More about Djinn - Born in Oxford (UK). He is of mixed origin ranging from Central Asia, Hawaii and Solomon Islands to Scandinavia, Ireland and England.
As a child his father felt best for his son to have an eastern upbringing so subsequently Djinn moved to Pakistan at the age of five, A wise decision as he was taken through a journey of eastern spirituality which amplified his natural love for music and reflection.
After his return to the UK in 1992 Djinn immediately found himself assigned as the lead singer of his school band and so his music journey began. Recording and releasing material with the band it was only a short while later that became a support DJ in clubs around the UK from Oxford to London playing Hip-Hop, R&B and electronica, Djinn always had a tendency to squeeze in a little live PA over instrumental parts of the songs beings played while also personalising the production a little.
He moved to London in 2001 and started working with various producers who offered him production deals but he never felt entirely satisfied with their sound, so he completed a degree in Computer Science and Music Technology and learnt the art of music production and composition. Djinn has now worked with numerous artists globally on projects for release, Film, TV, Radio, and other media, and continues to develop others.
