There’s not many in today’s scene whose music you can instantly recognise, but Jay Vegas is quickly becoming one of them, having developed his own unique twisted disco sound.
2010 saw the beginning of Jay’s solo venture after moving on from previous alias Groove Invaderz. Since conception Jay’s funky style has been well received, his tracks have gained support from many world renowned DJ’s and producers. Grant Nelson in particular has helped to push his sound by regularly featuring Jay’s tracks on the Housecall Radio Show. Playmore and MuzikxPress records have been instrumental in bringing Jay’s music to the fore by releasing a string of successful tracks like his remix of Hot Stuff – Happy Dayz which hit the Beatport top 20 along with Disco Fever and So High which reached Traxsource’s top 10.
In 2011 Jay joined San Francisco based heavywieght Jackin House Label Guesthouse – joining their roster of hugely talented artists such as DJ Sneak, Gramophonedzie, Sonny Fodera, Mastiksoul, House Inspectors and head honcho DJ Mes. His releases Paradise & Way Back topped the Traxsource charts and proved a hit with many international dj’s like DJ Dan and Doc Martin.
Jay is no stranger to the music scene as he began his career at the start of the 90’s alongside other local producers K-Klass and Matthew Roberts (formerly King Unique & Bottom Dollar). Working under different aliases the 90’s saw Jay remixing tracks for many successful pop stars such as Holly Johnson (Frankie Goes To Hollywood) & East 17 – Hey Child, which went on to became an Ibiza hit and Pete Tong’s “Essential New Tune” as did his remix of Kaya – My God is Real which he made for Eric Morrilo’s world famous record label Subliminal. Jay’s music has been released on all the recognised leading CD compilations: Ministry of Sound, Cream Anthems and Hed Kandi.
Let’s not forget Jay is also a talented Dj whose unique style of blending current house (be it Soulful, Disco, Tribal or Tech) with the classic tracks of yester-year have took him gigging around the world from Ibiza to as far as Australia.
