“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
