As a teenager who was born in Shreveport Louisiana, but grew up right outside of Chicago IL, Jamarrian J. Johnson aka dj Vibez never imagined himself becoming a reformed dj that spins Christian music. One day in High School at a Saturday detention a young urban missionary invited him to church. For the first time at 16 years old Jamarrian heard a message that could give him hope.
Music was always a part of Jamarrian J. Johnson’s life. There was not a day you did not see him without his headphones, listening to music and talking about music. He loved music so much he made mixtapes for his friends who like to smoke, gangbang and have a wildlife. His 1st mixtape was called “4 Smokers Only” He mixed it off an A&B tape deck. It had lots of underground hip-hop artist featured on it. That soon changed after hearing the Gospel (Good News) he grew a desire to rap to get this message of a Savior out there. At the age of 18 Jamarrian moved from Grandma’s house to New Jersey and got signed to Mountain Top Records as a Christian Rap artist. He was a part of a group he started called 1 Mission. In 2004 while he was still signed he discovered so many gospel rap artists and so many different genres of music, he wanted to put the mic down and pick up some turntables. So he went to this DJ Scratch Academy in New York City and learned the basic foundations and fundamentals of a DJ. After his contract with the record label ended he moved to Long Island, NY to finish school and he found himself inside a radio station hosting his own show, interviewing new and upcoming gospel artists. From there dj Vibez started to become known. He started to take on gigs in NJ and NY areas, at church functions and staking jams. He also started to organize his own parties.
Next then you know dj Vibez became the owner/dj of Heatwave Christian After Party that was held in Etobicoke, ON Canada. He soon got married, had a beautiful daughter and now resigns in Brampton, ON Canada. There he picked up with gigs throughout the GTA and joined an online radio show on www.powaradio.com. He currently attends a Healthy church in Etobicoke, ON called Grace Fellowship Church (www.gfcto.com) This is where he grows his faith in the word of God.
