DJ Jazzy Jeff        

Record Producer, DJ, Actor & Comedian

DJ Jazzy Jeff was born in West Philadelphia and developed a love of music at an early age. Jeff was just ten years old when he started spinning records at parties; his family’s basement was a training ground for his expert mixing. Since 1985, DJ Jazzy Jeff has wowed us with his flawless turntable skills, innovative production, and musical versatility.

From the success of "DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince" with partner Will Smith to the critical acclaim of his production company A Touch of Jazz, Jeff proved time and time again that he would always be a force to be reckoned with.

And he continues to represent with his solo projects, collaborations, mixtapes, and live shows. His love of music shines through in everything he does.

Until recently, DJ Jazzy Jeff had been busy traveling the globe. Jeff satisfies his passion for sharing good music with two annual European tours, regular tours of Canada, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and the Middle East, and shows across the US throughout the year. With each set, he takes fans on a musical journey. And he chronicles all of his travels in the increasingly popular Vinyl Destination, a web series that documents DJ Jazzy Jeff’s experiences on and off stage.

Due to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, DJ Jazzy Jeff moved the party, literally, in-house with his signature livestreams: Magnificent Friday Nights (9 PM ET), Magnificent House Party (Saturdays at 3 PM ET), and Magnificent Lunch Break (Wednesdays at 12 PM ET).

Though DJ Jazzy Jeff is busy playing good music for fans worldwide, he hasn’t stopped producing great music. His newest release, "Evil," debuted at #1 on Traxsource and continued to chart for weeks after its release. He is currently working with Philadelphia MC Dayne Jordan. The duo released "Memoirs of Dayne Jordan" in Spring 2015. In the meantime, the pair has released several singles and videos, including Room Test, All About the Art, I Want it All, Einstein (prod. by DJ Ferno), and Play Dat. The same year, DJ Jazzy Jeff founded the PLAYLIST Retreat, an invitation-only event that brings artists together to inspire, motivate, and fuel collaboration.

Over the course of his career, DJ Jazzy Jeff has achieved many accomplishments, including a DMC Championship and multiple GRAMMY Award and American Music Award wins. But he is a humble man who is still doing it as his 2002 hit said: "For Da Love of Da Game."
