Scene kingpin, underground hero and champion of Breaks & Bass riddims for well over a decade, Jay Cunning is a rare, award-winning bastion of cutting edge dance music whose influence stretches way beyond the level of your average DJ. From his residencies at Gatecrasher and Ram Records at The End to his pioneering, four-year weekly show on Kiss FM and his hugely successful labels; Sub Slayers, Sub Nation and Menu Music (alongside Terry Hooligan), Cunning has always positioned himself at the apex where dangerous drums meet searing low end.
Jay announced himself by dropping dubplates on DJ Luck’s Lush FM back in the late 90s, and quickly went on to win iDJ and Musik Magazine’s monthly mixtape competitions in the same month. He was featured in iDJ’s ‘one’s to watch’ list in 2003 and went on to lay down several guest mixes for Annie Nightingale on her Radio 1 show. Gigs in Spain, Russia, China and the USA followed, as well as at the UK’s iconic Glastonbury festival and Serbia’s famous Exit Festival, where he rocked a crowd of 20,000.
