DJ J-STORM (born Jason Storman), was not born a DJ, but he was born to be one. At an early age J-Storm's heart pumped blood, saturated in music. In 1997 at age 21, he became a member of the Universal Zulu Nation. The following years would bring him a TECHNIC DMC Regional's 3rd place @ the B-Boy Pro Am, 2nd place ITF Regional's in Gainesville Florida, ITF US Finalist, a write-up, and photo in URB Magazine and a featured article and photo in the SOURCE Magazine. J-Storm would later go on to be the DMC Regional's Tampa, Florida Champion, San Diego Guitar Center Spin-Off District Champion, Southwestern Hemisphere Guitar Center Spin-Off Champion, Guitar Center Spin-Off Grand Finalist, and a DMC USA FINALIST (which he would achieve again in 2007). Jstorm is now currently the 2016 Tampa DMC Champion and a 2016 DMC USA finalist.
His earlier work though self-admittedly aggressive, proved a true rite of passage for him:
"I was always very aggressive on the turntables. In the beginning, it was just a bunch of noise, and then I progressed into a full-fledged turntablist and competed constantly. From competing I got better at stage performances and went on tour." And tour he has, twice with Orlando Hip-Hop staple "SOLILLAQUISTS OF SOUND.”
I love it first and foremost. I get a high off watching people go nuts. It's in my blood. Literally. I was born to be a DJ, I've known it since I was a kid. Music gives me goose bumps."
With influences such as: DJ Qbert, Mixmaster Mike, and Dj Craze, J-Storm's style transcends technique into pure feeling, crediting Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training as the catalyst to his true place and style in Hip-Hop music.
