Friday Night Spotlight: Get to Know Jayceeoh
From crafting studio bangers and top-notch remixes, to collaborating with industry heavyweights and rocking crowds the world over, rising acts like Jayceeoh can deliver on it all.
The Los Angeles-based producer/DJ has showcased his knockout production and world-class turntable prowess to audiences at Coachella, iHeartRadio, EDC Mexico, Das Energi, and TomorrowWorld, among others. So far this year he’s made a 6-stop tour through Australia and played alongside A-Trak, Party Thieves and Riot Ten at the Illectric River Music Festival.
After early releases through Fool’s Gold and Buygore, the former tour DJ for Sammy Adams and Wiz Khalifa dropped a string of buzzing remixes.
Jayceeoh teamed up with B-Sides to brew a booming flip of “Run” by Alison Wonderland, contributed to the NVSB Remixes with his trapstyle take on “Loco Ono,” and followed up with a massive future bass and trap rework of Morgan Page’s “Running Wild” in 2015.
That same year he teamed up with hip-hop veteran Redman for the booming single “Turn Me Up Some” and after receiving a surplus of positive reactions from the initial release, the duo announced their collaborative project 1000volts in May of 2016. They have since dropped a handful of hip-hop flavored club tunes, including “I’m Lit” and “Lights Out.”
Most recently in January, Diplo and Friends featured Jayceeoh and Red, promoting their musical brainchild 1KV and giving BBC Radio 1 and 1 Xtra listeners a high-energy serving of trap, hip-hop and electronic goodness.
No stranger to the airwaves across the pond, Jayceeoh has also supplied guest mixes for BBC 1 Radio’s Annie Nightingale. In fact, Jayceeoh is altogether familiar with his performances being broadcast, as he was crowned champion of VH1’s “Master of the Mix,” winning the third season of the televised DJ competition in 2013 and earning a load of industry attention.
Years before making moves in the electronic scene, he started the critically-acclaimed Super 7 mixtape series, where he along with 6 other world-class DJs blend together an extended set’s worth of fresh beats, deep cuts and head-knocking vibes.
A short list of DJs who have contributed to the last two editions of the Super 7 series includes: Jazzy Jeff, Z-Trip, NGTHMRE, Lookas, Gaslamp Killer, Chris Karns, Tropkillaz, and Party Favor. Jayceeoh molded the mixtape brand into a full-blown label imprint, as he founded Super 7 Records in 2014.
Known for rocking festival audiences with speaker-thumping tracks and on-the-fly remix trickery, Jayceeoh cut his teeth coming up in the battle circuit. As a world-renowned turntablist, he’s respected for tastefully combining technicality with musicianship to move audiences. And after earning his stripes battling, backing notable hip-hop acts and playing clubs worldwide, Jayceeoh made the move to add serious production skill to his repertoire.
Combining heavy electronic sounds over trap and hip-hop drums, Jayceeoh captures moments with his music. From cascading synth melodies layered over powerful downtempo percussion and slapping bass, to breakbeat party-rocking tunes laced with wobble patches and hi-hat rolls, Jayceeoh fuses big stage electronic sound with a hip-hop vibe and brings it all together in a manner most appealing to the ear.
Jayceeoh can be seen April 28 in Phoenix, June 9 in Tampa performing with JayKode, and later on June 17 in San Diego. Keep on the lookout for 1000volts tour dates.
