Born in Nottingham, MistaJam grew up listening to the records of his parents and began DJing at local events at the age of 14, going on to DJ for Nottingham hip hop crew Out Da Ville and for a local pirate radio station. With associate Joe Buhdha, he ran SureShot Entertainment organising the UK Takeover events.
His show on BBC Radio 1, tag lined the "Saturday Night Soundclash", is broadcast on Saturday nights between 7 pm - 10pm and is broadcast simultaneously on BBC Radio 1Xtra. The show is part of Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra's Urban Music strand on Saturday nights. Musically, the show claims to represent Dubstep, UK funky, grime, hip hop, R&B, drum and bass, house, reggae, dancehall and "everything in between".
His BBC Radio 1Xtra show is broadcast Monday to Thursday between 7 p.m.-10 p.m. The show covers new urban music across a "broad spectrum" of genres and was intended to bridge the gap not only between the mainstream and specialist worlds but also between genres. Tag lined 'the key to the underground', the show also features his "Jam Hot" (record of the week) the "Daily Dose of Dubstep" weekly DJ guest mixes and regular sessions from the BBC's Maida Vale Studios.
Since March 2011, as part of the show, the free Dubstep Download was launched and is available to UK listeners to download.
In June 2010, Adidas approached MistaJam to host a video diary of Glastonbury Festival, including his DJ set in the East Dance Tent. The diary captures footage of interviews and MistaJam backstage with his peers. It also includes footage of his hugely popular live set.
He has his own show on BBC Two called No Hats, No Trainers, which aired in May. The show was well received within its demographic and was commissioned for a second series, the first episode of which aired on 4 September 2010.
MistaJam also featured on a track with Knife Party in 2012, named "Sleaze" which contains MistaJam singing "until they kick us out, until they kick us out, until they kick us out, people move your feet" with audio effects applied to his voice.
Since the end of 2015, he's also been hosting his show on Pitbull's Sirius XM's Globalization Channel 4 (Saturdays 8-10 PM EST/ Sundays 10 am - 12.00 pm EST), spreading his eclectic sound to a global audience for the first time.
On 16 May 2016, MistaJam performed a set live at Victoria Park in Leicester for the victory parade after Leicester City won the Premier League title.
In October 2016, MistaJam won the ARIAS Music Broadcaster of the Year award for his BBC Radio 1Xtra Show.
On 2 January 2017, MistaJam took over the 7pm – 9pm slot on BBC Radio 1 whilst Annie Mac was on maternity leave.
