DJ Just1 does not only hold down the club scene, he keeps it in a jugular-crushing headlock that no other DJ can break through. It’s in the environment of the Canberra club scene that he has earned his rep as the Australian Capital’s number one Hip-Hop and R&B DJ.
First earning his DJ props through a State DMC Championship title in 2004, DJ Just1 has successfully walked the shaky line between turntablist and party DJ, maintaining a high level of recognition and respect in both areas of the DJ craft. Since taking the crown he has been one of the busiest in the business, becoming a major fixture at RnB and Hip-Hop clubs all over the city, current residencies include: Chinese Laundry, The Ivy, Meche, Academy, North Bar etc…
It’s Just1’s diversity as well as his intricate turntable skill’s that has seen him go beyond the club realm and onto the big stage for notable music festivals including Good Vibrations in Sydney – 2008, 2009 & 2010 and Canberra’s Foreshore Music Festival in 2008, 2009 & 2010. Just1 is also the first name in the DJ rolodex when it comes to booking a true party-starter to warm-up crowds at some of the biggest tours, including: Busta Rhymes, Cypress Hill, Naughty by Nature, Pharoahe Monch, Q-Tip, Pharcyde, Kid Cudi, Arrested Development, 112, Wale, Gym Class Heroes, Next, Jean Grae, Dj Craze, Cut Chemist (Jurassic 5), Dj Z-Trip, Spinderella, Dru Hill, Horace Brown, Chauncey Black, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Supernatural, Fatman Scoop and more.
Despite being in the game for more than a minute, the momentum behind DJ Just1 is only just starting to build. With the next music festival season less than six months away and offers from club promoters throughout Australia coming his way thick and fast, Just1 is set to be leading the wave of new generation DJs to watch out for.
With 8 years of daily fine tuning behind the turntables and constant work within the ACT club scene, there are few people in the Canberra music industry with the experience and respect that Just1 can lay claim to. If you’re ever in town, the chances are you’ll find Just1 easily enough- rocking a fitted cap and a crisp pair of Air Force 1s on his feet, DJ Just1 will either be at the bar, in the VIP or more than likely tearing it up behind the decks at the biggest and best party any night of the week.
How many DJ’s does it take to rock a party? Just1!
