Jimmy DePre

Oakland, United States of America

Giving Love with The Music

With a sound reminiscent to the golden era of bathhouses and T dances Jimmy DePre pushes out a legacy of queer culture to new generations through tasteful track selections and innovative mixing that can only be described as cruisey, boozey & ambrosial.

Philadelphia native Jimmy DePre began his professional DJ career in 2002 at the age of 15 landing a job with iconic radio personality and DJ, Jerry Blavat. In 2009, he began his 10 year Friday & Saturday residency at Tavern on Camac, which in 2017 was voted “Best Dance Spot” by Philadelphia Magazine. During this time, gig highlights include a residency at Bobby Viteritti’s Classics Never Die and guest spots at Shep Pettibone’s summer poolside Tea Dances in Asbury Park.

Committed to respecting the history and importance of the queer contribution to dance music, one of Jimmy’s biggest honors was being asked to play the weekend-long Fire Island celebration marking the 50 year inception of Tea Dance alongside Robbie Leslie, Max Rodriquez & Randy Bettis. Always curious about San Francisco, Jimmy visited in 2014 and fell in love. He played his first guest spot at Go BANG! in 2015 and quickly began traveling more and more frequently to the Bay Area. After guesting at various venues during his visits, Jimmy decided to move to Oakland in 2018.

His knowledge, drive and unique style quickly led him to becoming a resident at Go BANG!. He’s since played, both solo and with his partner Jeremy Rosebrook, at parties put on by David Harness, Comfort & Joy, Big Muscle, Polyglamorous and Electroluxx, just to name a few. He currently spins a few times a month at Lookout and has recently started a new party at F8 called HOTHOUSE alongside Steve Fabus and Prince Wolf. As Jimmy embarks on his 19th year of sharing music, he’s excited to continue to share his passion of past, present and future with the dance floor.
