After 15 years rocking clubs of every size well into the wee hours, Denver-based veteran, jf has taken a step back from the weekly grind and rigorous travel schedule to hone his sound, and the results are starting to show!
Formerly based out of NYC, jf has combined years of mixing in every imaginable scenario with thousands of hours of studio time to land on a mature style and groove-based production that’s heavily focused on the experience of the listener.
Released through a number of hot Independent labels (including yours truly), his tracks have seen time in the high ranks of Beatport’s charting system and garnered support from Ritchie Hawtin, Nic Fanciulli, and many other well regarded Jocks from around the world.
We're thrilled to host his latest evolution! Malmix 8 is a top notch DJ set as well as a sci-fi comic epic, created in conjunction with Irish cartoonist & producer, @boc_uma!

Introducing Malmix 8. An epic coming of age tale, told through sound and space...
It's the story of a Starman named Duncan. He hails from the Planet Gj 1214b, a Waterworld on the south side of Dandune. It's known for fast winds, late nights, and as a haven for fun-seekers from every galaxy. Some around the sector even refer to it as "Gin and Jupiter".
Our story begins where another ends. All of his life 'ol Dunc' wanted to be a sailor like the rest of his family. His brothers and sisters were some of the best sea to space pilots around, and they loved to show it. But he was not.
Unfortunately for Duncan, life on Gj had been hitting him from both sides as he'd been struck by horrible cases of both sea-sickness, and love sickness.
If being the brunt of every joke down at the docks wasn't bad enough, his ex was the daughter of some heavy-hitters and having his name dragged through the mud by every chatty Cathy down at the Second Skin Salon had made the situation untenable.
After years of trying to find a path forward on Gj, he looked out at all the other rocks in the galaxy and figured there had to be a better place for him. So this is where we find ol' Dunc, as he cruises the sector in search of a new home.
He was very excited to groove to his lengthy Spacecloud playlist as he rolled through the cosmos at his own pace. Unfortunately, he updated his Z-phone on the way out the door and his entire catalog was saved to the cloud on a completely different planet. All except for one song. It was a live DJ set called Malmix 8. And while he was less than thrilled to have just one track, he was happy to have one that really rode out.
The crazy thing is that the more he listened, the more it started to sync with his own journey. And each song was its own story that fit perfectly into his situation. With nothing but time on his hands, he began to write about the journey and how it tied into Malmix 8.
So for the next few days, we will follow ol' Dunc as he floats along bumping bass, dodging rocks, and documenting his travels through sound and space.
