Jay Roberts

A DJ & broadcaster for 3 decades, James knows how to put on a show!

A Housemasters DJ since 2018, Jay Roberts has been around for three decades as a DJ and broadcaster. Cutting his teeth in the Eclipse venue, Coventry, where he played breakbeat hardcore and acid house. He travelled around playing many times for nights like Scream (Plymouth), Hyperbolic in Kings Lynn, Grass Roots Records’ night at Turnmills, London and The Bizness in Blackpool. He’s worked in TV and radio (mostly making cups of tea, we reckon, but he says otherwise).

You won’t have seen him on many big event flyers, as he’s undertaken more intimate affairs such as yacht parties, corporate raves, mansion parties, and fashion shows than you can count.

He’s also a remixer and producer, as well as a ghost remixer for a few projects, and has a respected opinion on what’s good, bad or missing in a track. He’s well known for having no filter between brain and mouth, and he says what he thinks frequently.

Jay is also one of the owners of BigAV, which produces music videos, multi-camera live concerts, live streams, and A/V services for club nights. His other skills include lighting design and operation, visuals, sound system engineering, and event management.

He’s quite camera shy, constantly insists he has a face for radio, and often takes a back seat, putting everyone else way before him when it comes to promotion.

His DJ and music influences are Roger Sanchez, James Zabiela, Purple Disco Machine, Defected Records, and Toolroom.

In 2017, after being a vinylist for the majority of his life he took the digital plunge, moved wholesale to CDJs, and conquered four-deck mixing and live editing.

He’s a huge fan of Drum & Bass/Jungle and early hardcore (before it got all giddy and, er, “commercial”)

Jay runs two regular biweekly radio shows: Something for the Weekend. An upbeat, music to get ready to go out to type show—big pianos, huge vocals, etc.—and Journey’s Through House—for the more serious, discerning listener in a more structured house/tech-house/funk span of genres.

He is also currently a resident for Free2Dance events and says he always has room in his diary for “just one more booking.”.
