Jamie Hartley

Hey I’m Jamie the owner, but more importantly, DJ tutor here at Crossfader. However, my story didn’t start here. It started over a decade ago when I was a 16 year old wannabe DJ in my bedroom. I had the dream, just like most new DJs. 

I realised I could take my passion for music and be creative. It was way back when two turntables and a basic 2 channel mixer were the norm and CDJs had just become mainstream. 

I was a kid obsessed with music, DJing and nightlife. The next 6-8 years of my life saw me hold residencies at some of the leading clubs around the UK, play alongside DJs such as Hardwell, Laidback Luke, Jazzy Jeff, Fatboy Slim & Martin Garrix to name a few. I had the opportunity to play at major festivals such as V Festival, T in the Park and Wildlife Festival, as well as in Ibiza & Croatia. 

I was so grateful for all these opportunities and experiences but after nearly a decade it was time for the next chapter. I really wanted to pass all the knowledge I had gained working in the industry along. That’s where you come in!
