Jay Lumen

Tech House Techno Electronica / Downtempo

Music has been a part of Jay’s life since his childhood years. He studied music at a music conservatory for eight years, which provided a good basis to his ambition of making music.

This ambition appeared very early during his schooldays, when he started to adapt compositions of classic authors to his own style rather than playing their original versions. Although his music education was originally focused on playing a classic instrument - violin - he early recognized that his overpowering desire for creative freedom would not have been easily understood with this kind of instrument. By the time he got his first computer, he had already begun crafting ideas that he knew he would want to be heard. He taught himself to play the synthesizer and as he started obtaining the latest technologies and softwares at the time, he was finally equipped to fully develop himself artistically in a way as to be able to find that perfect sound that made him feel more like “at home”.

Nowadays, Jay Lumen is one of the most advanced new generation DJ/producers. As a producer he has had eleven No1, twenty-seven Top10, and several Top20 charted tunes so far. His releases are published by some of the most prominent international labels like Drumcode (Adam Beyer’s label), Saved (Nic Fanciulli’s label), OFF Recordings, 100% Pure, Octopus Records, Relief (Green Velvet's label) or Cadenza (Luciano's label), etc. He was the only DJ/Producer in 2010 and 2011 who had 6 tunes (originals and remixes) on the Beatport's top chart at the same time and he did it again in 2013, 2014 and already 2015 as well.

From 2012 until now all his new original releases have succeeded to the Top10 charts of Beatport! He is unique by this record all around the world and it seems he is well on his way to continue this trend in 2015 as well!
