Jeff Lennon is a master of mixing up funk, soul, jazz, house and hip-hop from across the ages to create warm, emotional dance floors.

He has musical roots that go all the way back to the hip-hop scene in France in the late 80s when he discovered the Zulu Nation Movement through graffiti and street art. After a few years painting around Paris, he started to explore rap and DJing, organizing battles with MCs from the neighborhood, while avidly exploring the old soul and funk gems that were sampled by US rap artists. Today, his knowledge of those sounds is second to none.

In 1997, he inaugurates his first label, Kreatic Records with DJ LC. Together during 10 years, they released several licensed albums, a dozen rap compilations, over 25 singles, bootlegs, and mixtapes as well as soundtrack scores, and remixes exploring rap, ragga, house, electro, soul and r&b.

Now based in Lisbon since 2009, Jeff travels all around the world to explore new record shops, dig in the crates, play and unearth more soul, jazz-rock, funk, rap, afro, brazil, boogie, and ragga tunes.

He is a mainstay of the Portuguese scene who regularly spins at parties like DisqueDisse, BoaVista Socialclub, Vago, MUSA, Tokyo bar, Mona Verde, Praia Irmão, Plano B, Base, and OutJazz Festival.

Jeff is also a regular crew member for Natasha Diggs’ Soul in the Horn online shows. He also plays abroad in Europe, US and Asia during his innumerous travels, at clubs and audiophile bars.
