JAMIE BYRNE

What started over a decade ago at small private parties in the South of Ireland is now a full-time job, as Jamie continues to establish himself as one of the country’s most formidable deejays. Utilizing a diverse, open-format approach to music, Jamie now holds court at some of the country’s most popular clubs with weekly residencies in Lillies bordello and the Wright Venue swords. Jamie has warmed up for international dance acts like Nicky romero, Bingo players and Steve Angello to name a few. And played private partys for Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Robbie Williams, U2 and the Rolling stones

When he was 15, Jamie would accompany his close friend Kevis Power, a deejay himself, to various parties and watch in awe and amazement as he would teach him mixing techniques and let him dig through his crates of vinyl all the while observing an experienced dj control the energy of the room.

Observing the tables led to practicing incessantly on them, making a lot of fuss over his excellent sets at local parties and eventually landing a gig at Oxygen, the famed Waterford nightclub where he would link up with some of Irelands top djs and hold resident there for 2years.

At 19 Jamie left Ireland to explore the world of deejaying in America. He spent 5 years playing in some of the hottest clubs and venues across the states holding down residencies in some of New Yorks famous nightclubs The Pink elephant, Club Cain, Marquee and Tonic to name a few.

Monkeys can be trained to play a song; but only the elite can scan any place in any city in the world and instantaneously gauge, and react to, the vibe of the room. "I feel like there’s a lost art to reading a crowd," says Jamie. "It’s not just jumping on the tables and spinning. It’s playing a song, taking a step back and seeing how people are reacting. There are deejays that can play the Top 40 hits, but there’s only so long you can play that for. For me, it’s about the crowd being in sync with what I’m doing; me and them never actually speaking but communicating through music."
