About

JAY FUNK:-

Having been working the turntables for over 20 years and been in the industry for over 15,the last 10 years Jay has entertained crowds around the world in literally hundreds of different venues and held residencies and guested at some the worlds most famous clubs,festivals and venues including Space,Eden,Es Paradis, El Divino Ibiza, wowing crowds with blissful house sounds lovingly mixed together with skill,
Whether it be playing infront of thousands at festivals across europe or to just a few hundred at intimate venues, Jay feels at ease as long as the music and crowd are as one, together loving life and breathing music!

Not Just content with playing house, Jay has many alter egos playing mashup mixes and multi-genre sets at festivals across Europe, the most prominent figure being the Rawkus Noise! guise.

A veteran DJ of some 20 years, Jay got into beats from a very young age, influenced by the soul, funk and disco records of his fathers record collection, Jay knew that his destiny was in music.

After purchasing his first decks aged 12, Jay practised every waking hour to hone his skills that would take him on a journey he could only have dreamed of!

As a forward thinking DJ, Jay started playing Hardcore at raves aged just 14 and studied his idols Masters At Work, Carl Cox , DJ Ratty and Derrick Carter to give him the edge on other DJs around him and was soon noticed as a promising young DJ; with a big career ahead of him.

As his musical tastes matured, Jay got into US House and garage eventually taking him into the skippy beats of then, the start of the UK garage scene. After many free gigs and a lot of hard graft, Jay quickly gained residencies throughout the East of England and was considered one of the hottest DJs on this scene, playing for many huge promotions such as Garage Nation, Inspiration, karisma, Bon Bon, Pamshouse and many radio stations; Jay hosted his own show on Flex FM( East of England) for 5 years as well as guesting on other radio stations.

Eventually Jay started his own promotions and record label (Finesse recordings) with studio whiz NJC and co-DJ Danny J, they released remixes and bootlegs and the club promotion propelled Jay into bigger clubs to gain valuable experience behind the decks as well as behind the scenes.

Jay Always kept his love of house music and when the UK garage scene moved into 2-step, Jay disliked the change to the music and moved 100% back into house, a decision which paid off.

Jay quickly gained many residencies and guested up and down the country at clubs including M.O.S London, Heaven , Turnmills, Bar Rhumba, Aquarium, Honey Club Brighton, Matrix Reading, Hollywood Ipswich Uea Norwich,Essex Uni,Tidy Weekenders, Ibiza BIG Reunion Weekenders and more. He has also become in demand across Europe and played for MOS tours in Switzerland,Mallorca as well as dates in Slovenia,Croatia,Wales, Ireland, Ibiza, Cyprus, Australia, Thailand,Laos and the USA! ( See Club listings page)

Jay's multi-deck scratch infused sets of Soulful, Latin, Tribal, Funky Jacking-Elec-Tech sounds made him stand out from other DJ's and his ear for future big tunes got him head-hunted to be the resident for Tonic in Ibiza, where Jay spent his first season playing weekly at Eden and the Space Terrace in 2003. His electric sets soon got him attention on the island and was soon playing gigs at venues such as El Divino, Bora Bora, Es Paradis,Plastik, Hush,Orange Corner, Itaca,Kanya Holiday FM, Live Mix Shows Back to the uk from the Mambo Studios and many other underground locations.

Jay was asked back to be the weekly resident at Space on the terrace for Good Fridays where he rubbed shoulders with some of his favourite DJ's. This is where he started his legendary 5 deck sets which blew away clubbers and promoters alike, and led to gigs across Europe and a residency for Garlands at Eden. Jay enjoyed a weekly main room and funky room slot, where his "Classics" sets packed the room out to capacity every week. Ibiza summer 2005 saw Jay back behind the scenes running Tidy Vs Extreme Euphoria @ Es Paradis for it's launch season where he played opening sets in the main room with tough House, but it was his quirky colourful promotion " PocoDisco" upstairs in The Gallery which had the dancefloors jammed with his mix of Funky , Balearic and Electro House. Followed by after parties at Blue Impact ( Extasis) becoming the place to loon out at after the clubs all kicked out!

Jay has gained much respect from his peers and fellow DJs he respects highly,

Danny Rampling said to him on the Space Terrace Aug 2004 "By the time you're my age, you could be one of the best in the world!"
