The son of Aotea Rocker Tommy Ferguson, Juse's love for music started early, the product of spending his early years growing up in the nightclub environment. At the age of 13 he bought his first turntable for $5 and set about reconstructing it with plywood. With an old tape deck he experimented with cutting and fading – a process made much easier today with the technology available.
This led to DJ work and he became the resident at Escape, a popular early nineties Ponsonby nightclub. At 18 years old his vocation was obvious and he was also DJing for Dam Native, the legendary and celebrated hip-hop innovators. After a period as part of the Auckland collective The Token Village that included his work with Messrs Kaps and Fu he helped establish and became creative director of Woodcut Productions. They are a well-regarded outfit and thriving business responsible for a wide range of musical services including TVCs, channel idents and music for film and TV both locally and internationally, chances are you’ve heard their gear without even realizing it!
Juse has also written a critically lauded score for Black Grace Dance Company as well as working with Renee Geyer, K'Lee, Slave and Otis, Tere Moana, Four Corners, Tyna, Sola Rosa, Submariner and Manuel Bundy. His championing of the South Auckland MC Tyree and his crew Smashproof in New York to music executive Kirk Harding has resulted in a joint venture Move The Crowd Records that resulted in the signing of Tyree to Universal in Australia and NZ.
