London-based DJ, record producer and remixer Jax Jones was born Timucin Lam in 1987 in London, England. His multi-ethnicity household (his father is Turkish, his mother Malaysian and his stepfather Nigerian) provided him with a diverse background which exposed him from a young age to a wide variety of musical influences. After studying classical guitar he discovered his true calling when a teenage friend introduced him to the world of beatmaking. During the early part of his career, he became associated with Brixton's Raw Materials studio and immersed himself in London's grime scene. During this period he met fellow producer Duke Dumont and developed an interest in house music which led to the two men co-writing "I Got U," "Won't Look Back" and "Ocean Drive," all of which became hits, with "I Got U" making it to number one on the UK Singles Chart. Outside of his professional relationship with Duke Dumont, Jax Jones has built a successful solo recording career with his most significant success to date being the multi-platinum-selling "You Don't Know Me" released in 2016, which reached number three in the UK and went on to become a chart hit throughout Europe. "Ring Ring" and "Play" were both singles off his 2018 EP Snacks with the latter charting at number one on the UK Dance Chart. He dropped his first full-length release in 2019, Snacks (Supersize), which peaked at Number 54 in Australia. That December, he also released second EP Midnight Snacks (Part 1) and the following year, teamed up with friend Martin Solveig to form Europa, with the pair having released the singles "All Day and Night" (2019) and "Tequila" (2020). In 2021, Jax Jones dropped his third EP, Deep Joy.
