Live Rubber Johnson performs as anything from a 2 piece DJ set to a 10 piece Live funk act. RJ are guaranteed to bring an instant party vibe and complaints from the neighbors, where ever they perform. 2006 saw RJ’s debut performance at Summafieldayze as well as a couple of smaller club performances with Elsewhere and Platinum. This was then followed in 2007 by performances along side Sneaky Sound System as well as the Quicksilver Pro and a product launch for Arnette Sunglasses at the Oxford Art Factory in Sydney.
Throughout 2008, RJ enjoyed regular radio play of three of their tracks on local radio and spent much time back in the lab working on further productions. During this time they managed collaborate with Washington DC funksters “The All Good Funk Alliance” and in late 2009 released their first collaboration track and vinyl release on Super Hi Fi out of the USA, with the track “Man With A Jam Plan“. This collaboration saw AGFA on the production and RJ on the vocals, presenting a party anthem vibe with Hip Hop influences, everything that they had set out to capture. This release also came with a remix by another crew of Washington DC heavy weights “Fort Knox Five” and to top it off, the flip side had a further remix by Kraak and Smaak. This release put RJ out into the international funk/breakbeat arena and gained positive feedback from many.
To follow this release, RJ then offered to do a remix of the track and this was later released in 2010 charting in the Beatport Breakbeat Chart at 54 in it’s first week. It also gained much praise from industry heavyweights with 5/5 ratings and remarks like these coming from Jalapeno Records Label Manager/Trevor Mac “Rubber Johnson mix is up my strasse, real funky” and “That’s my version, i will play for sure, loving this Electro touch!” from breakbeat producer Jayl Funk.
2010 continues with Rubber Johnson working hard in the studio on further collaborations with AGFA and Fort Knox Recordings. RJ’s own ‘official’ debut release with Respect Music Records “U Can’t Stop The Rubber Rocket” is released early on 2013 with remixes by All Good Funk Alliance, Fingerlickin’s very own Slyde and Dutch House Producer Phonic Funk. This release will be the catalyst in a string of RJ productions rolling out over 2013.
