Hailed as a “music guru” by Rolling Stone and cited among the “world’s Top DJ’s” by The New York Times, J.PERIOD is a master of his craft: a DJ whose musical repertoire bridges cultures, generations and styles; a producer whose projects tell stories.
J.PERIOD's production resume boasts collaborations with GRAMMY® winners Common, John Legend, Joss Stone & Mary J. Blige. He has been called “the most creative mixtape producer of all-time” by music icon Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson (The Roots, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon).
Expanding his repertoire in 2014, J.PERIOD is credited with producing the original score for the EMMY Award® winning The Doctor, the soundtrack for Brooklyn Nets, and critically-acclaimed tributes to James Brown, 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G.. For his efforts, J.PERIOD has been nominated for DJ Remixer of The Year at the upcoming 2014 Global Spin Awards in New York.
As Music Supervisor for the Brooklyn Nets’ inaugural season at Barclays Center, J.PERIOD’s signature sound became the defining soundtrack for the franchise, and set a new standard for the role of music in the NBA arena (ESPN).
A trendsetter in the studio, J.PERIOD is equally adept onstage, performing as Tour DJ for artists including Black Thought/The Roots, Lauryn Hill, Nas, Q-Tip & Kanye West at venues ranging from Summer Jam 2014 to Johannesburg’s Coca-Cola Dome.
J.PERIOD is currently working on his debut album, due out in 2015. Click here to listen to previously released J.PERIOD productions.
