We are thrilled to announce the first-ever recipient of the Jaime Yates Scholarship! Current student, Jeremy West was the 2022 scholarship reciepient.
This year marks the first annual Jaime Yates Music Scholarship. It was named in honour of the late Nimbus alumni, Jaime Yates. Unfortunately, Jaime was taken from his family and friends too soon. Nevertheless, he achieved many of his dreams in his brief time here. He lived a life filled with music, art, travel, DJ’ing, and producing. He also developed music for clubs, radio, festivals, and video games. Jaime was a wonderful son, an exceptional friend, and a beautiful human. He will always be greatly loved and missed.
Jaime was known in the music industry as DJ Critical. You can find his music on many online radio sites, including Pandora, Spotify, iTunes, Soundcloud, Beatport, and YouTube.
You can also support this scholarship fund by purchasing Critical’s latest release, Never Letting Go. This album features some of his best electronic hits. 100% of all proceeds, minus taxes, are donated to Jaime’s Scholarship Fund.

DJ Critical has been featured in Beatport’s Top 100 Dubstep, Breaks, and Glitch Hop charts. His remix of MELT made it to #1 on the TrackItDown Dubstep top 100. His early vinyl work led to radio play from BBC Radio One on the legendary Annie Nightingale’s show (UK). DJ Critical’s work also gained radio play and a tour in Spain. He even got to guest mix for The Crystal Method on the weekly “Community Service” show on Sirius Satellite Radio. In addition, Critical did remix work for Playma, and had his music remixed by artists such as Calvertron and Nom De Strip.
