Dj Dillon Jam
Born and raised in Greensboro, North Carolina, Dillon Jordan, professionally known as DJ Dillon Jam, is a turntablist. At the age of 8, Dillon’s parents gifted him with his first DJ controller. Dillon taught himself the skills of a DJ by studying the masters in the field, such as Skratch Bastid. Others soon noticed Dillon’s passion for the craft of DJing and began to mentor him and provide valuable feedback.
This has allowed DJ Dillon Jam to fine-tune his skills, gain exposure, and secure experience in the field. Dillon’s love for music is what fuels his DJ career, he wants to tell the stories of great musicians through smooth blends, well-executed transitions, and cuts that are sharper than a knife. As a DJ, Dillon enjoys playing for a crowd and seeing the smile on their face and excitement in their bodies when they begin to feel the music or hear their favorite song. You can hear him weekdays, at 5:00 pm, on Jams Old School Radio, and 8pm-10pm Friday nights, on FUBU Radio.
