Profile PicBorn in Vancouver, Canada in the year 1975, Jay has been a music fanatic all of his life. His career began in 1994 as a techno dj in Vancouver’s underground club and party scene. He was a frequent guest on Vancouver’s first techno radio show “Homebass” hosted by long-time friend,and Pioneer of Vancouver Techno, DJ Noah.

Jay is a believer in God, and has always felt His inspiration. Music has been a deep and direct channel by which his relationship continues to evolve and grow.

In 1997 he was one of the founding fathers of the infamous Munson Family production company. The Munson Family are responsible for the inception of the Carrington Bay Music Festival, which is currently in its 17th consecutive year.

In 2001 Jay focused his attention on producing his own sounds. With influences such as Sven Vath, Chris Liebing, Hardfloor, Spicelab, and D.A.V.E. The Drummer, Jay has developed his own unique brand of moody dark Techno with the underlying message of love.

May 2011 brought Jay his first release on Super 6 Records. “Lost in The Hive” is a three track EP melding through Techno and Acid.  Also released in 2011 on Super 6, was a two track EP titled “A Tribe Called Munson”, with a groovy, dirty Techno/Tribal feel.

In May 2012 Subspec Music released “Near Future”, a four track EP of Acidic Techno. It is a diverse representation of Jay’s musical taste and it has received solid reviews. Artists such as Slam, John Massey, Andrew Duke, Sone, Rennie Foster, and JGarrett have shown support.

In June 2012 a “remixes” ep of his original “The Meltdown” was released on Subspec. JGarrett and Keef Baker’s OCDC took the reigns with two very different yet complimentary renditions of the original.

2012 closed out with a Live PA performance in Vancouver @ Open Studios at the “GARY BECK – Bring A Friend Tour” event.

2013 has been very active for Jay. His original track “Hart Plaza” was released on February 19th on the “Subspecification” compilation. Following that his first full-length album ”Love Life” was released on March 14th. It features eight original tracks as well as remixes from WOODY MCBRIDE, and JGARRETT. The album has sparked a mini-tour of the cities Los Angeles, Seattle, and Detroit. Also in February Jay performed Live,  opening  for Scottish Techno Legends SLAM.

June 11th 2013, Flatlife Records released his “Phat Squid” ep. The release features two originals (Phat Squid/My House) as well as a remix of each track by DJ ESP and JGARRETT. Following that, the “Phat Squid Remixes” EP will be released with remixes from D.A.V.E. THE DRUMMER, 2JUNXION, and JACK WAX.

This Autumn/Winter look for Jay’s remix of RAFH & RE_CLICK‘s original “Unleash The Kraken“, as well as “The Meltdown Remixes 2” featuring remixes from HARDFLOOR, JOHN MASSEY, MIXLOGISTICS, and JAY ZONEY himself.
