Dean's DJing career dates back to 1989 when he was first bitten by the house music bug. The years since have seen him hold residencies at many venues around his native Scotland, and for nine months in 1990/91, a radio show whilst studying in Tampa, Florida. Now more than twenty years on, his appearances are limited to special events and guest mixes for radio shows.
In early 2002, armed with a borrowed laptop and disillusioned with the print media's approach to house music, Dean launched the JJazproJect website which he ran until 2013. The over-riding principle was to create a space where people could read about the music without too much negativity. You wouldn't find disparaging reviews there, If he didn't like it he wouldn't write about it.
The profile of the website led one US based label to contact Dean in 2003 and since then he has worked on a freelance basis for a selection of labels and artists helping to create biographies and sleeve notes.
Business and family commitments mean that Dean's current schedule is very limited but he still finds time for the occasional Mix Show, which can be found here or on Mixcloud and contributes to Indamixworldwide
