Since the early 90’s Owen Jay has been one of the main contributors to the development of underground music culture in Malta; as a DJ, producer, event promoter & label owner. His early attraction to electronic music led him to early Detroit sounds of UR, Metroplex & Peacefrog Records, inevidently his dj sets feature a combination of Detroit, NY & Chicago tracks. His production releases together with Melchior Sultana are a fusion of such influences embedded in a Mediterranean warm feel. During the last decade Owen Jay’s sound has gradually evolved, however, it is the alternative and distinct sound which set him apart from the mainstream earning himself gigs at numerous renowned clubs. Owen Jay is currently hosting a bi-monthly Live Webcast on Mondays at 16.00GMT on www.myhouse-yourhouse.net.
