There aren’t many DJs like Jim Shaft Ryan. As a pioneer of dance music, being one of its earliest adopters of culturally inspiring sounds, he has appeared at some of the biggest venues and raves on the planet. As if that wasn’t enough, he is also a leading creator of the internationally famous legendary brands Miss Moneypenny’s, Chuff Chuff, and Pout. He has directly affected and witnessed some of the most landmark moments in dance music. He’s literally seen and done it all and lived to tell the tale.
Jim is something of a visionary and an ambassador for dance music. He has been a DJ, with a deep love of music, since the early ’80s. Naturally, this has enabled him to craft a deep understanding of music. It’s this deep knowledge that you can hear in his sets and his productions. He is a believer that, every time he steps into the studio or steps behind the decks, he is going to create something unique.
It’s his passion for what is next and what is yet to come that drives him forward. A desire to create and reinvent whilst maintaining integrity through authenticity and respecting a deep heritage that he helped create is extremely important to him.
We are delighted to welcome Jim for his inaugural mix at BPM. Jim delivers a perfect selection of funky, tech house, and techno. It’s clear to hear that Jim is a seasoned selector as he perfectly blends together different styles and approaches to create a vibe that catapulted him to global success.
His passion for house music is something that he is well renowned for. Any set that he compiles is designed to take the audience on a journey where they feel engaged and inspired by positive uplifting vibes and energy.
Jim Shaft Ryan is an unstoppable, inspirational force and one that is set to continue.
