JaBig is a House Music DJ from Montréal, Canada who gained international recognition from his 500+ DEEP & DOPE DJ mixes which have been streamed for over 7 billion hours on YouTube, SoundCloud, Spotify, Apple Music and Mixcloud.
Consequently, he is constantly commissioned to spin his signature sets in clubs, at festivals and private engagements all over the world.
Jean-Aimé Bigirimana, DJ JaBig, was born in Rwanda but moved to Kenya at a young age where he grew up and in his late teens lived in South Africa before settling in Montréal, Canada in his early twenties where it’s been home ever since.
In his formative years, JaBig attended international schools, outside his own country of origin, where he made friends from different countries and cultures and with it came exposure and a keen interest to music from various parts of the world,
His extensive musical knowledge from such a young age made him the natural choice to be selected as the music curator at birthday parties and school events in Nairobi, Kenya all the way into his university years in Johannesburg and Pretoria, South Africa.
Upon moving to Canada, JaBig very quickly became a favourite fixture in the local Montréal scene and found himself performing in the most venerable venues and at the hottest events in town. Soon enough, invitations to spin his signature sets started pouring in from other cities across Canada.
Massive international recognition happened thanks to YouTube, the most popular video-sharing website but also the number one music streaming service in the world.
In 2011, JaBig uploaded a back catalogue of his live DJ set recordings and mixed compilations albums from Classical Music, Jazz, Bossa Nova, Zouk, Kizomba and mainly House Music, his most predominant genre. Within six months these DEEP & DOPE DJ mixes had been streamed by music lovers in every single country on the planet and accumulated millions of streams in the process.
Since then, JaBig has travelled to many cities on the planet performing live for his fanbase which mostly discovered his DJ sets on YouTube and he is currently setting for a continuous round-the-world DJ tour to spin live sets in every single country where his fans live, an epic trip that he will undertake by bicycle and by car but that is a whole other story!
