Biography

In 1992, Jason Jackson, internationally known as J. Rocc, launched his vision of forming a DJ crew comprised of talented musicians, by introducing to the world Southern California’s first turntable band - the Beat Junkies. A prized accomplishment enthusiastically received by worldwide audiences, J-Rocc continues to invent musical styles that display his creative expertise. Highly recognized for his funky showcases and original arrangements, J-Rocc has clearly distinguished his place in music history.

J-Rocc began his DJ career in 1985 with PSK, a DJ group based out of Huntington Beach, CA. Possessing the imagination and skills to alter the traditional purpose of the turntable, J-Rocc applied his artistic talent by using the turntable as his musical instrument. His individual approach towards developing his ingenious collections consists of focusing on smooth, rhythmic transitions and building an energetic vibe. Maintaining the entertainment level plays a major role in producing explosive performances, and J-Rocc achieves this excitement and dynamics without “killing” the original recordings.

Heavily influenced by jazz legend John Coltrane, world-renowned Hip-Hop producers Dr. Dre and DJ Aladdin, and the departed Hip-Hop radio show on KDAY (1580 AM) featuring the comedic personality of Russ Parr, J-Rocc absorbed their influential contributions to help drive his musical genius.
