Even though Jakes had become a favourite at some of the country’s biggest events he soon began to prefer the atmosphere at some of the smaller, more intimate club nights. Bristol’s Drive By night at the Thekla, Lakota and Club Loco were just some of the clubs that adorned the MC Jakes name on their flyers.

Jakes, alongside his compatriots in arms DJ Dazee and Felony was hosting his own show a pirate station and performing on guest slots for stations such as Radio One. In 1997 Jakes toured Sweden with Felony to a very receptive audience, so much so that he went on to perform in Sweden on several further occasions. Apart from gigs in Sweden, Holland and Austria MC Jakes successfully toured the United States with Dazee and More Rockers.

After moving to London on demand, Jakes became the resident MC for chart topping act, EZ Rollers. This partnership saw his lyrical talent progress to another level when he recorded his own vocals as part of several releases for EZ Rollers and the now well established national act of Kosheen, (Decoder and Substance).

Still in high demand, Jakes has earned himself a regular slot at Scotland’s Club TNT and Welsh night, Escape. More recently he performed at the popular super club in London, Fabric.

With his vocals being used by EZ Rollers, Kosheen and several of the nations drum and bass DJ’s, Jakes is sure to further establish himself in a league of his own - MC, vocalist and the prodigious talent that is – MC Jakes.
