2016 has been Jasper James most successful year yet. Emerging from his roots as a leading tastemaker in Glasgow’s vibrant house scene and breaking away from his peers to become more than just a one-to-watch but a respected touring DJ in his own right. A DJ and producer with talent that stretches beyond his years, he’s crafted his own-brand of house and techno through DJ sets at some of the worlds most respected clubs like The Warehouse Project, Smartbar, Lux, Bobbeaman and Sub Club; his busiest summer in Ibiza with Circoloco, Paradise and Zoo Project; and is equally at home playing festivals such as Glastonbury, Strafwerk, Secret Garden Party and more.
Moulding his sound week-on-week via his recently finished yearly residency at London’s Phonox, his all-night marathon sets have garnered huge attention from visitors to the club and key media outlets like Resident Advisor (where Jasper polled at #81 on their annual Top 100 DJs vote), Mixmag and DJ Mag – the latter of whom named Jasper ‘Breakthrough DJ Of The Year’ at their annual Best Of British awards.
Though only 26 years old, Jasper’s musical heritage goes back a long way – a facet of his make-up that also explains his measured, mature and beyond-his-years demeanour. 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 in Glasgow. Since those early sets, Jasper has gone onto develop his own unique style to the point of being able to hold his own during b2b sets with revered DJs such as Gerd Jansen, Jackmaster and Craig Richards.
With hotly awaited music set for release in 2017 on labels such as Seth Troxler’s Play It Say It, Jasper James is ready to continue his ascent into the upper echelons of the wider electronic music scene and cement himself as one of the UK and Europe’s leading young selectors capable of working any crowd, at any time.
