Jay Shelton has been a DJ since 1995, his first break was playing for a promoter called “massive” which was a large under 18’s dance event that toured the south east of England. He then started playing at local night clubs/bars in the London area, and through this he developed his dj technique through the various music scenes.
His biggest break was in 2000, where he was approached by a promoter of Bagley’s Film Studios in Kings Cross, and was offered the opportunity to join the team. At the time, Bagley’s was the biggest dance venue in London, and he became a resident DJ there every Saturday night playing U.S. Funky House alongside top DJ’s. He soon became popular with promoters of large nightclubs & Weekenders, who wanted to book him for their events (South Coast Weekender / UK Weekenders / Innovation Weekender). At these gigs he had the pleasure to work with RADIO 1, CLUB CLASS, DEVIOUS, GODSKITCHEN, INNOVATION, among others in the VIP Rooms, MAIN Arenas and supporting arenas.
He has also worked at big clubs such as: MINISTRY OF SOUND / MISS MONEYPENNYS / CANVAS / MADAME JOJOS / TURNMILLS and PACHA, where he played alongside DJ’s such as Norman Jay MBE / Brandon Block and Alex P / Jeremy Healy / Des Mitchell / Joey Negra / BBC Radio 1 DJ’s……
From 2007, he took a step back from the big stage to concentrate on his Graphic Designing career, however he continued to play at low key events and clubs in and around the London area.
In 2010 he left the UK and has since played at clubs in the South of France and is now based in Belgium.
