In 2010, JED HARPER decided to hang up the name “JEDI”, and focus on electronic music production full time, under his real name. “I was spending so much time in the studio writing music, and everything that was coming out of me was house music”, explains Jed. “I had wanted to drop the name JEDI for a while; and I felt like this was the right time to do it. I was making a change in my music direction; and this seemed like a good anchor to identify the change”. To further signify the change in his sound, JED HARPER also started producing events through BAD CONCEPT RECORDS and began inviting guests such as JOACHIM GARRAUD, EDDIE HALLIWELL, and MICHAEL WOODS to perform. “I didn’t want to be producing electronic music all day, and then playing mash-up sets at night; it didn’t make any sense”, continues Jed. “I had 6 weekly residencies at the time, and was playing out from Tuesday to Sunday. So I pulled out of a few of my projects to focus on producing events that catered to my sound. My new focus is to make BAD CONCEPT RECORDS a completely 360 label, and have all of the projects I’m working on compliment each other”.
2011 sees JED HARPER continue with his fully loaded schedule; including DJ tour dates across North America, an onslaught of both original & remix productions, and producing events around the Toronto area.
