J. Worra

Jamie Sitter, a.k.a. “J. Worra” is a rising force in the underground scene, best known for her creativity as a producer and skills behind the decks. She lends these unique skills to every area of her life spanning music, fashion, and art.

Most recently hailed as DJ Mag’s 2019 Breakthrough Music Producer of the Year, her most recent tracks include “I Feel It” [Farris Wheel] and a remix for Gryffin and Gorgon City’s “Baggage (with AlunaGeorge).”

Emanating from Chicago has had an eminent impact on J.Worra’s music trajectory. Having caught the music bug at a young age, she begged her parents to buy her music lessons, but to no avail. Without giving up hope, she bought an electric piano and an old acoustic guitar found at a garage sale to start. Eventually, her curiosity led her to electronic music in 2010 when she bought production software, self-teaching with Google and YouTube as the occasional mentors. Jamie’s passion, with a mixture of strong work ethic, helped her develop a baseline of knowledge and skills.

Early in her career, Jamie won various DJ competitions for Groove Cruise and Spring Awakening Music Festival. Those wins quickly equated to various club shows and notable festival plays throughout the years at Dirtybird Campout, Lightning In a Bottle, HARD, CRSSD, Beyond Wonderland, Holy Ship!, Splash House, EDC, and Coachella.

In the last two years, Jamie has been climbing the ranks and gaining recognition from notable industry trades such as Insomniac, DJ Mag and Mixmag. These skills have secured releases on various labels like Insomniac’s In/Rotation, Dirtybird, Sweat It Out, Perfect Driver, Mau5trap (official remix for Deadmau5), an official remix for Kaskade’s anthemic ‘Tight’ ft. Madge, and has upcoming releases planned with Thrive Records, a subsidiary of Capitol Records. Currently, Jamie is working on unreleased music and preparing for an album in 2020.

Recently, she has launched her own record label imprint called Arrow Recordings (Worra spelled backward) as an outlet to showcase her productions and collaborations with artists that push boundaries. While the label is not currently taking submissions, eventually they will unearth artists the world will want to hear. Fans can also expect unique, fashion-forward designs from the Arrow Clothing line.

Presently, she lives in Los Angeles with her Bischon Poodle named Peter. When she’s not performing, Jamie likes to cook and support local charities addressing mental illness, support for LGBTQ youth and animal rescue.

As Jamie’s meteoric rise continues to unfold, she’ll be remembered as someone who pushed boundaries and makes a positive impact on the world.

Testimonials

Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”

If you want to know about our industry from the people that make it happen then go to WMC. It’s an accelerated masterclass in all things dance music.

DJ/Intec Records

I feel fortunate to have been part of the first-ever WMC. Over the 35 years, it has grown to give us an international forum where we exchange music and ideas. As an attendee and host of many of the award shows, I am proud each time I see new young talent emerge and then become world-renowned. We all have so many Winter Music Conference moments of hearing a seminal breakthrough record for the first time as well as a new DJ with star quality. Magical moments in my career.

Glassnote Records

Winter Music Conference was the cream of the crop of conferences. Every label owner, label A&R, DJ and artist knew they had to go network at the Fontainebleau where the conference was hosted. The conference was not only one of the most important time of the year as it relates to dance music but it was also a place where records were broken and became summer hits. Some of my best DJ memories are from the events I played during WMC in the last 20 years.

DJ / Producer / Label Boss - Subliminal Records

Having only missed the very first year of WMC in 1985, it was 1986-1990 that initially placed me on the map globally due to the international attendance of the entire dance music community. All throughout the 90s I was often getting written about by various high profile mags and websites for having contributed to help break many artists, DJs, producers and remixers. WMC enabled me to bring many top industry people together all under one roof, especially at Groove Jet, where house music officially met Techno in my sets and it’s all been uphill since…TBC
