To say that vinyl records are a part of Jamison Harvey aka DJ Prestige’s life is an understatement. A DJ and vinyl advocate for over 20 years, Prestige has been a vocal champion for all things vinyl through his live shows and here at Flea Market Funk. On this site he rescues these often forgotten artists of Funk,Soul, Jazz, Reggae and Hip Hop and their music from obscurity while also preserving them through original mixes, reviews, and live sets. This dedication to this music has forged a name for Prestige and Flea Market Funk.

DJ Prestige has toured nationally as a DJ for the Lava/ Atlantic record label as well as opened for such diverse artists as Q-Tip, Bad Brains, and Joss Stone among many others while also doing parties for corporate clients such as Google, You Tube, KIA, Adidas, Universal Pictures, Victoria’s Secret, Major League Soccer, Nixon, Corbis, The Bethanny Frankel Show, SoulCycle, The Surfrider Foundation and more. Based out of Jersey City, NJ, he currently can be seen in residencies at the Ace Hotel, bar belly, and Friends and Lovers in NYC as well as parties and events around the country. He is a Production Coordinator and Contributing Writer on Dust & Grooves: Adventures In Record Collecting, the first photo book on vinyl collectors and their collections by photographer Eilon Paz and has been featured on the site as well as contributions of exclusive all vinyl mixes and live sets to Dust & Grooves events.

Prestige’s DJ style crosses genres like a good mix tape: hip hop, rock, funk, soul, reggae and beyond blend together seamlessly as he pays tribute to the philosophy of Bronx in the 1970’s. A time where there were no musical boundaries, only good music that brought a diverse audience together and kept them moving and grooving all night long.
