Jasper James’ career has come a long way since his arrival on the scene as one of the youngest DJs to
play the legendary Sub Club. 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 figure in his own right. A DJ and producer with talent that stretches beyond his years, he’s
crafted and developed his own brand of off-kilter house and heads-down techno through extended
DJ sets at some of the world's most respected clubs. Having graced the decks with high accolades in
venues such as Fabric, The Warehouse Project, Smartbar, Blitz, Lux, Bobbeaman and of course, Sub
Club. Just as comfortable in Ibiza as he is playing a festival, Jasper represents the same whether on the big stage, or an intimate basement.
Following the success of his year-long residency at London’s Phonox back in 2015, Jasper moved up
to #69 on the Resident Advisors Top 100 DJs and continued to develop his own sound through his
‘Homework’ tours alongside compatriots Tom Trago and Bambounou, whilst playing back to back
and causing a ruckus with best friend and brother in arms Jackmaster wherever possible. To truly
understand the rare musical bond the two Glaswegians share, its recommended you check their
improvised ‘Mitchell Street’ mix series, named after the infamous shared flat just around the corner
from Sub Club.
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 he went onto hold the rare
accolade of being the youngest DJ ever to play the legendary Sub Club in Glasgow, aged just 15.
Since those early sets, Jasper has gone onto develop his own unique style, comfortable holding his
own during b2b sets with revered DJs such as Gerd Janson, Optimo and Craig Richards.
Following the success of his early releases, he has been hard at work in the studio to expand his own
signature sound, playing with a more heads down yet energized version of techno that stays dubbed
out and hypnotic but ready for a dancefloor. Keen to expand his own repertoire and knowledge,
Jasper launched his own label ‘Mitchell Street Records’ with two of his own original productions
‘Crypto’ and ‘These Are The Beatz’ with both set for release later in 2018. Immersing himself in the
A&R process, the label currently has a busy release schedule lined up with contributions from friends
both old and new. Jasper also announced a temporary move to Amsterdam this summer to continue
building ties with Europe’s 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.
