Norman Jay at drop
Arguably one of the finest and most respected deejays in the world today whose talents and dedication to a music career spanning well over two decades has earned him an MBE medal by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II in 2002.
Born in Notting Hill, London, his father’s influence got him hooked on all aspects of black music. In New York for the rise of 'disco' first time around, Jay played at most of the seminal New York venues including the legendary Paradise Garage, this was the beginning of an amazing career that have today's leading deejays refer to him quite simply as 'The deejay's DJ'.
In the late 70s, he built the now legendary GOOD TIMES SOUND SYSTEM, his fan based grew to the thousands. This led to starting the legendary pirate radio station Kiss FM in London, a magnet for emerging Djs including Danny Rampling and Jazzie B. His 'The Original Rare Groove Show' on Kiss 94fm led directly to the emergence of the cult late 80's underground dance phenomenon 'rare groove' scene that swept UK. With Judge Jules they mixed urban soundtracks from the 70's and 80's with the brand new sound coming out of Chicago and New York - the sound of HOUSE music!
In the 90s, he co-established the club 'High On Hope' introducing unknown US deejays and dance divas such as Louis Vega (MAW),Chaka Khan and En Vogue to the UK scene. Then, headhunted to launch a new label called Talkin Loud, he signed singer/songwriters such as Omar, Bryan Powell, Young Disciples, Galliano and Incognito.
With the global rise in interest in UK dance culture, Jay quit and returned to his first love - deejaying. Whether it's playing upfront disco fuelled funky house or much vaunted old skool jazz funk, hip hop or chilled out beats, he injects his rich musical heritage and quality in every set he plays.
With countless awards, accolades and albums under his belt, now he is simply touring the world bringing his style to parties, clubs and festivals and of course in Hong Kong – drop!
