The story started on the day she decided to sell an ocean-blue scooter she'd gotten only 6 months earlier for her 17th birthday (now more than a decade ago…go figure), determined to replace it with 2 Technics SL 1200's. Only a few months later, Jazzmin took her first premature steps as a dj in the Belgian house scene, playing at clubs like Decadance and Tijuana in Ghent, Café d'Anvers in Antwerp and at various smaller-scale parties in Belgium. After teaming up with a good friend as Jack 'n Jazz she became a resident dj on the infamous What's Cookin'? parties in Ghent, sharing line-ups with 1200 Warriors, Inland Knights, Big Hair, Bryan Jones, Diz, Franck Rogers and Joe Clausell. Now going at it alone again with solo-sets here and there (Tomorrowland just to drop one), one could say that the particularity of a Jazzmin-set, which may be considered to be somewhat different from "contemporary standard dj-procedure", is that her sets are 100% defined by the pairs of legs on the dance floor. Instead of reading labels, producers, charts and trends, she prefers to read her audience. She's not afraid to mash up electronic hitsy moneymakers that have been played one too many times, with just-released-yesterday-experimental tracks, as long as those legs on the floor agree.
