THE JOURNEY SO FAR !
SUNDAY, 2.00 P.M. , 17th JUNE 1984. The day a success story began at a FM RADIO STATION in Jakarta, Indonesia . The story of DJ JAZZY JOE, who knew that if you believe & work hard enough for your dreams, they do come true ! Born on 8th May, 1968, this taurean was raised up with exposure to many cultures, thoughts of mind & music styles as his father, working his way up in the I.F.S., was on constant move around the globe. Since ' Papa was a rolling stone ', some of Joe's influences came from experiences at London, Paris, Bangkok, Singapore, Jakarta, Tehran & Dubai.
Back at the club, Joe hit upon an idea for a 60 minute weekly radio programme. ‘CJ’s Times' ,as he named it, had 30 minutes of nonstop music followed by a top-three countdown, listener’s requests, contests with prizes, latest club info and of course, Joe’s exclusive remixes. Full of music and creativity, the programme soon became one of the most popular programmes on Times FM, 102.6Mhz. Then came the All-Delhi DJ Competition in July 1995, with Delhi’s top 5 DJ’s competing for the title of the ‘No.1 DJ in Delhi'. Although Joe came in right at the end, he drove the crowd wild with his original remixes, raps and inimitable style. Once again, the crowd voted him best and Joe walked away with yet another feather in his cap.
In September 1995, Jazzy joined My Kind Of Place, the nightclub at Taj Palace Hotel. Soon enough, he made his presence felt at this new club with his exclusive mixes, theme parties and afternoon Jam Sessions. He also got busy representing his club at public events like rock shows, music competitions, personality contests and the All-India D.J. meet. In March 1997, Jazzy created another record as the first Indian DJ to celebrate his 5 - year - anniversary through an event later called ‘Mix Masters’ , where the Top DJ’s flew in from all over the country and played, not as competitors, but as companions, to create an event unique to Delhi. Not only did the crowd get some of the Top Indian DJ’s playing together, the DJ’s got a chance to interact, learn and appreciate each others different styles. Since then, this event has become an Annual event that both the DJ's and the crowd look forward to. DMC, the Premier International DJ Club, held the FIRST DMC INDIA CHAMPIONSHIP in September '98 and Jazzy was happy to be a DMC Champion. Jazzy followed this with another record -- this time at Valentines ' 99 where he was joined by his friend DJ Whosane. They were the first Indian DJs to perform a 15- hour nonstop marathon . Jazzy introduced Delhi to the now famous Hip-Hop night and performed show after show all over the country. But, Joe's favourite event was the big Victory Concert in Delhi where Joe performed with 15 other Indian artistes for the Indian soldiers at Kargil. Jazzy reflects, " I've always been performing for my fellow Indians, this one was for the country ! "
And so began Joe's "Second Phase" as he not only launched his label but also announced the production of an Audio Album( featuring eight tracks ). Spreading his wings after a long time, Jazzy also began an All-India tour which took him to shows and events all over Mumbai, Calcutta, Bangalore, Chandigarh and Ludhiana - with Chandigarh being special as he was called to Launch the huge music store, Planet M , along with 23 other top Indian Artists. Indiatimes.com, the premier website of the ' Times of India ' group, chose Jazzy to be an ' Expert ' for their music section, where visitors could ask Jazzy anything about Music, Clubs and DJ's in India. Joe also began writing for youth magazine ' BLAH ! ', where his column called ALL THINGS JAZZY had his Top 10 Club Hits, Top 5 Indipop Hits, Recommendations, Hot Nightspot of the Month and all the Happenings in Delhi. But, even with so much else happening in his life, Jazzy still kept doing shows all over the country.
