A voyage into the world of DJ Jus-Ed reveals an adventurous, energetic and spiritual style of playing quality house music. Since reappearing on the scene in 2001 after a brief retirement, DJ Jus-Ed's underground smooth sets have captured & educated audiences all the way from his home base in Connecticut to Miami's South Beach, holding it down on two fronts with a weekly residency in New Haven, CT at Diesel Lounge and a bi-monthly residency at Halcyon "Underground Radio" in Brooklyn, NY. The "Underground Radio" show which was also featured on groovetech.com, started out as a fall slot and a year later has featured the likes of well-known producers/DJ's such as, DJ Romain, DJ Dimension & William Rosario (MegaMen Sounds) Lord G, Henry Maldonado, Kevin James (M-BreakRecordings) and DJ Afro (Los Amigos Invisibles).
DJ Jus-Ed 's exposure to a wide range of experiences shapes his unique musical viewpoint. At the tender age of six he was backing up his grandparents in a Jazz duo "Tomi & Eddy" touring from the East to West coast as a drummer, later attending the University of Bridgeport at age 10 to study percussion instruments. Other musical influences included James Brown , Buddy Rich and later Chicago, 3 Dog Night and Luther Vandross. In the early eighties faithfully tuning in to WBLS with Frankie Crocker, Jus-Ed also embarked on his professional dj career in 1982 starting out playing the music of the times, freestyle, house, and R&B but retiring in 1985.
Upon his return in 2001, Dj Jus-Ed teamed up with DJ Vic Money (98.7 Kiss FM ), to create the "Underground Quality " signature under which they began producing parties at venues such as, Ludlow Bar and Smithfields in the Lower East Side NY.
