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 produced the original score for the EMMY® award-winning The Doctor, the original theme song for NBA TV's flagship Inside Stuff, and critically-acclaimed remix tributes to James Brown, 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G.. For his efforts, J.PERIOD was nominated for DJ Remixer of The Year at the 2014 Global Spin Awards and among Okayplayer's Best of 2014.
As Music Supervisor for the Brooklyn Nets’ inaugural season at Barclays Center, J.PERIOD's custom-curated soundtrack won rave reviews and was praised as the new standard for music in the NBA arena (ESPN). J.PERIOD is also credited with producing the Brooklyn Nets' opening theme song in both of its first two seasons at Barclays Center.
Outside 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 in the studio working on his debut album, scheduled for release in late 2015. Click here to listen to previously released J.PERIOD productions.
