Hi my name is Jprime. I’m a breaks/hiphop/scratch DJ from Vancouver Island, and I have been on the turntables for 13 years now. I began with a love for old skool hip hop, funk, and turntablism inspired by such DJ’s as Q-Bert, Babu, Cut Chemist, and DJ Shadow. My sound reflects that today as I lace breakbeats with dashes of scratch flavour and hip hop…in fact – my goal is to become a household name for breakbeats on Vancouver Island. I challenge any artist on the Island to produce more signed & released breaks tracks to date.
I am one half of the breaks duo “Vipercorps.” We have 6 releases (digital and vinyl) out so far on Lucky Break Records (Germany) and Breakz R Boss Records (Canada). You can find us on Beatport, Juno, and Trackitdown. There are also tracks, radio archives, photos, articles, and other info on myself and my projects at www.viperfunk.com
I’ve had the pleasure of playing with heavyweights like Deekline, Stanton Warriors, Chali 2na, Hexadecimal, Mat the Alien, and DJ Czech. Recent career highlights include headlining NSBRadios’ breakbeat night at Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and taking the 2012 Breakspoll best Radio Station with NSBRadio in London, UK.
