Jai Ford

My name is Jai-Smoov aka Dee-Jai Rugget and I’ve been playing music for over 35 years.

I first started when I was about 4 years old. I would watch my father play drums, and in turn I learned to play drums, match beats, keep time and so on.

As a drummer, transitioning to a DJ came easy to me. It was like having a drum in my left hand and a drum in my right hand. The next thing I did was make them sound like one, which was no problem. My partner DMDJ and I drove our families crazy for hours playing music, and we loved it.

To this day I still enjoy playing music and I have played at clubs, made studio recordings, and records. I’ll never give up playing music, It’s in my blood.
