Exposed to the San Francisco HOUSE scene in 1994, Jamie Swing (formerly DJ Swing) wanted to put his own signature on the scene and in early 1995, set out to do just that. Influenced early on by Chicago House pioneers Adonis, DJ Sneak, Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, and Cajmere/Green Velvet among others, Jamie Swing developed his own sound from the Acid, Tech, Deep, and Funky sounds heard around the San Francisco Bay Area.
While playing in the local warehouse party scene, Jamie Swing quickly gained a name for himself amongst his peers. Soon after, he made his NorthWest debut opening up for Donald Glaude at the Kitsap Pavilion in Washington. He became a NorthWest favorite and continued to play at various Seattle, Washington venues over the years. He has since played for dancing crowds in Hawaii, Chicago, Miami for WMC, Burning Man, Playa del Carmen,Mexico during BPM, Tisno in Croatia, Humboldt County, and continues to play all around the underground nightlife and club scene.
After getting involved with promotions in 1997, he began throwing his own events. In 2007, he formed the collective Audio Tramps and together they threw events bringing out some of House music’s top Producers. This gave way to playing alongside talent such as Mark Farina, JT Donaldson, DJ Sneak, DJ Mes, Hector Moralez, The Littlemen, Fred Everything, DJ Heather, IZ & DIZ, Giom, Wally Callerio, LawnChair Generals, Da Sunlounge, Tom Special Interest, Jeno, David Harness, Chris Lum, Arturo Garces, Rick Preston, and Eden Lee of Kinky Movement, just to name a few.
He’s also formed the collective Sunshine People. What started out as an outdoor party has grown over the years that’s included talent like Sunshine Jones, Gavin Hardkiss, Tony Hewitt, Blakkat, Mazi and Reelsoul.
Since 2011, he’s been a Resident DJ every 3rd Saturday at Wish Bar & Lounge, a staple hangout in San Francisco known for House music. Still busy as a DJ, he’s putting his attention toward making music so look out for new beats as Jamie Swing adds 'Producer' to his name.
