Marco about JayJay
What I really like about JayJay is his amazing ability to focus on what’s essential. Whatever the situation, he’s always completely calm and relaxed. Unless he’s sitting at a sampler or a drum machine. He’s always saying to me: "Keep it simple! Boom clap, boom clap…" His beats and tracks even get rustiest necks moving – which is why I’m convinced he has some African-American blood in him somewhere. Or maybe it’s because in his many years as a club DJ he simply inhaled so much funk.
He’s also a trained graphic designer with many years of experience large advertising agencies, so he knows the ropes when it comes to modern music production for commercial use as well – and still he always keeps his cool. I have no idea how he pulls that off.
On top of it all, JayJay is also a brilliant lyricist. Have a listen to "Alarm" or "Popstar". He wrote music history when his song "Ficken" was the first German language house track to spin on club turntables. What a dude!
