From growing up on the market stalls, and around the Pub game in London – to working in the heart of the Club scene as a Doorman, Jay (The Begga) Moss, has breathed in & out all genre’s of music. Beats, Bass and Rhythm has always – and will always be in his life…
Jay, although starting a little bit later in the DJ game compared to others, has steadily & surely built up from having a passionate hobby, to going full steam ahead with pushing out his own take on what makes people jump and bounce.
Growing up listening to 70’s & 80’s pop, Soul & Funk & Disco. Rare Groove & Lover’s Rock. Then onto the Rave Scene as a teenager – and onto the raw London club scene, moving forward into Jungle, Dub and Drum & Bass. Living and experiencing the UK Garage scene but always into House & Techno. listening to pirate staples like Girls FM / Don FM etc, where he found his ear for the music genre attuned. And he’s never looked back.
Learning from long time friends on his way. Such as Paul Wilkins (Hed Kandi), Chris Trokey, Dan Bewick (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), Dave Silcox (Marcellus Wallace), he perfected his growing talent and moved on to playing warm up sets to get a feel for Club DJing. Soon after combining forces with other DJ friends to form ‘Digital Signal’ – A three piece group comprising of Himself, Leon (Crossova) Smith and Andre Scarlett (Scarlett Hunter) securing a regular Monday night slot on the award winning FREEK FM – then Himself moving onto a regular weekly residency spot every Saturday evening on IMINRADIO.com (where the NEWWKNDMVMNT was born) , before moving onto CONSCIOUS SOUNDS/UWC/FOAM RADIO.
Alongside DJing, Jay and team has also procured and ran their own events at prestigious venues such as Electric Lounge, Club K, Proud Camden & London City, EggLdn, Warehouse Ldn, Hoxton Gallery and McQueen (Shoreditch)
Moving forward as always Jay and team procured ‘FOREVER AND A DAY’ – An All Day/Night extravaganza of House & Techno. Procured With Love. Supporting and showcasing big names such as East End Dubs, Archie Hamilton, YAYA, Anthea, Scott Kemp, Jess Bays, Tech Twin (Ben Murphy) and N:Fostell.
His latest events in & around London are EL-MUSICA combining the talents of Souled:Out LDN (Jay, Crossova & Neil Davies) & House Matters, hosted at TRAFIK (Shoreditch) and the Long standing PRELOADED hosted at ‘The Magic Roundabout – Old Street, and at Near & Far – Peckham Levels.
At the moment, Jay is starting to dabble in creating his own music and will soon unleash his own brand of electronic sounds. Until then, Jay’s 1st love of DJing will always take centre stage as he endeavours to play out as much as he can, wherever he can.
‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder – Music runs much the same rule -so be true and listen to the beat from your heart’
