Jamie Roy first discovered house music at the age 14 after his brother played him records from both Green Velvet & DJ Sneak. Green Velvets heavy use of eclectic vocals along with DJ Sneaks badass groove were enough to get him hooked. The years that followed allowed Jamie to gain enough exposure to both channel & nurture his drive into furthering what would ultimately be his chosen career path. One of the real standout experiences that saw Jamie decide on his choice to further this path as a DJ was Daft Punks Alive tour at Rockiness… “My passion for music definitely comes from experiencing nights with friends and and seeing how we still talk about certain events to this day, that moment was one of them.”
The production journey began 4 years ago. Keeping his mind open to genres and styles his most recent work has seen him produce music that has been recognised by some of todays heavy weights. Solomun, Sasha, Nic Fancuilli, Doorly & Amine Edge to name a few. Denny’s remix of Jamie’s track – Whats Your Name that dropped in August 2013 reached the Beatport top 100 which later led to a 4 track EP release on the up and coming imprint – Under No Illusion Records. Fast forward a couple of years and… “My first gig was with my friends uber from Carlisle. We played alongside Danny Rampling which was a great experience. This later inspired me to start up my own night which later got named – Funktion. Our first guest was Yousef and as you can imagine we rocked the place… the night is still going to this day”.

With a residency at Ibiza Rocks Hotel, frequent gigs at Pikes Hotel for the invite only Idris Elba shows, Sankeys Ibiza and the San Antonio event Departure frequently being logged in the diary its safe to say that his name is becoming increasingly recognised by island goers alike.
