Jay-J is a house DJ and producer from San Francisco. He has released over 120 recordings since his 1995 debut.[1] From his Moulton Studios he has collaborated with producers and DJs including Kaskade, Miguel Migs, Marques Wyatt, Halo, Julius Papp, Mark Grant and Chris Lum.

Jay-J has toured the world, performing at La Terraza (Spain), Pacha (Ibiza), Zouk (Singapore) and Ministry of Sound (United Kingdom). Last year, Jay-J performed live at the 2006 MTV Australia Video Music Awards, on both the Red Carpet and during the Awards Show.

In 2008, Jay-J was selected as one of 8 musical artists (which included Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Kaskade, Jes, Serge Devant, Lucas Prata & Cezar) for Coca Cola's WE8 project for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Each musical artist was provided with a theme and using music as their form of expression, created a song that expanded on their inspiration drawn from the theme.

Jay-J has also released numerous compilations including his latest, “Re:Souled | The Shifted Music Remix Collection” (CSR) as well as co-producing Latrice’s debut artist album, “Illuminate” (Ultra), with Kaskade. 2007 kicked off with the release of Jay-J & Friends Volumes 1-3; the complete collection of re-mastered tracks from his Moulton Studio Recordings and Multitracked catalogues as well as select classic productions from the past 15 years.
