Jimmy DePre

Oakland, United States of America

Giving Love with The Music

Jimmy DePre began his professional DJ career in his hometown of Philadelphia in 2002 at the age of 15, landing a job with iconic radio personality and DJ, Jerry Blavat. Over the next 6 years, he worked some of the best bars, nightclubs, and casinos in the Philadelphia/New Jersey area and beyond.

Going solo in 2008, he held two residences in both Philadelphia and New Hope before being asked to be the Friday & Saturday night DJ at Tavern on Camac in 2009. While at the helm, Jimmy saw Tavern on Camac be voted “Best Dance Spot” by Philadelphia Magazine in 2017. His eclectic taste and knowledge in all styles of house, disco, funk and soul, combined with his innate ability to read a crowd, has allowed him to work many different types of parties and spaces. Venues in places like NYC, Boston, DC, Fire Island, and many other East Coast destinations have welcomed him into their booth over the years. In 2014, legendary Trocadero Transfer DJ, Bobby Viteritti, brought him on as a featured resident for his monthly Classics Never Die party at Meridian 23 in New York. The following summer, Shep Pettibone even featured him regularly at his poolside Tea Dances in Asbury Park.

Throughout his career, Jimmy DePre has shared the bill with many DJs and friends including Paul Goodyear, Razor N Guido, David Harness, Michael Fierman, Susan Morabito and Robbie Leslie, along with performers like Kevin Aviance, Sandy B, and Deborah Cox.

Always curious about San Francisco, Jimmy visited in 2014 and quickly became enamored. He soon began making regular trips to the West Coast, frequently guest spotting at Go BANG! and the Lookout. In the Summer of 2018, he chose to end his 9 year residency at Tavern on Camac and move to Oakland. Since then, Jimmy’s continued spinning around the Bay Area. He’s now a full time member of both Go BANG! and DAD BANG!, plays regularly at Lookout and has begun a party at Driftwood called Get Busy with a few friends.

Along with DJing, Jimmy also creates his own edits, remixes and productions. Lately, he’s often found collaborating with his partner, Jeremy Rosebrook, both in the studio and occasionally in the DJ booth.
