Jazzi Q fell in love with music from as early as he could remember. Born in the sound system household of Federal Sound, Q started DJ-ing as a 14-year-old schoolboy entertaining at local birthday and football club parties, youth clubs and school discos.
Such became his popularity in his local and surrounding areas; he received his first local resident spot, every Thursday night in Camis Nightclub in Hackney, East London followed by sharing bills with top DJs from the London club and party scene.
Hailing from Archway, London, Q was school partners of certain later to be known as…Jazzie B and Daddae Harvey. The three friends grew together and with the addition of Aitch B, created the legendary sound system SOUL II SOUL.
The sounds reputation grew as they tour the county with their unique bass sound. But it was on their own door step, in the thick of warehouse parties, their first central London regular Sunday nights at the Africa Centre blew the UK club scene to a different level.
Sparked off by the clubs success, dubs such as “Feel free” and “Fairplay” pivoted Soul II Soul to international success with No.1 hits, numerous tours and special appearances all over the world.
As part of the Soul II Soul Production team Q developed and deployed his programming skills on the bands further albums and works including legends as James Brown, Cheryl Lynn, and the Jones Girls. As well as productive work in the studio, Q continued on the club scene as manager of the famous Soul II soul, Friday nights…The fridge.
