Jag’s musical interests began at a young age, with his first love being the electric guitar. At 14, he formed a band, and it was here that he began to develop his sound-shaping skills. But it was when he relocated to the US that he found his true calling in electronic music, inspired by Orbital and Future Sound of London.
The South Florida dance scene of the mid 90’s was where Jag made his name behind the decks, becoming a regular DJ at parties and clubs in the area. His first major gig came at the Ultra Music Festival in 2001, helping set up a stage with his audio engineering partner and where he played to a packed party crowd.
In 2005, Jag completed a two-year course at the School of Audio Engineering in Miami, but decided to develop his knowledge further, going on to complete a BC degree in Audio Engineering in London.
Musically speaking, Jag is hard to pin down. The influences of Jag’s diverse career can be easily heard throughout his releases and number of remixes. His Booka Shade’s remix ‘Regenerate has been rather successful, placing itself in the first top 20 in the Beatport remix contest. Currently, Jag is releasing on his own flagship ‘Seva Records’.
When djing, Jag pays particular attention to track selection and is known for his meticulous mixing approach. Jumping from genres such as deep house/techno, vocal and tech-house, minimal to techno, each track highlights his ability to adapt to different areas.
But as much as he is a fan of contrasting styles, Jag claims that he avoids ‘classifying’ music – as he likes to sum it up concisely, “what’s good is good”.
