FOR the past 16 years or so, Jason Jay has been a mainstay on the DJ scene, bringing the party to the decks at promotions left, right and centre.Right now, Jason is enjoying regular slots at Ministry of Sound, and Hed Kandi, where he’ll be on Saturday night.
There’s travel available, if you fancy making the journey for an earful – Jason is laying on transport. Not any old transport, mind.
“I’m taking people in stretch limos,” he says, which beats the hell out of a trip on an old coach.
Like his travel, his live sets are out of the ordinary too.
“I’m versatile, and don’t stick to just one genre, I always like to put a twist on stuff and do something different to give a different edge,” Jason says, and it’s a formula that has worked well for him.
His style has given the local player an international edge, and Jason is a regular on billings in summertime Ibiza, where he will return soon, in-between a hectic schedule of live activity closer to home.
Imminent dates include a session at the MK Tattoo Convention After Party on June 9.
Jason will join scene-stalwart Slipmatt (who dance fans will remember from his explosive sets at the Sanctuary, Helter Skelter and Dreamscape) for the bash at Kents Hill Conference Centre.
And you thought tattoo-fests were only reserved for the rocker fraternity...
“When you go to Ibiza, there are people covered head to toe in tattoos now. All the young kids are into it, and when you play these events, people really enjoy it.”
A Choice FM DJ has been roped in as well, bringing the R&B flavas to the show, ‘cause tatt’s entertainment...
If tattoos aren’t your bag and you have no intention of heading to the white isle this summer, you can still catch the new-city ace at work about the place.
Last year, Jason was on the billing for the Summer Fayre in Campbell Park, and when the Fayre returns in August (3,4 and 5th), Mr Jay will be blasting out the tunes on a daily basis, offering house and old skool to the masses.
“It’s a great event for Milton Keynes and really nice to be giving something back to all those people who have paid to turn out and support us for so long,” Jason says.
“There will be something for everyone too, with a dance village in play the whole weekend, and it ain’t going to cost you a penny,” he says, warming to the subject.
“It was a big success last year and it’s going to be bigger and better this time.
“I think it’s really important for the city.”
