In the X-Men universe, Jubilee is known for prowling around the mall with neon shades on, breezing by with effortless cool. Given that one of her superpowers involves conjuring fireworks, the moniker couldn’t be
more appropriate for Jess Gentile, the gifted DJ and producer known as Jubilee. Her preternatural sense of what’s popping off far ahead of the curve is only surpassed by her ability to make sparks fly in whatever room she’s in. Growing up with the sounds of Power 96, 99 Jamz and local pirate stations in her ears, Jubilee soon stormed onto Miami’s rave scene as a teenager, drawn to the community that the dance floors inspired. Even if she had to go by herself, she’d rage at weekly drum ‘n’ bass nights, and zipped to and from raves in both Miami and West Palm Beach, bumping mixtapes from locals breaks DJs there and back.
