Interview: Remix Kings the Jump Smokers Talk Touring With Pitbull and the Art of Branding in Dance Music | Green Label
This weekend, we’ll be continuing our Green Label Live: Las Vegas summer series at LAX Nightclub, bringing you the best in EDM and nightlife culture.
This Saturday, April 25, features Chicago-based DJ/production duo the Jump Smokers.
Headed by Justin Roman and DJ Flipside, the Jump Smokers have over 150 remixes from the likes of P!nk, Katy Perry, Usher, Mariah Carey, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Jessie J, and many more. Recently the duo just finished supporting Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull on their international tours, and looking ahead, they are planning on collaborating with both artists for upcoming albums.
I was able to chat with Roman over the phone to discuss his early music history, his radio career, their relationship with Pitbull, and the importance of branding your image in the EDM circuit.
