Following a long background in music from drumming in high school bands to working in music PR and several years working at UK online music store Juno, Jay Shepheard first arrived on the scene last year with the release of his debut EP "Black Label 19" on Compost.
With the help of strong DJ support the EP gave Jay good profile straight off the bat which was built upon nicely with the follow up EPs "Black Label 28" released in December 07 and "Black Label 34" in June 08. All the three of the 4 track EPs received critical acclaim from DJs, music lovers and the press alike and earned Jay a nomination for Best Deep House act of 2007 in the Beatport Mucic Awards. Aswell as his solo EPs on Compost Jay has also been busy with remixes and colaborations and is currently working with artists including Faze Action, Manuel Tur and Dplay, Roberto Rodrigues, Tj Kong, Robert Owens and labels including Diynamic, Four:Twenty, Glimpse and Juno.
Outside of the studio Jay is also building a reputation on the worlds dance floors, using a combination of DJing and Ableton Live to showcase new, unreleased and exclusive material at venues and clubs such as Fabric, The End and T Bar in London, Hive in Zurich, DIY in Hamburg and Harry Klein in Munich.
