It’s not every day that you come across a duo like Jake Wherry and Ollie Teeba. They’ve been working together for over a decade and continue to progress and improve, to excel in the competitive world of hip hop production and beyond.
Jake Wherry grew up in South West London. A diet of jazz and James Brown provided the soundtrack of his childhood and teenage years. He naturally found himself getting into rare groove and old school hiphop and played guitar and bass in many jazz, funk and rock bands. Ollie Teeba, meanwhile, was strictly about the hip hop. He began DJing at 15, was playing out in London within a year and, in between collecting sneakers.
