Jean Jacques Smoothie

Biography

Jean Jacques Smoothie is a British disc jockey, born in Gloucester as Steve Robson. He has been DJ-ing since 1994, beginning his DJ-ing in the back bar of a nightclub titled "the Cheesey Club".

He became a surprise one-hit wonder in later 2001 for the song "2 People" (with two different music videos), sampled from Inside My Love by Minnie Riperton, in the UK, which featured on many various artist-compilation albums at the time, such as on Pepsi Chart 2002 and Now That's What I Call Music! 50 (UK series), in addition to a remix on Hits 51.

In 1997, he founded the record label Plastic Raygun, on which he released his first single, "The Magnificent", under the name Brinkley Paste. Robson remarked "Don't ask me why I used that name. Basically it was badly produced big beat, but it sold 1,500 copies". His follow-up single, "Night Time", "combined disco with the funkier end of house". At this time, the Jean Jacques Smoothie stage name was first used, as Robson later remarked "So I decided to come up with a cheeky French name, and Jean Jacques Smoothie was born!".[citation needed]
