E-KAY is a DJ / Producer based in Hackney in East London. His exposure to music came at an early age listening to the radio and playing percussion. The first contact with parties and DJ’ing came when he was asked by his associate to help select the music for the party he was playing at. The musical education continued throughout his teens listening to disco, pop, reggae, dub, world music, rock, dance and drum and bass. Eventually house music was to dominate all other genres.
Picking up a pair of second hand belt drive turntables and started practising to mix, after a while and with a group of friends, he formed the deep jam collective and started gigging in bars and small clubs in London.
Since then he has joined S-dance radio station giving him the opportunity to play regularly and to further develop his style. The move to production came as a natural progression for E-KAY. His first single ‘Roots’ came out in January 2016 soon to be followed by ‘We Dance’, both released on the suiss label MusicXplosion while his debut single for 247House ‘Fire on the floor’ came out in June 2016. There current lies a new project in the pipeline ‘Dance to the death’ and it’s due to be released in later this year.
