In an industry constantly changing and demanding more, few disc jockeys have consistently been able to adapt and push conventional limits, better then Jay Velar.
Jay's journey began when he first witnessed the complex art of deejaying. He knew right then that he had found his calling. It was this passion that drove him to spend hours locked away perfecting his craft and striving to reach new creative limits.
In just under five years, the young aspiring disc jockey and producer can boast more accomplishments then most will in their entire career. With thousands of followers and millions having heard his music, he has emerged as one of the nations hardest working DJs and is responsible for some of the biggest remixes played in night clubs today.
Early in his career, Jay was eager to set himself apart from others and began producing mash-ups and remixes. Within a year, he found himself alongside some of the most recognized names in the industry when he was asked to join Crooklynclan.net, where he remains a top seller. Additionally, in late 2011, he was enlisted by DJ Kontrol and Lil Jon himself to remix their single, "Get Naked". This collaboration resulted in a chart topping hit on Beatport.com, further reaffirming his hit making abilities. With his career accelerating at a rapid pace, he has been contracted to remix numerous singles for various record labels. This young artist's talents have clearly not gone unnoticed.
In a day and age, where the term "disc jockey" is loosely applied to anyone who can play a song, few like Jay can seamlessly bridge the gap between genres and react to the vibe of a room. Jay recognizes his job as a disc jockey is not only to introduce new music, but also to rely on time tested favorites, playing them differently than anything the listener has heard before.
