JUST. US. ELEMENTS - JUSE was established in 2000 in Sydney' South West with members originating from Cabramatta, Fairfield, Liverpool and Campbelltown.
With over 20 members; older generation to new. Co- Founder Baby Juice who was originally from New Zealand, learnt how to bboy in NZ. He was breaking at the park and was approached by other bboys (Kessa, heiu, session, fimone), they connected and taught each other how to break. They were breaking on a cardboard mat that said "Mellow Yellow bananas" which they adopted the name "Mellow Yellow Breakers" and the colours of yellow and black which was the crew colours.
Eventually the name changed to JUSE - JUST US ELEMENTS, because they wanted to represent all "elements of hiphop". As one of the members (Fimone) was a rapper. Eventually the crew came across more local bboys from Fairfield and Cabramatta and went onto recruit more members - Rat, Khaly, Kito, Hung, Kamikazi, Mellan, and Carl - this would be the 1st generation of JUSE CREW and the rest is history.
JUSE entered their first national breaking competition in Sydney - Planet X Games, which was held in 2002 at Sydney Olympic Park which saw the crew making it to the semi finals . This saw the crew gain more exposure and recognition in the Australian Bboy scene for their funky, dynamic and original style and built a reputation for the crew.
Till this day, members of the crew past and present have continued to carry on the crew’s tradition in competing, judging, teaching, performing and representing nationally and internationally. Winning many titles across Australia - Shadow Wars 2009, their most memorable title as it was in our hometown – with some members also being featured on national and international TV & TVC’s and also having the honour of touring around the world (Khaly, Kamikazi).
As the years have gone by, past members have left due to other commitments, but the crew has continued to recruit new members to carry on the JUSE history and legacy.
JUSE is one of the longest running crews in Australia, this year JUSE will reach another milestone and celebrate their 22nd Anniversary and becoming apart of Australian bboy history.
