Neil Jackson’s versatile sound moves crowds and launches many memorable nights — whether it’s heard in strobe-lit nightclubs or at exclusive events by globally recognized brands. The New York-based open-format DJ utilizes his wide-ranging, up-to-the-minute knowledge of music and magnetic personality to create a lively, high-energy experience for an audience that has included luminaries such as Jay-Z, Drake, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Bruno Mars.
A native of Los Angeles, Jackson’s DJ career spans over 15 years. After getting his start spinning at rap battles hosted by acts like Pharcyde and the Black Eyed Peas, he quickly made a name for himself as a promoter for LA’s top radio stations and as a DJ for parties throughout Southern California. In 2002, Jackson brought his talents to the East Coast, where he’s manned the decks at Marquee, Lavo, and Beauty & Essex in New York, Rumor in Philadelphia, and Gold Room in Atlanta. He’s since taken his sound overseas, spinning in Paris at Matignon and Titty Twister, VIP Room in Dubai as well as hotspots in Monaco and Tanzania.
His ability to work a room has made him the top choice for events hosted by media, corporate and philanthropic brands such as Levi’s, Facebook, SiriusXM’s BPM, and UNICEF, as well as film and music festival parties from Sundance to Coachella. He also showcases his skills by crafting official remixes for artists like Flo-Rida, ASTR, Kid Ink and Marina and the Diamonds.
