Jstar is the in-demand genre-switching DJ, playing bass flavoured shakers from DnB to Dancehall, Moombahton to Dubstep, Reggae , 60’s RnB and whatever else u can think of.
Jstar hails from West London and in 2003, started an underground label delivering DJ tools and “get out of jail card remixes“ (DJ Kava) in the form of reggae remixes on 7” vinyl. Such classics as ‘No Diggity’ (5 –star rating in Mixmag), ‘DWYCK’ Wooh-Ha’ had the Jstar remix treatment and he went on to officially remix DJ Vadim, Madness, Ari Up (Slits), Mark Ronson (early Amy Winehouse reggae versions were discussed!), The Black Seeds, The Resonators, and heaps more.
“Jstar is an original don… Early dj that helped inspire the Major Lazer crew! Bad man!” - DIPLO
Airplay came from UK’s Radio 1 DJs Rob Da Bank, Huw Stephens, Don Letts, Robbo Ranx, Trevor Nelson (even daytime!), XFM, Kiss100, Red Bull Music Academy, FM4 (Austria), Radio Nova (France) Radio Eins (Germany) and many US independent stations.
Soon he was known for deep digging selections at DJ shows (often with MC Honey Brown), reggae influenced, from dancehall to dubstep (“hard to play in Europe in 2005! ”Jstar ), DnB, Jungle, Roots, Dub, Ska, Soul, Hiphop ; all sorts in-between and upside down, representing his musical upbringing…
“I love to play a classic deep dub set as much as a trip into new bass music” - Jstar.
