Jake Nissen started his DJ journey while attending college, and immediately fell in love. He was soon honing his skills DJ’ing at local bars and night clubs, and working as a sound engineer in the on-campus recording studio. By the time he graduated in 2010 with a degree in Media Arts from the University of Montana, Jake’s interest in music/DJ’ing/music production had grown into a true passion and career path.
Since his graduation, Jake continued to thrive in the Montana nightlife scene, branched out to DJ’ing weddings and corporate events; and his background in fitness led him to become co-founder and manager of a highly esteemed Crossfit gym. Earlier in 2015, ready for a change of scenery, (not to mention being around his close friend and Beat Train DJ, Nick Ferrington), Jake decided to relocate to Boston. We are happy to have is as a part of the Beat Train DJ roster, as well as a new additional the administrative team!
Jake’s wide range of musical interests include funk, classic rock, 80s, grunge, hip-hop, house, pop, and anything with a danceable beat. When he isn’t tirelessly searching for new music to add to his repertoire you might find him exercising, binge watching Netflix, soaking up the latest pop culture trivia, playing his favorite video game or working on his own music production.
Jake’s talent, years of experience, passion, winning personality, and tireless quest for excellence make him a great choice to be your DJ!
