Juice Aleem is long acknowledged as one of the finest and distinctive MCs the UK has ever produced. This Birmingham native has been responsible for laying some of the scene’s foundations whilst continuing to create music which pushes the art form light years ahead of the curve. Rocking stages since the early 90s, Juice first came to public attention as the original MC to sign to legendary UK hip hop imprint Big Dada, cutting the Luke Vibert produced 12” Misanthropic in 1997 under the moniker Alpha Prhyme.

Over the next ten years this would be followed by a string of LPs released on the label including the album Permanament (2000) with the group Gamma as well as Equilibrium (1999), Understanding (2002) and Universally Dirty (2006) with the group New Flesh. Boasting collaborations with Roots Manuva, Beans of Anti Pop Consortium and Gift of Gab from Blackalicious, New Flesh would achieve high critical acclaim for the unique blend of Hip Hop, Dance hall, Soca and 2 step infused in their experimental sonic voyages.

Alongside all this Juice continued to collaborate in the studio under a range of pseudonyms with a pantheon of world renowned producers (including Hexstatic, Evil 9, Dj Kentaro, Kraddy and Adam Freeland to name but a few) whilst also holding down live mic duties for electro godfathers Coldcut, dazzling crowds from Spain to Australia.

Having crafted a vast canon of genre defying work, displaying both a cultivated knowledge of hip hop’s history and a far reaching view of the future, Juice Aleem decided it was time to go solo which was followed by his debut album entitled “Jerusalaam​ ​Come”​ ​released once again via Big Dada in 2009.
