DJ Jimmy Jatt speaks
"I have a programme called Jimmy's Jump Off which is syndicated on MBI, STV, and NTA which is a DJ video mix show. It has been rated highly just in the first quarter. It's a basically going to be on old school raves, club parties like a mobile station. Then also I have to finish my album and proove to the world that I'm never going to retire from this job.
