    Producer, vocalist, remixer and DJ, Jaymie Silk is a combination of musical personalities, influenced by a double culture: rave parties and the diaspora to which he is linked. Sometimes described as a "prodigy" or "Certified Club King", once resident DJ of the Montreal ballroom scene, his music crosses the European electronic scene as much as the North American clubs. A daring mix that constitutes an artistic passport breaking the traditions of pop, bass music, techno and garage. After moving from France to Canada in 2013 and after a decade of producing for other artists, Jaymie turned to his solo career. With his first releases in 2016, his unique style quickly got him noticed by various labels. Jaymie Silk has since released several EPs and singles with Shall Not Fade, Fool's Gold Records, Pelican Fly, Frite Nite and more. His previous EP "The Legend Of Jack Johnson" is listed as one of the best EPs of 2021 by UK magazine Mixmag, and his new release "The Rise & Fall of Jaymie Silk & Rave Culture" is listed as one of the albums of the year 2022 by Italy's leading magazine Rumore. In addition to his music used in award-winning TV shows and documentaries, bootlegs and original productions that Jaymie has attracted attention to his music (Billboard, Dj Mag, Afropunk, Vice,Xlr8r ...). Whether on French (Boukan Records, Resources, Bel Air) , Japanese (Trekkie Trax) , Chinese (Babel Records) or North American (Fools Gold, Frite Nite, Knightwerk) labels, as well as gigs in Canada (Picknic Electronik, Igloofest, Moonshine), U.K, France, Spain, or radio guest mixes including BBC1 for Annie Nightingale, it is the hunt for the invisible, a quest for the Self in music, which pushes Jaymie into this endless whirlwind.
