I don't have to be the center of attention, but I like to be a part of the action. As a drummer, producer, and DJ, J1 is not only just a part of the action; he's usually creating the action. From teaching himself how to play the drums in his hometown of Cleveland to linking up with some of the most progressive musicians on the funkscape of his adopted city of Los Angeles, J1 demonstrates himself dedicated, passionate, and, in his words, straight to the point. While living in San Francisco, J1 visited L.A. and he decided right then and there to move. It proved to be a wise snap decision, indeed. In his three short years since relocating, J1 has become affiliated with Shafiq Husayn's En'AFreeKa Ensemble as well as Animal Kingdom. He's released several beat tapes and podcasts through Heavyweight Production House (HVW8), including Attack of The Deer and The You Tube EP. After a completely improvised Super Session at HVW8 Art + Design Gallery, Master Blazter, comprised of Computer Jay, Dam Funk, and J1, has grown to be one of the foremost bands on the funk/soul/boogie scene. His artistic integrity and resolute work ethic account for much of his recent success. By applying that same approach to every collaborative venture, J1 helps artists realize their visions while staying true to himself and the funk. Quietly observant and keenly focused, he's always at the eye of the storm of people having a good time. Record Breakin' Music is proud to releases his latest project The Yellow. This project represents myself being fortunate enough to create with talented like minded individuals to come with music and a sound that we are all proud of. On this release J1 collaborates with some heavy musical hitters; Jimetta Rose, Devonwho, Ragen Fykes, I,Ced, Coultrain and Teeko. The Yellow is soulful as hell with a dash of that futuristic vibe we love about J1's Production
