Best known as a founding member of acclaimed DJ crew SunTzu Sound, J-Justice is driven by a faithful following in Seattle and beyond. His tireless efforts have made him an indispensable participant in Seattle nightlife.

Along with fellow SunTzu Sound founder, Atlee Treasure, J-Justice regularly books and promotes top-shelf international talent and has served as weekly host of Friday night’s City Soul radio show on KBCS since 2004.
