Sock Hop Throwback featuring DJ Jubilee

DJ Jubilee

DJ Jubilee is a leader of the New Orleans bounce movement and stands for all things New Orleans. From call and response jams like “Get It Ready” and “Back That Thang Up” to his newest hit “GitOnDaFlur”, DJ Jubilee is the indisputable king of bounce.

Born Jerome Temple and long-time Special Education teacher at a local high school, Jubilee was discovered by area producers Earl J. Mackie and Henry F. Holden while performing at a school dance. He soon signed to their Take Fo' Records label. DJ Jubilee's debut cassette, Stop Pause, appeared in 1995, followed later that same year by the full-length DJ Jubilee & Cartoon Drew. After returning in 1996 with 20 Years in the Jets, he issued Take It to the St. Thomas two years later.
