This vinyl enthusiast discloses his « Universal Mix » in Europe since more than 10 years and those who met him still remember him.
More than a simple DJ, Freddy Jay is a jack of all trades.
Author, composer and sometimes singer, he above all became famous to the audience behind his turntables. A micro always easy to reach, full of energy he scratches his electro black LP to brilliantly marry them to funk and disco. He remixes under our stunned eyes soul standards into house music, hip hop or broken beat with an unashamed flowing style.
His perfect technique, his charisma and naturally his musical selection allowed him to perform beside the biggest: Eric Morillo, Bob Sinclar, Laurent Wolf or Kenny Dope Gonzales and in prestigious French venues such as the Queen, the Élysée Montmartre, the Étoile, Bercy etc…
Freddy Jay released his 1st solo album in 2003 and the famous RADIO NOVA made an underground hit of, “I wanna dance”, giving to the only song he’s singing a special rank in its playlist.
Prestigious brands requested him as much for his DJ talents as for his composer abilities…
DOCKERS or REEF clothing brands, cable CUISINE TV (Cooking TV), or DESPERADOS beer brand will also need his composer talents. He created as well the advertising soundtrack of “La Carte illimitée” (unlimited mobile card) heard before the film in all UGC cinemas…
His collaboration with DESPERADOS together with his friends from the artists’ collective “9ème concept” continues since 10 years now.
The SOLIDAYS Festival, the F.I.S.E., the MIX’N FLY, the FABULOUS TOURNAMENT, the O’NEIL SURF CONTEST of Anglet or the SFR TOUR are such events linked to sliding sports or to music that trusted him.
He was the one who opens for the soul-jazz diva Marlena Shaw at the Paris New Morning and was chosen to delight the ears of the legendary Stevie Wonder during his after show at the Paris Comedy Club.
He remains since five year resident of the leading Parisian parties “CAR WASH” and “IN FUNK WE TRUST” and organizes since a little time his own parties at the Jamel Debbouze Comedy Club he’s also resident of.
The word of mouth and internet videos allows him to be known by foreign organizers. He was then invited to perform in Iceland, Guyana, Austria, Spain, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Portugal, etc…
With a wealth of these stage experiences, Freddy Jay is undeniably more than a simple DJ.
He’s first and foremost a charismatic man with rich and eclectic musical culture, a musical gold-digger of any kind, a turntable virtuoso and above all a formidable showman.
But above all these talents, it’s definitively his love for the audience and the stage that indisputably made out of him one of the best of France.
