To all those who wonder how our beloved Jean-Jerôme got there, here the path of DJ who became the specialist in sunny morning and most evenings on Radio FG.
1992 was the starting point, "the first slap" (dixit Jean-Jerôme), immersion in a medium with electro trend, the discovery of his Detroit at parties "Cosmos Factory" to Mozinor (Montreuil/France). During this year, attendance of Jean-Jerôme to follow the techno scene is impeccable. He listens Radio FG on 94.4FM(Paris) at the time and spends his weekends in "Rave party".
Decided, rash and is a fan of Hardcore in December 93 Jean-Jerôme becomes DJ, he mixes in "Free party" unofficially until 95. It's also time for him to discover the joys of radio through young associative antenna: "Radio Lucrèce" in Evry (91) with a transmitter 100% Hardcore every Friday night (23h-1h). The resolutions of the year grow in early 1995 Jean-Jerôme Hardcore definitely stop and it was in February of that year he arrives at Radio FG. After a 5 month internship, approved without difficulty, he began working in the afternoon and then quickly pass on another time range (7 am to 9.30 am), accompanied by "Gwenola" he created the show "Radio-Clock".
Always on the rise, Jean-Jerôme took the opportunity to prove himself when the "Matinées FG" (from 9:30 to 12:00) is left without resident. This proved decisive … he became daily host of "Paradise Session" in the morning and "Matinées House". "Alloungez-Vous" to "FG Classics" to "FG DJ LIVE" in the evening and also the now legendary "CLUB FG" alongside the famous Didier Sinclair for over 10 years.
During these years, Jean-Jerôme alongside many Djs who advise (Thank Dj Gregory!) for the equipment, techniques or labels which, over time, lead to more exchanges than good.
Jean-Jerôme then started mixing in the biggest clubs and bars in the French capital (REX, Hell, Queen, Gibus, What's up bar …) and puts its name as a quick reference for "House music".
It continues and persists in this environment by finding her true calling: record production. He released his first EP Drum & Bass in 1997 under the pseudonym DJ DECAY and Hard-house remix with Sextoy (RIP) for the hymn of the Gay Pride that year.
