Jake is quite simply a man of many talents & lover of music from around the world…

BBE LogoA member of the Summer Soulstice DJ roster in earlier days, Jake is an ardent supporter of the black stuff, co-owning the oft-overlooked Village Vinyl shop up in Walthamstow’s Wood Street Indoor Market, where @ weekends he sifts through a whole lot of beautiful jazz, funk, disco, soul, afro & Latin treats to bring to his loyal band of customers.

When he’s not running things E17 side, he’s also a bit partial to a bit of graphic design and art direction, producing artwork for a number of clients, including the influential BBE Record label & one of the UK’s best-loved independents Wah Wah 45s. As you’d expect from holding down such professions, he’s also an avid record collector having accumulated an enviable selection of killer tracks to draw upon when he oft DJs out & about in the capital.

Jake caught the DJ bug back in 1990, playing out @ his various college parties in the London Borough of Newham, before setting up a successful Brazilian night while studying @ Brighton University. It was here where he met the irrepressible DJ Dom Servini, which led to a long-standing friendship between the two & a renowned club night in the form of Mouseorgan, which ran for six years @ The Clinic & Herbal & various other venues, as well as guest stints @ Heaven & Fabric.
