Since tapping out rhythms on tables as a child, Jasmeet Singh showed a keen interest and passion for music. He quickly taught himself to play the drums and dhol, and as a teenager, he began creating his own music at home on his cassette recorder.
Later in 1998 using an electronic sampler gifted to him by his parents, he created his own mix-tapes which spread amongst the Asian youth in Croydon and gained him popularity and respect.
As his popularity grew, he became much in demand as a specialist Bhangra, Jungle & Hip Hop DJ at events and clubs.
After studying sound engineering at SAE London in 2005, he worked alongside award-winning composer/producer Kuljit Bhamra, assisting him at his Redfort Studios in Southall and at events including a live performance at Stonehenge and a theatre production called Lion of Punjab at Waterman’s Art Centre for which Jasmeet designed the sound.
It was around this time that he was first exposed to deeply spiritual roots reggae and music from artists such as Yabby You, Bob Marley and Peter Tosh. The technique of Dub inspired him to explore further this way of creating and mixing music. He adopted a new name and persona – Dubtician.
Knowing very little about his own Sikh faith and background, Dubtician’s life transformed in 2008 after listening to recordings of English and Panjabi Katha (discourse) by Bhai Sukha Singh and for the first time, was able to understand the Holy Scriptures. In May of that year, he was initiated into the Khalsa.
In 2011 he set up his own recording studio complex in Croydon with help from his family. It was here that he explored further the relationship and strong resonance between dub reggae, Raag Kirtan and Vaheguru Simran.
His work later culminated in the international release of his first CD and touring roadshow The Dub Simran Experience.
