Since that single he has released over thirty of his trademark deep dubby house on labels like Poker flat, Episode, Treibstoff, Intristc design, Konvex konkav, Jamayka & Morris Audio.
In 1994 he and a partner opened a record store called Cosmic One Records that became the first electronic record store in Malmoe (Sweden). With the opening of the record store the DJ career got a boost and he started playing on various venues.
A year after the store was opened Jeff & his record store partner Jim Groovy started making their own one-off parties and clubs in various sizes. His longest residency was in a house club called Thank God It's Friday were he played almost every Friday for over a year. He has played at clubs & parties like: Fabric (London), Otto zutz (The edge, Barcelona), Fusion festival 2002 (Germany), Ostgut (Berlin), Terrys cafe (Frankfurt), Polartv (Berlin) & many more.....
After moving on from the record store Jeff decided to move to Oslo/Norway for new inspirations. The first album has just been released and is getting good response.
A couple of 12" are also to be released this year on labels like: Audio beyond, Ibizaloopsound, konvex konkav, Worship & Choke. Apart from the dance music he is also into producing Lounge music and has recently finished recording an album for Just chillin records which is a Swedish based label, that's due for release Summer/Autumn 2003.
THIS IS JEFFS FIRST EVER MELBOURNE VISIT.
