Norman Jay MBE is a British DJ. He first came to prominence playing unlicensed or “warehouse” parties in the early 1980s, such as Shake ‘n’ Fingerpop. His diverse and deep musical knowledge and his refusal to be restricted to playing from any single genre distinguishes him from his peers. He is commonly attributed to coining the phrase “rare groove”.
Since 1995 Jay has released numerous mix compilations, such as Good Times, Giant 45 and most recently Skank & Boogie, released through Rob da Bank’s record label Sunday Best.
