Artist Info

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Zurich based DJ and producer Jimi Jules is one of the most promising upcoming artists within the international underground dance music scene. Together with his partner in crime Oliver $, this Swiss groovy multi-instrumentalist recently shook up the scene with their smash-hit Pushing On, occupying the beatport number one spot for over two weeks. The tune emanated centrifugally, inducing shaky legs from the centre of Europe to the beaches of Miami and the shores of Japan. But let’s be clear: Jimi Jules ain’t no one hit wonder!

Descended from a tribe of Caribbean voodoo-sorcerers and a Central Swiss farmer and musician’s family, Jimi Jules quickly picked up the very basic essence of soulful musical vibrations, first expressing his colourful moods on a trumpet and later on a bass tuba. However, since carrying around a bulky wind brass all of the time turned out to be a bloody pain in the ass, Jimi Jules eventually switched to vocals as he completed his Master’s degree at the Zurich University of the Arts, where he specialised in mixing and producing.

Over the course of his studies, Jimi Jules proved his exceptional skills as a live performer in front of the magnificent backdrop of his electro-band Le Dompteur, simultaneously building up a heavy reputation for ceremonial DJ sets at his residence club Hive in Zurich. After Jimi Jules successfully freed himself from the academic chains that bound him to his home country, he decided to fulfil his childhood dream and moved to Berlin where he lived over the course of 2013.

It comes as no surprise that Jimi Jules quickly settled into Europe’s capital of electronic dance music; Soon he was entertaining Berlin’s clubs of distinction, routinely playing all night slots on the main floor of the infamous Watergate club. The club’s own booking agency was so convinced of this man’s talent that they offered him a place in the agency. Meanwhile, Jimi Jules moved back to Zurich where he is currently working on his upcoming album and still did not cut his hair.

Jimi Jules has come a long way already, but with his latest number one hit release on Defected and some prestigious bookings such as Montreux in prospect, it is apparent that this dude is only just commencing a fruitful journey through the mystical world of his own artistic creations.
