hit me up if you tried my ONE OF MY mixs live at the club!!!! GIMMIE THE FEEDBACK!!!!! )___Dj jimi hype IS one of the true pioneers of the beginnings of the high energy dance music scene starting out in the western mass New England area. in 1985 DJ Jimi hype was beginning to time and beat mix nonstop dance sets and playing out shows Similar to the local nonstop 95.7 fm Friday night kiss club with icon mixer/legend programmer dj Chris Walsh.
Although Jimi’s sets were always done on vinyl records and performed LIVE, the professional DJs at this time bought these records at record stores with their hard earned money. In the late 80’s there were very few good djs because it was really expensive to have all the best newest music.
Some of the best local live “beat mixers” jimi remember in the 80’s starting out were, Teddy P, Gary Ratel, and Tony Simmons. These great pioneers of the area unfortunately pretty much faded out of the business as far as anybody knows.
Jimi held many residencies over the years starting out in the late 80’s playing intense upbeat sets of beat mixed clubhouse, and freestyle. (“Techno” was really just to be born of this time )
1989 they built large roller rink in Wilbraham ma called interstate 91 where dj jimi was able to play to 200-250 people at a time. This was basically when he knew he enjoyed playing big rooms and people really enjoyed his nonstop mix set. (jimi did do this for a couple of years but was craving more of a club scene )
The 90’s were the beginnings of an amateur club scene in the Springfield suburbs. Jimi enjoyed much success as a well established top dj playing high energy nonstop mix sets at the best newest clubs. (Like: alibis, gaslight, and lil alberts)
Around 1993 dj jimi hype was thought to be at the top of his game with his super tight and well rehearsed nonstop mixs. Then if that wasn’t enough he started making a name for himself for his party style microphone crowd control skills where he would insists that the crowd make some noise or say hoo (this did go over well to get the crowd excited) Shortly after he was approached by a florida club promoter on vacation locally. He caught jimi playing and moving the crowd and invited him to go on a paid vacation to perform couple of dates in Florida club.
Need-less to say jimi was invited back several times since and in 1995 eventually offered residency at this brand new club pyramids in Fort Myers fl this club witch held around 1200 people was dj jimi’s promotional career launch pad.
For the two years there jimi enjoyed played alongside some greatest djs the Florida scene has ever seen like: dj keoki, dj sandy, huda hudia, dj icey, mike b, dj three, Mike and Charlie, r-fresh, tony faline, and the list goes on and on.
In the 90s jimi was approached to work with Kent management out of Rhode island who had many large scale clubs scattered up and down the eastern coastal including their large new multi room complex nightclub concept in downtown Springfield. Dj Jimi Hype absolutely jumped at an opportunity to perform in his home town and to see his old friends at the new club metro zone. (during that time up north jimi performed at clubs all over the northeast ) such as club oxygen, bootleggers, and temptations among others.
Late 90’s brought many more opportunity as jimi was able score another Friday Saturday residency in fort myers fl at A NEW night club, Club Orbit. With 10,000 sqft of space and 5 bars this is was a club of clubs and he had not seen anything bigger. Until kent management called again for jimi to perform a residency at their newly built Mega Plex club on the beach on fort Lauderdale beach fl. Dj Jimi hype can highlight this as biggest most intense dj experience ever with over 75,000 sqft holding upwards of 4000 people every weekend.
As of 2000 jimi hype had now been the top performing dj in south Florida scene. From the Fort Myers west side to the east side Miami . Dj Jimi hype has performed to some of the highest levels as the dance music has evolved for decades. Jimi has held 22 residency’s in his career.
