JD. Reid is a 24 year old Music Producer / DJ from London, UK. Starting off as young producer in the London Grime scene, JD has gone on to tailor his sound to what is now a crossover of genres, taking influence from Hip-Hop, Electronic and Soul/R&B.
He sits alongside the new wave of producers bringing a future sound, with two EP’s Word Gets Around (May 2012) and 88 (Sep 2013) showcasing his versatility and vibe as a producer.
