Subjekt & Jæger pres. Rumjulsrave with Dax J & Jokke

Dax J | Jokke

Away from the gluttonous consumption of the christmas dinner table and the awkward family engagements where an embrace always lasts that uncomfortable second too long, comes a barely-audible burrr from Oslo’s beating heart. It calls to you like a siren’s song, a large flickering arrow lighting your exit; offering you a way out from the mundane conversation, the opulent display of hyperbolic consumerism and the tepid versions of the pseudo happiness that every christmas brings. 

MC Kaman’s christmas tree flickers with its last breath under the strain of our basement sound system where Øyvind Morken has taken root to kicked off our annual Romjulsfestivalen.

In a new tradition with Norwegian media outlet Subjekt, Jæger bring you a week-long program to abscond from the stale traditions of the holiday season and lose yourself in the welcomed embrace of a Funktion One system and a playlist selected by Dax J and VOID resident Jokke.

Dax grew up listening to the UK sounds of Jungle, Drum n Bass and Garage. Being heavily influenced by Drum n Bass heroes like Goldie and Bad Company, his love for the underground meant he soon started to DJ on pirate radios at an early age of 15 whilst he was still at school. His current and past productions have frequently earned Dax BBC Radio 1 airplay throughout the years, including his tracks being consistently featured in the BBC’s Essential Mix episodes from DJ’s such as Dave Clarke, Tini and most notably in Ben Klock’s award winning Essential Mix of the Year in 2015. He’s released records on seminal labels including; Deeply Rooted House, Electric Deluxe, Soma, Fondation Sonore, EarToGround, Arts, and has been remixed by a collection of the Techno scenes’ key players such as Shifted, Phase, Ryan Elliot, Truss, Jonas Kopp, Slam and Par Grindvik.

Jokke has booked Robert Hood, DVS1, Steve Rachmad, James Ruskin, Silent Servant, Sotofett, Marcel Fengler, Mike Dehnert  and more to Jæger’s basement as our resident Techno enthusiast. A well-known DJ in Oslo, Jokke has put together and contributed to some of the city’s more uncompromising nights, including the now legendary Void events with his partner in crime, O/E. Recently the pair have legitimised Void with Darkrooms, a night that has brought some of the most uncompromising Techno artists to our neighbour, Villa’s subterranean dance floors for the last 5 years. Through all these projects Jokke has dedicated himself to bringing the best in Techno to the city, whether he’s booking artists or residing in our booth.
