Music to make you feel
Originally from San Diego, CA, Jed came to understand the house/techno scene as defined through the sounds of DJ Dan and Donald Glaude in the late 90s. Jed has always been a musician and producer. Djing was an artistic avenue that allowed him to combine those two musical facets. In the early 2000's, after moving to Seattle, WA, Jed began exploring music and performance through this medium.
Over the years Jed's sound has progressed, melded and recycled itself. He spent the year of 2001-2002 studying abroad and spinning the local club scene in Manchester, UK. Then he returned to Seattle and teamed up with djs Cojo and The Rukkus to form a 2x4 tag team trio known as The Technicians. The Technicians rocked crowds all over Seattle from 2002 - 2004. JedX and Cojo formed the production team Da Crackaz and began pushing themselves to produce house and electro as well as experimental, downtempo and hip hop. In 2003 Da Crackaz began throwing a series of club nights together with Seattle dj Ben Shelton under the production name Subsidize Music.
By 2005, Jed started bringing organic flavoring to his dj performances by adding live guitar. Then, in 2008, he was joined by Akheenu Musa on percussion. This pushed the envelope even further in bridging the gap between the digital and organic realms of electronic music. It also added a rich live quality to the show making it more accessible and interactive. You can catch them together on the mix "Afterthought" (2009).
Jed's performances continue to inspire as he pumps out funky, techy, progressive house while scratching, mcing and playing guitar. His performances deliver nonstop energy and emotion, keeping crowds engaged and forever in motion.
