" From his early teens he put the time in on the technical side of his craft, pouring hours into honing his mixing skills and taking up bar residencies before he turned 18. Then there’s the hours spent deep in promos, “wading through shite” to find that one unknown record that’s going to make the dancefloors he plays for explode. "
Our latest signing Jasper James has played for FLY CLUB a few times over the years, even as a fresh faced Dundee student 4 years ago when FLY first kicked off. However, 2016 has been Jasper’s most successful year yet. He has emerged from his roots as a leading tastemaker in Glasgow’s vibrant house scene and has broken away from his peers to become more than just a one-to-watch, but a respected touring DJ in his own right. As a DJ and producer with talent that stretches beyond his years, he’s crafted his own brand of house and techno through DJ sets at some of the worlds most respected venues. These include The Warehouse Project, Smartbar, Lux, Bobbeaman and Sub Club; his busiest summer in Ibiza with Circoloco, Paradise and Zoo Project; and equally at home playing festivals such as Glastonbury, Strafwerk, Secret Garden Party and more.
Jasper has been moulding his sound week-on-week via his recently finished yearly residency at London’s Phonox. His all-night marathon sets have earned huge attention from visitors to both clubs and key media outlets like Resident Advisor, where Jasper polled at #81 on their annual Top 100 DJs vote, as well as Mixmag and DJ Mag – the latter of whom named Jasper ‘Breakthrough DJ Of The Year’ at their annual Best Of British awards.
Though only 26 years old, Jasper’s musical heritage goes back a long way – a facet of his make-up that also explains his measured, mature and beyond-his-years demeanour. Taught to DJ at 13 by his father, Harri of Harri & Domenic, he went onto hold the rare accolade of being the youngest DJ ever to play at the legendary Sub Club in Glasgow. Since those early sets, Jasper has gone onto develop his own unique style to the point of being able to hold his own during b2b sets with revered DJs such as Gerd Jansen, Jackmaster and Craig Richards.
