it kind of blew me away… The previous releases were of such a high standard that I knew I had to deliver. Hopefully, people will enjoy it.”
