Jarrad is founder of JET BLACK, a creative booking agency building a platform to showcase both local and international talent across Southern Africa. Jarrad is a well known and well liked integral member of the South African Music Scene.
Jarrad has worked through many facets of the music industry, from radio to clubs, as well as managing some of Africa’s most prolific electronic artists and soon realised that he needed to centralise all aspects of their management, from bookings to A&R, from PR to Publishing, consolidating their administration and working on their brand development. Currently Jarrad is manager to some of the top tier and developing electronic acts from South Africa, as well as A&R for labels such as Get Physical, Label owner of Bantwanas, he is also working on projects to develop local talent. He has shared platforms with some of the most respected individuals in electronic music at conferences such as ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event), given guest talks at colleges such as SAE and continues to contribute and collaborate to grow the South African scene. In so doing he has brought them together in the first and only full service platform for boutique electronic acts in Africa (and now beyond). From there, the natural progression was to constitute and incorporate JET BLACK into his portfolio to give a professional approach for all artist bookings in the country.
