The Vinyl Factory Radio: JAY





A vinyl-only tour, spanning from ambient and reggae to dub and beyond.

The Vinyl Factory Radio is a new audio platform on VF, dedicated to sharing and discovering records from across the world through mixes, interviews and podcasts.

Initially launched within Chicago artist Theaster Gates’ Black Image Corporation exhibition at 180 The Strand, this programming explores cross-cultural, artistic collaborations between the Chicago and the music scene in London.

JAY is a founding member of SIREN – a London based crew who launched in 2016 to create a safe and immersive space for those who are underrepresented in dance music, whilst critiquing the wider electronic scene as a whole. Throughout every avenue, they are champions of inclusivity, who seek to give a platform, and a voice, to those who may not have one otherwise.

As a producer, she’s released tracks on Intergraded and Higgler, while JAY’s DJ sets see her lay down fierce and sublime techno – of the variety that will joyously melt your face off.

For this first VF Radio foray though, she’s returning to vinyl for something different – a two-hour special, exploring sounds that diverge from those she plays in a club setting, from Midori Takada and Nico, to King Tubby, Sir Horatio and more.

This is JAY.
