From the tender age of 5, Jamie "Deep J" Evans developed a taste for playing music to audiences. From helping his dad and cousin at literally scores of mobile disco's in the West Midlands in the late '80's and early '90s, the seeds were sown for the desire to play music. He aquired his first set of turntables at 15, having been an avid dance music listener for 10 years previous to that.
His first gig came in 2002 in The Palace in Swansea, playing alongside Phatts & Small. From there, he has gone on to play alongside such names as John Kelly, 16 Bit, Krafty Kuts and Fused Forces.
Having finished second in the legendary Tick Tock & Strictly Groovy's DJ competition in April 2011, he joined their ranks, becoming part of a family that plays host to such dance music legends as DJ Lomas, Hybrid, and John Kelly.
Starting in January 2012, Deep J will be launching Crossworld Records' monthly podcast, featuring tracks from across the Crossworld family, with guest mixes from a glut of talent!
Deep J also hosts a weekly show on Kick Radio, one of the fastest growing interent radio stations in the UK (Thursdays 7-8pm GMT), as well as presenting the Crossworld Records Show on Decadence Radio once a fortnight.
As a producer, Deep J has released music on Crossworld Records, Crossworld Vintage Records, Crossworld Academy Records, TekX Records, and Jambalay Records, and has seen his tracks gain support from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Funkagenda, Audiojack & many others!
His "Elements of Life" EP remained in the Beatport Top 100 House chart for 4 weeks in the Summer of 2011.
All in all, not bad for a boy from a small village in South Wales, UK!
