warrington - United Kingdom
DeeJay Jamie Jay began as a writer of a graffiti crew called FTV. In the summer of 1988, I spent several months in Manchester, Uk, attending club events at Hacienda and Boardwalk watching the heats of DMC and and buying the new tunes at Spin in Records. It was there that I fell in love with hiphop music. Back in Warrington , I teamed up with Tasker who was already creating a name for himself in the Graffiti scene in Northwest. Until then, I had mostly been spinning hip-hop and funk. In the Summer of 1990 i discorverd a club that rocked a new vibe that was House music. House quickly rose popularity throughout the Northwest and the rest of the U.K .This is where i got my first taste of dance music, importing from the USA trolling record shops for that rare gem. As my taste was allways HipHop the piano tunes from Italy was replaced by a new cool sound that was Early Drum n Bass, Jungle. This music improved my Djing skills tenfold, cutting two records up, playing around with the rythmic dynamics. I began to get a reputation for solid mixes diverse in style that was popular in the Northwest, mainly playin private partys and ilegal events.
