Biography

Jay Tripwire Bio
In the late 80s and early 90s Jay Tripwire was heavily influenced by the deep futuristic sounds coming from Detroit, the classic house sound from NYC and the early raw freshness of the Chicago sound that it became a fusion Jay would be known for.
Living isolated in Vancouver Canada gave the Vancouver djs their own sound and style of Djing, alongside his peers such as Tyler “Tbone” Stadius, Dj Ali and Vernon, Jay had honed his craft in the underground scene, playing numerous warehouse parties, clubs, afterhours and making mixtapes.

Not content to just Dj Jay attended a sound engineering school where he took courses in sound engineering and music theory and began building his own studio. later named “Teletran 1”.
during the 90s Jay was Djing 3-5 nights a week, he was also the house buyer for one of the local record stores and spent his spare time in the studio getting himself familiar with producing house tracks ,little did he know he would be getting the necessary expertise as a well respected local Dj to propel him to the next level of his career.
10 years ago Jay released his 1st record marking the beginning of what has gone on to be over 100 ‘12 inch singles selling more than 250 000 vinyl units total.
Jays discography and list of venues played list is long and hard to keep up with, which go hand in hand with the grueling schedule Jay keeps in the studio and on the road.
Jay has returned to his roots of that unique fusion of Detroit ,NYC and Chicago and gives credit to being inspired by this sound again while living in LA and hearing one of his mentors, the legendary Doc Martin play a 7+ hour set at one of Docs legendary Sublevel warehouse parties.

    Tripwire truly sees how to put together the perfect flowing, perfect sounding, electronic deep house track without adding anything unnecessary in it. Uses the perfect background noises while having something else that one can follow with interest as well as amazement. Truly fukin epic.

    Just discovered the previous one, Gemini Soul. Which reminds me a lot of Aril Brikha. New favourite producer, so.
