Mix #178 By Jasper James
Emerging from his Glaswegian roots as a leading tastemaker in the new school of UK DJ, Jasper James (https://www.facebook.com/jasperjames8/) broke away from his peers (check Jackmaster, Eats Everything and Skream) to become more than a one-to-watch.
A DJ and producer with talent that goes beyond his young age, he’s crafted his own-brand of house and techno through DJ sets, most notable by his residency in London’s Club Phonox, and releases that are gaining some traction in the international scene (notably his debut EP ‘Sneaky out on Optimo’s Optimo Trax imprint).
Though only 25, his musical heritage goes back a long way. Taught to DJ at 13 by his father (Harri of Harri & Domenic) he went onto hold the rare accolade of being the youngest DJ ever to play the legendary Sub Club.

Follow up EP ‘ZTRK1’ dropped on Leftroom records, with Skream on remix duties for Motel One.

2015 has seen Jasper become much more in demand with a touring schedule filled with clubs and festivals around Europe playing with the likes of Craig Richards, Levon Vincent, Henrik Schwarz as well as Jackmaster, whom Jasper lives with back in Glasgow.
