Jumping Jack Frost
Bit by the music bug at a tender age, South Londoner Jumping 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 s.djs were Grooverider, Bryan gee, Fabio, Frost,and Pete stewart. When the rave scene exploded Frost was at its forefront, enjoying the freedom of going with the flow and mixing drastically different styles of music to suit the mood of the moment.
Joining Dynamix dj agency run by (Eddie richards) was a major turning point in frosts life ,now things got serious ...It was time to start seeing the world ,Germany,japan,and more followed . Being in northern ireland in the dark days when nobody else wanted to go!!!! Bcm and ibiza with carl cox and gigs with the prodigy
.....There was so many experiences like the first time in italy with Frankie valentine and being caught in the middle of a neo nazi march in germany with fabio ..Also being in germany when the wall came down ...:) His friendship with Bryan Gee was formed when Frost heard Bryan's diverse set in a small south London bar. Bryan left his promotions job at Outer Rhythm with some demos by then unknown Bristol artists Roni Size and Krust, the two teamed up and started their own label, V Recordings, to release them. 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 BURIAL .(mobo nominated)... recorded as (LEVITICUS) with a young engineer called (DILLINJA) at the controls and (OPTICAL) on the vocal mix that featured frosts sister yolanda. The sound was too hardcore for the experimental and cutting-edge 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 100) winning the best radio dj award . (PLANET V)- frost and bryan headed 2 america where two years as (monthly)residents at the world famous (TWILO) New york put them on the map in america planet v had arrived . Frost was also resident once a month at the (VIPER ROOM) in los angeles And
(INDUSTRY) in toronto.. Planet v at bagleys and the end nightclub were legendary too say the least .Frost has remixed Jamiroquai ,Cath coffey and Drizabone 2 name a few
....BRASIL: After meeting dj marky and patife and going 2 brazil frost and bryan decided to release a ep featuring the best talent from brazil (the brasil ep) . The rest is history .....
