ABOUT J.PERIOD

With DJ & Remix work for Grammy-winners Lauryn Hill, The Roots, Kanye West, Q-Tip and Mary J. Blige under his belt, J.Period has become one of Hip Hop’s undisputed Mixtape Kings and most respected DJ/Producers. His massive mixtape marketing campaigns (J.Period’s recent Q-Tip collabo yielded nearly 500,000 downloads) have been commissioned by major labels including Def Jam, Interscope and Sony to bolster their artists’ profiles. His remixes have been called “brilliant” and “masterful” by Billboard Magazine, Vibe & The Source, and earned countless awards. Behind the boards, J.Period’s original production has earned placement in blockbuster film trailers (Universal’s American Gangster 2007, Fox’s Street Kings 2008)

and major video games (Activision’s Tony Hawk’s Motion 2008, DJ Hero 2009). And on stage, J.Period’s crowd-rocking skills have earned high-profile tour appearances with Kanye West, Lauryn Hill, P. Diddy and De La Soul, plus club and festival gigs around the world (Brazil, South Africa, Australia). Rising through the ranks of hip hop’s elite DJs, J.Period is undeniably one to watch in 2009.

Currently, J.Period is producing Vol. 2 of his acclaimed collaboration with Q-Tip (new tracks from Black Thought, Questlove and Pharoahe Monch!); collaborating with rising hip hop star K’Naan; and producing remixes for Activision’s DJ Hero, from the makers of Guitar Hero. Fans can tune into J.Period’s Truelements Radio (sponsored by Toyota/Scion), which boasts over 30,000 listeners monthly, online at http://www.scion.com/channel14 or on iTunes Radio.
