A journey into sound enjoyment with Jamie Saint
DJ, producer, and event production manager Jamie Saint finds it difficult to describe his sound. However, what he can say is that he loves any track that’s able to make him move, and his sound story starts with him listening to late-night radio.
Teenage Jamie would spend his Friday nights listening to Derek The Bandit’s show on 5fm. Falling more in love with dance music each weekend, he eventually found himself leaving his bedroom so that he could play every party, school function and late-night social in order to share the music he loved.
He’s still about bringing joy to those happy revelers marching in front of the DJ booth, and was kind enough to make an exclusive mix for The Way of Us. Give it a listen and then find out more about the artist after the jump.
What’s your day job?
I am a Logistics Coordinator for Takealot.com
What did you grow up listening to, and what are you into nowadays?
I grew up listening to a lot of jazz, soul and funk – guys like Earth, Wind & Fire, Toto, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson and Gypsy Kings to name a few. Nowadays I listen to pretty much everything – a mix of radio tracks and dance. If I had to say what my track is right now, it's anything new from Bruno Mars.
What’s your favourite music festival?
Sweet Nothings for the intimate vibe, amazing production and driving techno acts.
Who would you love to collaborate with?
Well, to be honest I haven't produced anything in a while, but if I get a chance to collaborate on a DJ slot with another artist it would have to be Dillyn Will or Kilopascal. The fun I’ve had playing back-to-back with those two DJs has been amazing. Otherwise I would love to make a track with Tube & Berger or Township Rebellion.
What’s in this mix you’ve made for us?
I'm hoping to take you on a little journey of enjoyment. The mix I’ve made will hopefully also give you an understanding of what dance music is, and should be. I’ve made this mix from some of my absolute favourite tracks and newest tracks that work for clubs and festivals.
How can we keep up with everything you’re doing?
