Biography

Jeremy has had a musical background since the moment he was born on the 3rd July 1973. His first encounters were through his father. A member of a successful disco band J.A.L.N band in the early eighties.

In addition to the early influences of his father, artists mainly of American origin such as Chic, Chaka Khan, Diana Ross, Delegation, Kool and the Gang etc were also an inspiration to Jeremy.

Jeremy’s first productions were recorded in his father’s studio in Handsworth Birmingham. Initially producing mainly “Rave music” inspired by reggae. Jeremy gradually ventured into “drum n bass” which led him to start a record label in 1994, with his father called Dubtronix. This label produced two highly successful tracks “screwface” and “fantasy”.

The not so obvious stage in Jeremy’s musical career was to become a DJ. His reasons were, however, so that he could once again approach the music at a street, were he would get a direct reaction from the crowds he was playing to. He involved himself with local pirate radio stations, playing deep NY house music, which led towards a successful path playing at many clubs around the world.

Unable to satisfy his eagerness to further his career in music, Jeremy contacted Nice n Ripe records and started to produce tracks on their label under various names: SLY, DEEP COVER, GROOVE CONNECTION, G.O.D, SYLVESTER amongst others.

Jeremy moved to London and settled in quickly, going to all the major House and Garage clubs so that he could get a vibe from the crowds.
