Born and raised in Toronto, Jesters world-class turntable skills have helped to elevate this talented DJ far beyond the borders of his Northern homeland. Well known throughout Canada, The USA, Europe and The Caribbean for expertly spinning Hip Hop, R&B, Reggae, Soca, Electro and countless other styles of music (all with consummate ease), Jester has more than earned right to the title North Americas Most Versatile DJ.
Infamous among his Toronto peers for his tireless work ethic, Jester proves that a Jack of all trades can, in fact, be a master of many. A firm testament to this is the fact that Jester somehow manages to maintain his position as one of Torontos most sought after club DJs and a highly respected producer/remixer, while also hosting The G-Drive every weekday from 3pm to 7pm and DJing the Anything Goes Mixshow at 8pm on Torontos newest Urban station, G98.7FM!
All of this would be more than enough to keep any mere mortal occupied, but not Jester. Embodying his personal mantra Its Not A Joke, Jester somehow still manages to keep cranking out cutting-edge mixtapes for his website ThisIsJester.com at an alarming rate while remaining one of Torontos hottest DJ exports. Putting his trademark versatility to good use, Jester spends countless night-time hours and weekends smashing clubs and parties all over the globe with his widely sought-after turntable skills, and when hes not at the radio station or smashing a club, he can be found as his home base, Jugglin Studios, producing one of his critically acclaimed original remixes.
Unrivalled in the Club and Dancehall scenes, Jester has played shows with many of the worlds top DJs and artists including icons of all genres like Busta Rhymes, Clipse, Erykah Badu, Sean Paul, Jermaine Dupri, Machel Montano, Kanye West, P. Diddy, Kid Capri, Krosfyah, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Tony Mentally Ill Matterhorn, Ginuwine, Alison Hinds, Rupee, Kardinal Offishall and many more.
Over the years, Jester has made appearances at various media outlets including Toronto radio stations like FLOW 93.5FM, CKLN 88.1FM and CHIN 100.7, as well as The Beat 94.5FM (in Vancouver) and WEFM 96.1FM in Trinidad (West Indies), not to mention his super-popular stints on Globe-Radio.com. His television appearances range from the Canadian TV classic Electric Circus to MuchMusic and MuchVibe.
All in all, Jester is the consummate multimedia powerhouse: a talented DJ, a riveting on-air personality, a cutting edge producer/remixer, a trail-blazing entrepreneur and a genuine musical visionary.
We never sleep, he jokes, which in itself is testament to the fact that when it comes to the business of music as his trademark catch phrase says Its NOT a joke.
