Drum-n-Bass Birthday Celebration
Jayvon - Los Angeles, CA :: Drum-n-Bass
WARNING: The frequency with which this DJ dances and smiles is contagious! Jayvon’s charisma and energy cannot be stopped when he gets behind the tables. He is a well-rounded DJ from Santa Barbara, who has recently moved to Los Angeles, and is best known for spinning Drum and Bass, Hip Hop, R&B, Old School, and a little 2-step here and there. Nowadays, there is a buzz surrounding this young, upstart DJ. Everyone is asking, 'Yo have you heard of this kid Jayvon? I picked up one of his CD’s off a friend of mine who got it at an event, and his mix is sick! I need more!' Within the last six months Jayvon has risen from virtual obscurity to being on the tip of everyone's tongue. How did this happen in such a short amount of time? Jayvon attests his sudden rise in popularity and bookings to representing a funky but edgy and aggressive dance-floor sound, a knack for knowing a potentially dangerous track upon first hearing the tune (be it popular or not), and most importantly his relentless self promotion by handing out hundreds of promotional mixes at many events, clubs, and raves throughout Southern California and through the internet. Using his business and marketing savvy in combination with his charisma and talent, Jayvon is on the verge of breaking out in a big way.
At the moment, Jayvon is focusing heavily on his foray into drum and bass, a music that is very new and exciting to him. He describes the reason for his new interest in the genre, 'Drum and Bass for me is the culmination of everything that I love about music. It pushes the envelope of what you can do with sound, yet it is extremely diverse in its style. It can be sexy or have a hip hop attitude at one moment, or move to the intensity of heavy metal or the free-natured feeling of ska the next. It is futuristic in its sound, but it evokes the most primal of emotions within us! Mixing this music is like having a full palette of color to work with on a huge canvas, there is never a dull moment! Oh yeah did I mention that I love the Bass?!'
Jayvon is not limited to playing Drum and Bass. As a general music enthusiast, he enjoys RnB, Hip Hop, Turntablism, UK Garage, House and yes, even Trance . For five years he has spun Hip Hop and RnB as a club DJ and has even won many DJ competitions. In 1999, after only one year of DJ-ing experience, he beat Ludacris' DJ in Jermain Dupri's So So Def's DJ Competition, securing first place in the process. Jayvon has also made a fan out of DJ QBert, arguably the world's finest Turnatblist, who bumps Jayvon's mixes on the regular. Speaking of QBert, Jayvon has also appeared in one of QBert's Instructional DVD's, (“Do It Yourself DVD 2”, which is available at DJ stores across the world!) where he exhibits his smooth and fluid scratching style. Wow, Drum and Bass, Turntablism, Top 40 songs, what else can this man do? Be on the lookout for this rising star in an area near you! If you get a chance to catch Jayvon in action, be prepared for addiction; even people who don’t appreciate Drum & Bass are ALWAYS impressed with Jayvon’s stellar sets.
