Music has always been my number 1 passion, even as a young child. I recall having a preference for more “clubby” type music and electro sounds, such as Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics. Growing up in Brixton, I then fell in love with Hip-Hop when I first heard Run DMC as a teenager and was hugely inspired by their DJ, Jam Master Jay.

I then spent 15 years DJing house parties, universities and became resident DJ at West End nightclubs and cocktail bars in Soho. I eventually found my way into radio presenting, hosting my own show dedicated to old-school (or “old-SKOOL” to keep it real!) classic anthems from the 90s.

You can still listen to old episodes via iTunes here or www.soundcloud.com/DJJayQ The show made it to No 1 in the independent podcast charts, with thousands of downloads/plays each week from all over the globe.

DJ Jay Q Music has built up a strong reputation in the private function market – providing entertainment for high-end weddings, corporate clients and family functions.

DJ Jay Q Music has been booked for events at The Gherkin, The Dorchester, Queen’s Tennis Club and Oval Cricket Ground. We were also chosen to DJ the ‘wrap party’ for the cast of the Inbetweeners 2 movie in 2014.

I still love playing bars and clubs – I’m one of the resident DJs at The Falcon in Clapham North and Bison & Bird, Clapham Common. I also make the odd cameo appearance at festivals (I was on the same bill as Ghostface Killah from the Wu-Tang Clan in 2014).
