KT: First Up; what's your DJ name and how did you get/choose it?
After a few name changes I finally landed on ‘Jump Street’ (long before the recent movie release or that club night was coined haha). I picked it from a list of 80’s tv shows I found on the internet. Not wanting anything super serious, I figured the term Jump was somewhat relatable to the dance scene.
KT: How did you come to start DJing?
I’ve always been interested in music and production, having played guitar and piano when I was a kiddy. My love for electronic dance music probably came about after an exchange trip to France in year 10 where I was introduced to a lot of ‘Ed Banger’ label type stuff. Watching Justice’s documentary ‘A Cross The Universe’, kindly lent to me by Alex Helmer, sealed the deal! I started making crappy playlists for parties, eventually progressing to djing a slewth of 18ths and 21sts before progressing to my first Club gig in June 2011.
KT: What can people expect to hear from one of your sets?
Fake Chow last week was off the chain! I had a lot of fun ^^. I also played a handful of sets down the Surfcoast for Schoolies which were definitely well received.
KT: What can people expect to hear from from one of your sets?
I’m all about the fun and quircky and love to cross between House, Deep House, Tech & Bass. I tried to make a varied mixtape to depict this.
KT: Who's your favourite DJ/Producer at the moment?
It’s almost impossible to narrow it down. I’m a sucker for anything from labels such as No Brainer, Mad Decent, Top Billin, Sweat It Out! & Bromance. With such solid material coming out, often from relatively unkown guys and gals all the time!
Australia: What So Not, They have been absolutely killing it!
International: Savage Skulls, They always have something released I can use.
KT: What's the first song that pops into your head when you think 'Getting Tropical' and why?
Carte Blanche: With You; they are some damn tropical drums at the intro!
KT: What plans do you have for Jump Street in the future?
I’ve started on some serious production work, which I hope to improve on in between my aviation course. There are a few originals at various stages of completion and the plan is to have an EP ready by the end of the year. I’m eager to bang out a few more remixes over the uni break and am looking forward to more gigs and perhaps making an effort towards getting booked!
KT: What's your favourite memory of a live gig you've seen?
Danger at the Hi Fi last year.
KT: To all the promoters out there; why should they book you?
My gigs are eclectic and fun, I never play the same set twice and my past experience with all styles of venue means I can aurally please any punter. Don’t like playing songs for ages either, which keeps things interesting.
