In a world awash with carbon copy producers, 26-year-old James Cayzer aka Jaytech is a bright exception. Classically trained as a pianist and a perfectionist when it comes to programming, his unique blends of deep melodies and sunny electronic grooves are equally at home in the DJ sets of Sasha or Desyn Masiello as they are in the stadium headlining appearances of Above & Beyond.
Despite his relative youth, Jaytech’s prodigious creativity and prolific work rate (he started producing at just 14 and released his first track at 16) have seen him rise up as the most consistent artist on the popular Anjunadeep imprint — even releasing the label’s first full artist album through 2008’s ‘Everything Is Ok’ ("Lush, melodic and soaked in electronic groove - a crossover gem" **** -DJ Magazine), and hitting number one in the iTunes dance chart with his Anjunadeep 02 mix compilation in 2010. ("Compilation of the month **** -Mixmag.)
Cementing his position as one of the leading lights within deep, uplifting electronic music, Jaytech’s monthly mix show ‘Jaytech Music’ now airs on radio stations across the globe and is downloaded by thousands as a monthly podcast. A window into his sound, it’s also the best place to hear Jaytech’s upcoming personal productions before anyone else.
Long chosen as the warm-up DJ of choice for Above & Beyond, Jaytech is now taking off as a headline DJ in his own right. Chosen to headline the Anjunadeep room for the label's flagship party at the Miami WMC, he remains the number one headline DJ within the core Anjunadeep family.
February 2011 saw the release of Jaytech's most promising mix work to date. Anjunadeep 03 is the latest annual label collection and features 29 largely unreleased tracks that range from deep, dark and hypnotic techno sounds to upbeat, uplifting electronic house grooves.
Proof of his rising stock behind the turntables, a packed DJ diary has recently taken in dates at Ibiza’s Amnesia, London's Brixton Academy and Japan’s world-famous Womb. In the past year he has also traveled the vast corners of his Australian homeland with the Future Music Festival and taken his uplifting and perfectly paced sound on tour in America — more recently with Above & Beyond for their TATW350 event in Los Angeles, where his set was broadcast live across the globe to a listen-in audience of 30 million.
Often uplifting but never obvious, Jaytech is a force on an unstoppable rise right now. And his journey is only just beginning.
Ex-Melbourne and now Sydney based artist Kraymer is already recognised in the EDM scene worldwide for his own jump-up style of Bassline Electro.
Catching the attention of heavy hitters including the infamous Acid Jacks, who signed his first EP on their pre eminent Idiot House Imprint; he then followed up with releases on leading independent labels including Ho-Ju Records, Monkey Beats, Central Station, Wonked Records, Troublemakers and many more.
Gaining a solid reputation for both his production skills and finesse behind the decks, Kraymer has been high demand nationally, headlining and supporting the likes of Gigi Barrocco (ITA), Kid Kenobi, DJ Antention (RUS), The Only, and Maseo of De La Soul, as well as playing alongside the likes of Faithless, Mike Posner, Rusko, Fake Blood, Kill The Noise, Sidney Samson and more at the Good Vibrations Festival.
2010 saw Kraymer taking his productions to the next level, releasing a 3 track EP for Ho-Ju Records, which gained support from the likes of Mustard Pimp, Don Rimini, Larry Tee, Figure, Reset!, Two Fresh among many others, and the title track ‘Shake That Booty’, featuring vocals from Shon B of Yo! Majesty, hit the Beatport Electro House Top 100 Chart within a week of its digital release.
More chart success has followed with ‘That Piano Track’ hitting no. 61 on the Beatport Electro Charts this year, and in 2011 Kraymer continues to get props from many of the biggest players in the scene, with Kissy Sell Out regularly dropping Kraymer tracks on his BBC Radio 1 show and Deacon Rose giving the K man airplay on Aus national station Triple J.
Recently signed to Will Bailey’s record label, Simma Records (UK) Kraymer has new releases on Monkey Beats (UK), Rot10 Musik (USA) amongst others, and is continuously earning support from the likes of Krafty Kuts, DJ Zinc, Stereo MC’s, Far Too Loud, Will Bailey, Calvertron, DJ EZ, The Squatters, Aquasky, Rico Tubbs and many more.
2012 better watch itself because Kraymer means business – with collabs with Will Bailey & Mr. Skeleton currently on the boil, aswell as productions for Deekline, and with Kraymer continuously in the studio producing new original material, the sky is the limit for this young Aussie beat Maker
