Brian Jay

One of the brains behind the long running Essence Of Soul nights in north west London, Brian Jay is genuinely one of the scene’s Mr Nice Guy’s…

Alongside fellow E.o.S honchos Bazza and Bva, he is a bringer of the old school to a mature crowd. Brian’s passion lies with soul, boogie, soulful house, new jack swing and anything that moves him, or better still, moves the crowd!

The quarterly Essence of Soul nights take place at the Arista Bar in Church Lane, Kingsbury (previously held at venues in Paddington and Swiss Cottage). He’s also guests at nights such as Brews & Soul (Barnet), Let The Music Play (Stevenage), the Sunny Hunny Weekender in Norfolk and was part of the DJ roster at the Ibiza Soul Week.

After broadcasting on JFSR for a number of years, and then briefly on Delite Radio, Brian now presents his Essence of Soul show every Friday from 9pm-11pm (GMT) kick starting the weekend on Starpoint Radio

Having first come to Summer Soulstice as a punter, Brian finally made his DJ debut in the Club Tent in 2017 and then followed it up a year later with a Main Stage set.
