Jasper James is a 24 year old DJ & producer hailing from Glasgow who has from birth been immersed in Glasgow’s rich and vibrant music scene. Taught to DJ at just 13 by his father, Sub Club’s Harri, Jasper has grown up with access to an impeccable and wide ranging record collection of thousands from the day he was old enough to cue up a record.
Jasper has already featured on BBC Radio1’s world renowned Essential Mix radio show more than once. Not only have his productions been played by Skream in his mix, but Jasper took the reigns to provide his own Essential Mix in May 2014.
In the same year, Jasper has made various appearances on Rinse FM with both guest slots and show takeovers. As a result, Rinse FM have now given Jasper a monthly residency.
His debut release ‘Sneaky E.P’ on Optimo’s Optimo Trax label went down a storm on dancefloors over the summer with backing from the likes of Bicep, Jackmaster, Eats Everything, Richy Ahmed, Skream and 2 Bears to name a few. The E.P was also received well critically with Resident Advisor rating it a 4/5.
Artists such as Moodyman, Omar S, Optimo, Jackmaster, Skream, Eats Everything, Ame and Dense & Pika are amongst some of the names that Jasper has forged his DJ path with across Europe in a growing number of clubs of the caliber of Space, XOYO, Sub Club and many more.
Closer to home, Jasper holds the rare accolade of being the youngest DJ ever to play at Sub Club and can often be found there playing to a raucous Glasgow crowd.
