OCTOBER 2014 TOP 10
New York native Jaymz Nylon is a name that’s been in the mix for more than a couple of years. Heralded as the godfather of Afro-tech, Jaymz’ reputation as a sought-after sound designer, producer, and remixer has continued to grow since his breakout release, “Ofunwa ‘It All Begins Here’,” thrust him into the global limelight in 1993. Spanning the greater part of the last two decades, Jaymz has built an impressive back catalogue of productions, not only diverse but wet with emotion. From Afro-Latin to deep house, to old school acid house, to broken beat to disco, Jaymz’ curatorial continuum knows no boundaries. In addition to traveling the world over Jaymz has touched down with labels like Tribal America, Nitegrooves, Irma, and of course, his own Nylon Recordings — proving that quantity and quality can both bunk in the same house. To date Jaymz has released three full albums, over a dozen remixes, and an even longer list of singles. And, still going strong; as the newest member of MotionFm’s ﬁve-star cadre, Jaymz’ “Adult Selections” podcast will be sure to leave no rock unturned.
