Danny Tenaglia once called Dutch DJ and producer Jaimy "the king of modern tribal electronic dance music". Jaimy who, you say? Shouldn't that comment be the other way around?
Jaimy is one of Holland's most successful house producers. He's been making music since 1990, co-producing the early-nineties house classics 'Gotta Let You Go' and 'On the Discotrain' on Outland Records. Together with production partner Kenny D, he’s released on labels such as Wildlife, Tribal America, Ministry of Sound and Subliminal. Their pair of 12"s 'Like a Bitch' and 'Keep on Touchin Me' were hammered by the likes of Danny Tenaglia, Steve Lawler and Erick Morillo.
In 2004, Jaimy launched Fatal Music, a label for dark, tough, peaktime tribal house that expresses his passion for drums and rhythm. The label has since split into three branches, Fatal Music, Drum Mode and Anearia, which are home to established and up-and-coming producers such as Luca Ricci, That Kid Chris, Kult of Krameria, Bashar and of course Jaimy himself.
But despite all of his successes and plaudits, why does Jaimy consider music his biggest enemy? RA talked to the Dutch house producer at his studio in Amsterdam. Post a comment
