Jay West is one of the most important underground house names ever to come
out of Southamerica. This established dj and producer has been touring the globe and playing the most important clubs and festivals for the last few years with no sign of stopping.

With releases on the most notorious labels, like Inland Knight’s Drop

It could be said that almost every underground house mix around contains one of his works!

His dj sets, always fun, original and full of funk, have made thousands
of people dance in some of the most important venues in the globe. He has been part of Miami’s Winter Music Conference in the last 6 editions, Creamfields Buenos Aires (One of the biggest festivals in the world, gathering 60.000 people), Southamerican Music Conference (where he worked as a panelist directing production workshops and seminars), Personal Fest or Marlboro Mxtronica.

Born in Rosario, Argentina; ever since his childhood he developed a huge
passion for the art of sounds, and later, in his teenage years, he formed and leaded several rock bands as a composer, singer, guitar, key player and front man. His love for the creation of rhythm and melodies grew in time, and he began learning and falling in love with funk and disco from the past era. Obsessive collector of Lp´s and always open to new sources of inspiration he discovered House Music and immediately started making beats.

The memories of poolside afterhours in his hometown with hundreds of people
dancing to the beats of funk until the sun came out won´t ever leave his mind.

His tracks have been featured in various famous compilations such as Mark
Farina’s Live In Tokyo OM, BBC essential mix, Johnny Fiasco’s Winter sessions, Roger Sanchez’s Release Yourself radio show or Journey by Dj’s. He has remixed Inland Knights, Jacob London, Magik Johnson, Pound Boys, The Rurals, Troydon, Can Costa amongst a lot of others and been remixed by huge talents like Greenskeepers, Johnny Fiasco, Schmoov, Harold Heath, Hipp-e, Random Soul, Toka Project, Patrick Turner or Morgan Page.

During the last few years and looking to expand and contribute to the house
music world, Jay started Flavor Recordings joining UK’s talented Matt Shrewd. Flavor has grown to be synonymous of funky underground house and has featured some of the most important artists of the scene today like Kinky Movement, The Littlemen, Inland Knights or Da Sunlounge.

He also started his own solo imprint in 2008, Candy Music which features
disco-infused, deep, tech and always groovy beats oriented to move dancefloors all over the globe. Candy’s roster also includes great talent like Tovar, Da Sunlounge, Jesus Gonsev, Neighbour, Random Soul, Kirby, Deep Mariano, Christian Malloni or Manuel Sahagun.

Jay West is only one of the names this Argentinian born self-tought musician
uses, in 2007 one of his collaboration projects (with long time friend and fellow Argentinian Christian Malloni) exploded and gained world respect after a strike of releases in labels like Agave, Alphabet, Shrewd Music, Pilot, Peng and Flavor. The Candy Dealers quickly became a household name in the underground house scene. He has also done work under monikers like Pushing Boundaries (with Matt Shrewd), Western Union, Shanty Town or The Golosines….

Always defying himself to improve and with a heavy schedule of gigs and
releases, every year is a new challenge for Jay, with lots of new projects and trying to break more boundaries. You better be there to enjoy it!!
