Jaime James’ foray into the DJ scene began during the mid-80s in Northern California. Though he was affiliated with various Bay Area DJ crews, it wasn’t until his younger brother brought home a pair of rickety belt-drive Technics, and a beat-up 2-channel mixer, that things truly began. Back then, his vinyl record purchasing habit leaned heavily into hip hop.
Things gained momentum after the unfortunate passing of the DJ and owner of Divine Styles Productions; Jaime and his brother subsequently assumed ownership and continued to DJ for the next several years, while also providing sound and lighting reinforcement.
Then, after a nearly ten-year hiatus and with mobile DJ’ing far behind him, Jaime became involved in the dance music scene in 2005. Since then, he’s held residencies at several San Francisco nightclubs, like The Endup, and has performed at venues and underground locations around the Bay Area.
Jaime has also played music at various music festivals across the US, like LoveFest (SF), the WMC (Miami), Movement (Detroit), Burning Man (Black Rock City), as well as international events in France, Germany and Spain.
