A musician through and through. Jeffrey Collins began studying guitar at age 16 after years of normal play. Learning all about music through his studies helped him to grow as a composer. Influenced by Jim O’Rourke, Derek Bailey and John Cage, Jeffrey began making extended technique improvisations on his guitar. Releasing 3 recordings of his extended technique improvisations, Jeffrey realized that he had said everything he had wanted to with the guitar. He eventually moved into DJing.
His love for long songs with a great groove led him inevitably into the world of electronic music. Paul Van Dyk was his first taste of electronic dance music. The ability to make one very long groove by blending two turntables together, led to an immediate fondness for dance music.
DJing for 5 years now, Jeffrey plays around the Columbus, Ohio scene. Jeffrey has moved into the world of producing dance music. He is only one track into his music production (Jeffrey Collins & D2 VS. Ticon – Lo-Mi-Therapy). His music has been played by the likes of Pole Folder, Phil Thompson (aka, Moonface), Osamu M, Robbie Lowe and others.
In the last 4 months, Jeffrey has had two of his own Productions Released. Along with two remixes, one for Ascension Records of New York, and one for Point Records of Poland. Be on the lookout for much more in the near future.
