JUMPING JACK FROST
Brixton born Jumpin Jack Frost hit the DJ circuit at 18, mixing funk, hip hop and original breakbeats and diving into the acid house circuit via the Carwash nights in the late 80s with the likes of Grooverider, Bryan Gee, Fabio, Frost and Pete Stewart. When the rave scene exploded Frost was at the forefront, enjoying the freedom of going with the flow and mixing drastically different styles of music to suit the mood of the moment. Residing at The Fridge in Brixton alongside Ellis Dee Paul Trouble Anderson and Evil Eddie Richards, Frost went on to headline many legendary events of the era including Sunrise and Energy.
Joining Dynamix DJ Agency a major turning point. He worked alongside Carl Cox and The Prodigy, Frankie Valentine and Fabio to name a few and his friendship with Bryan Gee was cemented. Bryan and Frost formed V Recordings and signed Bristol artists Roni Size and Krust.
“To watch Roni, Krust, Die, Dynamite and Suv develop into full blown artists the satisfaction and pride watching reprazent win the mercury music prize is something that cannot be described.”
In 1993, Frost produced one of jungles most seminal anthems, the Mobo nominated Burial under the name Levictus and V and Philly Blunt was formed. The exemplary rise of both labels is illustrated by the success of the V classic album released in 1997 which confirmed Frost and Bryan as leading forces on the scene on both sides of the Atlantic. Frost spent 5 years at KISS FM bagging the Best Radio DJ Award in 1997 and adding a string of other world-class venues to his repertoire, such as The Viper Room in LA, Industry in Toronto and Twilo in New York. Frost has also remixed the likes of Jamiroquai, Cath Coffey and Drizabone and most recently Frost won best Jungle DJ Awards at The National Drum & Bass Awards.
