Biography Speedy J

One of the most successful and most respected Dutch dance producers.


Jochem Paap starts experimenting with tape loops and DJ-ing.


Because of his high-speed scratch techniques Paap is nicknamed Speedy J.


Paap sends one of his tapes to the Canadian +8 label. They like his work and release several successful Speedy J EPs.


Speedy J is one of the first dance producers to play live. To his own amazement the single Pullover becomes a worldwide hit.


Speedy J Ginger, Speedy J's, debut album, is greeted with much enthusiasm. The CD is released on Speedy's BMU (Beam me up!) label. Internationally it's out on Warp and +8.


With BMU bands Sensurreal and the Human Beings Speedy J tours in The Netherlands. He also remixes tracks for acts like the Shamen, Bjork and Sven Vath.

Human Beings Sensurreal


Speedy J's DJ set at the Pinkpop festival is released on the CD !ive. The track Pepper is released as a single and later in the year the album G-spot comes out.


Speedy J remixes Stefan Robbers' Moonbeak.


Paap shocks the house scene with the release of his comeback CD Public Energy no. 1 and the single Ni Go Snix. The album is released on NovaMute and +8 and critics call it a masterpiece. In the summer Paap plays at the Glastonbury festival.


Paap records the sound design for the film Souvenir by Michael Shamberg.


The single Ieee Mitten Menu is released.


Speedy J performs with Japanese computer graphics artist Daizaburo Harada in Paradiso in Amsterdam. On his new website www.speedyj.com fans can jam with Speedy J samples. The album A Shocking Hobby is quite experimental, featuring beats and soundscapes.


Van Slagboom van Loon, the project by Jochem Paap and the UK's Mike Paradinas releases an album featuring remixes by Boards of Canada, Pole, Four Tet, Coil and Matmos.


Speedy J releases the single Kreck as an appetiser for the June-released album Loudboxer. The album is significantly less experimental than A Shocking Hobby. It's back to the old danceable four four rhythm of latter day Speedy J. On the track Hayfever on the Perspective Fragments sampler (out on the Belgian label U-Cover), the duo Funckarma samples a great deal from Speedy J's Public Energy album.



With Maurice Spijkers Speedy J starts the new Sweatboxer club night in Rotterdam's Las Palmas club. It is meant to become a very basic club night focusing on great music on an amazing location with an absolutely spotless sound system. He uses the uncompromising Funktion-one equipment as developed in the UK. Collabs 100, recorded with Adam Beyer, is the first of a series of new albums, featuring friends, to be released.


With Germany's Chris Liebing he produces the 12" Collabs 300, the first of a series of collective EP's for the UK's dance label Novamute.


The collaboration with Liebing is followed up with the 70-minute rather industrial album Metalism, featuring techno beats and heavy rhythms, mixed together with dark ambient.


The EPs Collabs 400 and Collabs 401 feature a collaboration with George Issakidis (ex-The Micronauts) from Paris


The DVD Umfeld (October) is a co-production with American video artist Scott Pagano and features a combination audio in 5.1. surround and abstract graphical images.
