| Jaimy |
||Back in the day, Jaimy was one of the first producers who succeeded in making |
a living with house music. Being adopted by Amsterdam`s Outland Records, just before their period of grandeur, Jaimy was responsible for half of all the music coming out of the Outland studios. He collaborated with many Dutch Dj’s, and engineered most of the other dance floor smashes. He still can`t shake the fans that remember “On The Discotrain”, and sometimes reluctantly talks to them about the old days...
Why reluctant? This has foremost to do with the fact that Jaimy, after the collapse of the Outland Empire, instantly moved on with his life. He started developing new songs and sounds for the new era of house, acquired his own studio and started to re-profile himself as an independent producer. Meantime he played at parties, being a welcome guest for his uplifting hypnotic sets.
About two years later he met his musical partner Kenny D.
Production wise, Jaimy & Kenny D. released most of their stuff with Black Hole Recordings, but also signed tracks and projects to United, Combined Forces and Paul Oakenfold`s Perfecto label. Their smash hit “Keep On Touchin` Me”, got picked up and reworked by Erick Morillo`s Subliminal, and has been signed to Skint Records/Loaded for a UK re-release. They’ve remixed acts as Halo Varga, Lil’ Devious and Way Out West. 2001 saw the birth of Jaimy & Kenny D’s own label, Fatal Tracks, administered and distributed by Black Hole. The first Fatal vinyls have encountered nothing but good response.
Jaimy's style is best described as progressive tribal house, very groovy with a lot of samba and tribal rhythms. His sets are a combination of groovy house with dark, sexy beats, vocals, lots of percussion and old classics that bring a great energy onto the dance floor.
Jaimy organizes his own Label night “Fatal Music presents Drum Mode” every month at different locations in Amsterdam and he holds a residency at the leading gay-event called Joystick Amsterdam.
Besides dj-ing, Jaimy is owner of the Fatal Music Group consisting of several labels like Fatal Music and Drum Mode. Through his labels, Jaimy will release his solo materials, projects with other artists and producers and Fatal Music will represent him as a DJ and Drum Mode will be another outlet for Jaimy’s solo productions. Already as from the beginning of both labels, they’re getting massive support by industry hero’s as Danny Tenaglia, DJ Vibe, Victor Calderone and Superchumbo, Chus & Ceballos, Tedd Patterson and Luca Ricci. Jaimy's mission with his labels is to create a platform for dance music that comes from the soul, in order to give it the attention and appreciation it deserves.
