JEDI is an Emmy Award-winning Los Angeles-based DJ, admired for his eclectic style of mixing, song-selection, and turntablism. Over the past decade, he has toured the globe as the resident music maestro for Russell Simmons’ Tony Award-winning Def Poetry Jam, and later, with Grammy Award-winning hip hop pioneers, DIGABLE PLANETS.
He holds down a myriad of residencies and nights in the Los Angeles area. On any given night of the week, Jedi can be seen spinning high-energy, multiple-genre-spanning sets with the Rootdown Soundsystem, the Modern Audio Collective, and many more of the city’s unsung DJ elites. He also contributes to Downbeat 720, a bi-weekly Santa Monica-based performance workshop for high school students.
In his day-to-day life, Jedi harbors a deep enthusiasm, fascination, and appreciation of all things related to music, politics, media, current events, pop culture, comics, and art. The intent of the MPC podcast is to provide an outlet to share and discuss these numerous interests.
