One of the fastest rising DJ’s and producers in Sydney, this UK expat has fast become one of the most sought after talents in and out of town. British born, (yet honorary Aussie) JimJam (aka James Whalley) has an ear and passion for great music delivering this in his sets consistently each and every time. House music and JimJam were made for one other, and his skill to build (and keep) a dance floor moving is pure perfection.
Whether it’s the bouncy, chunky beats that can be heard at Sydney favourites Chinese Laundry, Beyond or ZOO Day Club, to the fun, pumping & familiar big sounds upstairs at the iconic Beresford, JimJam has the ability to connect with his varying audiences giving them exactly what they want.
Regularly guest spots at some of Sydney’s premier venues (past and present) include: Marquee Hugo’s Hugo’s Ivy/ Ivy Pool, Arq Goldfish The Argyle Tank Chinese Laundry The Midnight Shift Phoenix The Oxford Art Factory ,Home Nightclub, Nevermind.
Not enough to be just on DJ duties, he also hosts and promotes own successful monthly club night “Therapy” with Sydney’s Dan Slater where he can spin the more deeper, cutting edge sound that he loves. When the big brands roll into town, you can expect to see Jim Jam’s supporting the who’s who of the local scene and special guest residents at:
ZOO Day Club
Having already performed at the world famous Sydney’s Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras, at Shakedown, KiKi. POOF DOOF in Melbourne, CONNECTIONS in Perth and FAMILY in Brisbane 2015 also saw him on the bill for Brisbane’s “Big Gay Day” and the official DJ for the Pam Ann 2015 Australian Tour.
