About Jumpin Jack Frost
Brixton born and bred, his childhood was soundtracked by the soul, funk, reggae, and foundation hip-hop that would, a couple of decades later, become the building blocks of jungle music. This was the seventies and eighties, the era that saw the rise of the sound system in the UK, and the young Frost paid his dues as a box boy for the local Frontline sound, eventually graduating to mic man.
But, as history shows, his true calling lay behind the decks. In his autobiography, “Big Bad and Heavy”, he recalls working briefly in removals and, for no apparent reason, being given three thousand unwanted records. This proved to be a moment that would shape his career. Highly knowledgeable and passionate about the music, in 1987, Jumpin Jack Frost the deejay came into existence.
Of course, it wouldn’t be long before a whole new music scene would arise. Rave culture was born, and Frost was right there from the beginning.
