A native of Paris, Jef K started mixing records in 1992 after spending nine months in London. His deep, groovy and sexy house sets made him quickly earn a reputation as one of the fastest rising DJs amongst the French house scene.
Long time residencies at some of Europe’s most prestigious clubs followed and Jef regularly graced the decks at Rex Club and Respect Is Burning in Paris, Fuse in Brussels, and Robert Johnson in Frankfurt. As global demand for the DJ rose Jef was often travelling far and wide to play at top clubs in Asia, Australia, South America, Canada and USA as well as tmost of the european countries.
In the mid-90s Jef kept his passion alive as A & R for French label Distance and in turn was later responsible for 6 of the label’s highly rated compilations – five volumes of the “My House” series and the third volume of the “French Sessions” series. Then Krypton/ Sony France released Jef’s “Paris-Chicago Express” CD- a Cajual and Relief compilation in 1997 – the same year that Jef made his first foray into production with E-Troneek Funk’s Cyril K. The track ‘First Step’ made it onto the “Aline Can Dance” compilation project released by Small/Sony.
At the end of the 90s Jef K began to leave an indelible mark on the industry when he teamed up with brother Antoine aka DJ Tony Silver to launch the labels FFWD Records and Silver Network. The latter has seen output from some of House Music’s finest producers including Chez Damier, Charles Webster, Pepe Bradock, I:cube, Dixon, Iz&Diz, The Revenge, Milton Jackson, Spirit Catcher, Soul Minority, Chris Carrier and Gwen Maze. 2002 saw the birth of another successful label Crack & Speed, together with partner Holmar Filipsson, with subsequent releases from Sasse aka Freestyle Man, Chris Carrier, Jay Haze, Abe Duqe, Franklin De Costa, Phil Weeks and many more.
2009 saw Jef flexing his production muscles some more and a collaboration with old friend/ partner Chris Carrier for 3 EPs on Silver Network – “Morning EP“, “Chaka EP” and “Fever EP” – all highly regarded by both press and peers. In June 2010, the label dropped one of the monster hits of the summer ‘In My System’ – a collaboration between Jef, Chris Carrier and Chez Damier under the name The Gathering. Jef K’s own ‘System Mix’ received a huge response from all the major house DJs in the world including Ricardo Villalobos, Zip, Radio Slave and Soul Clap it’s no surprise the track charted at no.7 in the Resident Advisor Top 50 tracks of the year 2010 and has received the accolade of remixes by The Revenge, I:Cube, Milton Jackson, Soul Minority, Dj Shade & Steve Ferrand…
Jef also worked with Gwen Maze on a productive collaboration, « Want You Back » (Silver Network), as well as remixing and producing by himself for numerous quality labels including Composite Recordings, Moodmusic, Cecille Records, Rebirth, Akbal, SUOL, Rue de Plaisance, Airdop, Pooled Music, One Records, Melisma, Dame Music, Slow Town, Organic, Vitalik …
In June 2014, Jef teamed up with long time mate Rhythm&Soul, owner of the almighty Slow Town label in Madrid, and the pair started a new label named On A Mission Records. Three sold-out vinyl-only releases so far produced under the name The Groove Brothers with remixes and edits by Nail, Mr KS, Jerome Pacman and Valentin … The fourth release was out in September 2016, a double pack EP from The Groove Brothers, with 7 original tracks and 2 interludes, with great international response …
Now in his third decade in the industry, Jef’s love of DJing and the people’s love for him is as strong as ever. His 2016 gig schedule covering some of the best underground parties – Half Baked, Bloop, Katapult and Concrete Paris – says it all.
