About Jix

Jim’s musical journey began at the age of four, when he first started learning the piano. Then, this led him through many music specialist programs, and eventually to his degree in music. However, he realized his true passion was to write/produce music, and he hopes to become an international performing artist someday.

Jim Xu (aka Jix) is one of Toronto’s youngest up and coming DJ’s. While serving in the Canadian Military and tackling his way through his music degree at the University of Toronto, he has progressed from bedroom to the nightlife scene in only two years and nothing can get in the way of his desire to succeed.

our-philosophy-image
Recreationally for three years, professionally for two.
I overlooked the power of DJing/music until I landed my first club gig. The power to be in control of a dance floor and be loved for it is a high like no other.
The great DJ’s of Toronto’s hottest Clubs motivate me every week. But A-Trak is someone whom really inspired me to work on my craft.
Firstly, do it for the right reasons. Next, get the ladies dancing. Most importantly, spice it up; play 50% what the crowd wants to hear and 50% what the crowd didn’t know they wanted to hear.
Experimental/ Indie Electronic, Artists like Flume, Louis the Child, Mura Masa
This one is a bit of a funny story, I picked up many controllers back in the day and returned them after a week. But the one that really stuck with me, was when one of my buddies from the military owned a lounge, and at the time was looking for a DJ for his Halloween event. Despite not knowing a thing about DJing, the pay was too good to turn down. Later that day I picked up a controller and taught myself at the gig.
