Jared Viranyi aka. Jc Vee
-Electronic Music Producer
-Bcom student at University of Witswatersrand
Jc Vee is a South African DJ/Producer who is on his way up to the top of the international electronic/dance music scene.
Born on August 6th, 1992, Jared Chance Viranyi had a very normal up bringing. Attending public school and eating corn flakes for breakfast, Jared was just your "average" child growing and although he might not have shown any specific talents from a young age, he always had the ability to achieve the most incredible goals.
He had always shown a deep love for music, spending hours in front of the CD player listening to a variety of all genres. Through the years his taste in music changed a lot but somewhere along the line he was introduce to electronic music. Although this was not necessarily out of the ordinary for a teenage boy in this generation, it did play a great part in defining the path that he would choose to follow and the person he would become.
The "Jc Vee Journey" started at the tender age of 12. One of Jared's friends played him a deep house song called "Discolification" by DJ Cleo, and Jared instantly fell in love with the genre. He spent a lot of time looking up new deep house music to learn more about the genre however that was only up until his father bought him a "House Anthems" CD. The new electronic dance genre had him even more hooked. Never before had he experienced a CD that had each song mixed into one another, and he loved the idea of there never being a gap between songs. This was where his passion for mixing arose.
Over the rest of his schooling years Jared spent a lot of time researching top DJs, music styles, DJ equipment and mixing technics. He knew that if he wanted to go anywhere with his love for music and mixing he had to acquire as much knowledge about the profession as possible. During his schooling years he deejayed and many 16ths, 18ths, as well as school fashion shows etc. However once he graduated to high school he decided to go to kick it up a notch and try a more "hands-on" approach. He did a DJ course at Soul Candi Institute of Music as well as Retro Music. During his time at Retro Music Jared's DJ mentor, Ian Credible, taught everything and more that he needed to know in order to fulfill his aspiring dream of becoming a world class DJ/Producer.
Jared was always a bit of a shy child growing up but when it came to the music he enjoyed, he always seemed to get an uncontrollable excitement in sharing his music tastes with others. So from this one might be able to make sense of why Jared became a DJ, he loves the rush of a large crowd going crazy for the track list he is sharing with them.
What makes Jared a cut above the rest is not only his love for music and the art of mixing but also his constant ability to evolve as trends change. This along with his sharp, well trained ear and desire to gain increased knowledge about music styles, different types of equipment and many DJ personalities will push him to the top of the international DJ charts.
