Jstar; crowd-rocking genre-switching DJ & producer

Jstar escaped a major record label and made classic reggae  /hip hop nuggets on limited 7” vinyl (No Diggity, Tooting Gangsta, ‘Wooh-star’) They made it into record boxes of worldwide DJs  Norman Jay, David Rodigan, Grandmaster Flash, John Peel, Benji B, Diplo.

Nowadays Jstar does official remixes (over 60 productions for Madness, DJ Vadim, The Black Seeds, Ari Up, Mark Ronson & more ); and DJs globally from Mexico to Manchester, Denmark to Delhi.

“Jstar is an original don. Early DJ that helped inspire the Major Lazer crew! Bad man!” Diplo
“always good to have a J-Star moment … like it.” Daddy G (Massive Attack)

A double vinyl gatefold compilation ‘Licensed Plates’ was released in 2013, and a new album is under production with releases in 2015. Get in Contact Here or at Facebook / Soundcloud /Twitter – (icons at the top of this page)

Jstar Archives #2 & Serato Space Ibiza Mix

Click bubble splosh – what's that sound? It's my webdesigner having a very long tea break

Yup no changes here, but i will be getting 'with it' soon (strobing screens and day glo downloads)

But as that wasn't as good as my last appearance there I had to do one at home – so here it is!

Starting with some cheery latin, hiphop reggae edits (as you would expect from Jstar) before some gnarly hard dancehall remixes with wibbly noises and a bit of UK garage bubblin at the end
