Jamjar

Co-founded by Adam Roberts and Otto de Vries in 2002, Jamjar is a project that focuses on presenting elements of electronic music not often heard in main stream clubs and venues. The music however remains accessible and a night with Jamjar is night of Lounge, Deep and Soulful House seamlessly blended for aural pleasure. Sometimes soulful, sometime dirty, always deep.

 


Otto de Vries

Otto has been djing for over 20 years, with a focus on lounge and deep house for the past 12 years.
 
Otto's House sets moves seamlessly from mid-tempo beats to more up-tempo Deep and Soulful and Deep Tech House. His Lounge sets incorporate trip hop, breaks, bossa and nu-jazz sounds with the odd rare groove in between.
