Originally hailing from West London, Jamie Rodigan has grown up with music in his blood. Being the son of the legendary radio broadcaster Sir David “Ram Jam” Rodigan music has played a pivotal role throughout his life. He developed a love for reggae music through his trips to Jamaica in his youth with his father. He was captured by the sweet sound of reggae music. His eclectic DJ sets today reflect these musical experiences growing up. It’s not just Reggae that has formed Jamie’s musical education. He was classically trained in piano and violin from a young age and when he wasn’t playing instruments Jamie was trading Jungle tape packs with school friends. Jamie started playing music at house parties during his University days where he formed the sound Extra Stout. When he got the call for Extra Stout to play at Rototom Sunsplash in 2008, it was an unmissable opportunity. In 2011, Extra Stout established the dancehall night Mudd Up! in East London. With Jamie Rodigan as a resident selector there, the night grew in popularity. In recent times he has delved into music production and has collaborated with up and coming artists Sara Lugo and Dutchie Gold. In 2013 he released “Paranoid Riddim” on the New York indie label Dubshot which featured appearances by Ras Demo and UK Dancehall star Fowlie Don. Jamie is currently working on forthcoming projects and collaborations. In 2015 he hosted a stint on London’s top Urban station Bang Radio and featured interviews with premier Reggae and Dancehall guests including Chronixx, Dre Island and Randy Valentine.
With regular dates in the UK and Europe and a new residency in Dalston, East London Jamie has established himself as one of the top Dancehall selectors from the UK.
