Jay Enna - has been around for over a decade in and out of the music scene.
His career started in 1998 as a DJ on an underground radio station, Divine FM, when he was just 16 years of age. He played house and garage for two years before the station changed its idea's and decided not to broadcast anymore. At this point, and early in his career, Jay was left questioning his next move.
His growing passion for music and the music industry led him to producing and writing at the age of 20. He'd realised that playing other peoples music wasn't enough, he wanted to create his own music.
Jay embarked on, and completed, a sound recording and music technology diploma. With his new found skills and knowledge he felt ready to push forward with his own vision. Jay has always had the passion, but at various points life circumstances had blocked his progression. He had now reached a point where he was able to match the passion with the determination.
Fast forward to 2010, and Jay began building on his own studio, investing in new equipment that allowed for more control over the music he was producing. It enabled the vocalists he was working with to record with him in his studio, meaning Jay was now able too see his projects through from the initial instrumental to final recorded track.
The last 12 months have seen massive growth and publicity for this versatile, talented producer. He has been working on various tracks with numerous artists and making valiant efforts to push his music forward to the mainstream. His ability to produce music from a variety of musical genres has made him a desirable producer for artists to work with. Most recently Jay has gone back to his roots as a DJ, playing out at events and re kindling his love for the house and garage scene. His main focus, however, is pushing forward with his producing and discovering new and up coming artists. To further improve his production skills and qualities, Jay has stepped outside the digital world and is now in the process of working on his use of live instruments, specifically the piano.
In early 2012 Jay Enna formed a collective consisting of himself, Benny Major and DJ Garmzie. They have collaborated under the moniker "Peace, Love and Audio". Penned by Jay Enna, this slogan summarises his attitude to, and vision for, his music.
Jay's versatility comes directly from the fact that he draws inspiration from DJ's, producers and artists from all musical genres. His style is a clear amalgamation of hip hop and electro with the use of a wide range of synthesisers and drum kits characterising his music. But lyrically he relies heavily on RnB and soul, the music that influenced him in his formative years.
For Jay Enna, Music is his Life. Whether he is producing new material, penning the next song, working on other artists material, or playing out to crowds, his heart and soul is in it.
2012 has seen things moving quickly, it's all go in every aspect of his career right now. So make sure you watch out and keep it locked.
Peace, Love & Audio!
