Jay James was born in Toronto, and moved to Brampton Ontario, when quite young. Many years later in 2000, Jay moved to the United States; where he experienced the first sounds of “techno” music in Detroit, Michigan where he lived. This changed him for years to come as this wasn't like anything he had heard before, and loved it!
As a former percussionist and brass musician, music has always been a part in Jay’s life. For a brief stint, Jay was in a band where he played the role of lead vocalist and backup drummer. Within this chapter of his music career, Jay combines DJ’ing and music production. Jay treats DJ’ing as a fine art and definitely is a passion until his end of days…
He currently lives in the Greater Toronto Area, dedicates himself to playing soulful and deep house. The influences of Detroit techno sounds can still be heard in his music production and mixes today.
