Jay E is best known as the multi-platinum producer behind artists Nelly and the St. Lunatics, work for which he’s earned multiple ASCAP awards and sold tens of millions of records. They say great producers make mediocre DJs and great DJs make mediocre producers, and in the pantheon of today’s music biz that statement may be true. One clear exception is Jason “DJ Jay E” Epperson, who has successfully bridged the gap between the creation and the manipulation of hit records. Jay E is now widely considered one of the world’s most innovative and popular Video DJs.
Jay has produced hit records with platinum artists and spun those hits in the same Hollywood hotspots you might find those platinum artists. And he does both well. Jay E is able to combine his musical prowess with his intense production skills to create one of the most entertaining video mixing experiences ever seen. From the classic videos you know to completely custom pieces developed in his studio, he creates an unparalleled audio/video experience. Jay E spins top 40, electro, house, rock, and hip hop all mashed up with videos projected onto screens or through the house monitors. Whether on the dance floor, in the VIP, or at the bar, all the patrons will be entertained. His talent, sound, and shine kept him in high demand from such artists as Joss Stone, Murphy Lee, and Oscar-winners 3 6 Mafia.
When not rocking crowds from behind turntables, he is rocking artists from behind the recording console. Obviously, the term “jack of all trades, master of none” has no relevance here. While in demand by the hottest clubs in the country, Jay E continues to entertain the crowds. Perhaps the reason Jay E has been successful both in the realms of producing and DJing is that he lets them scratch each others backs, allowing his production to be influenced by what works in the club and letting his DJing reflect the creativity he emits in the studio. Whatever the case, it’s WERKing for him!
