About DJ Ricky Jay

Born and raised in the suburbs outside of The City of Angels, Los Angeles based DJ, Ricky Jay is anything but small town. At a young age, Ricky Jay gained much of his musical influences through his father, a seasoned product developer in the professional audio industry for notable companies such as JBL, Harman, and Marantz. Ricky Jay’s DJ career began during the vinyl era of the late 90s where he discovered his love for the art of scratching and turntablism. Much of Ricky Jay’s mixing style is attributed to the influence of fellow Los Angeles DJs and idols, P-Trix, Z-trip, and Mr.Choc. An open format DJ, Ricky Jay plays a wide variety of music that he skillfully tailors to all of his crowds on any given night. “It’s not what you play, its how you play it,” says Ricky Jay. As a winner of several DJ battles, Ricky Jay uses his vast knowledge of mixing techniques to add a unique funk and flare to his performances that sets him apart from today’s amateurs. “Programming is key,” he says, which is why Ricky Jay is always in-tune with his crowd and able to customize his mixing accordingly to suit anyone and everyone. With over a decade of experience under his belt, Ricky Jay has played all over Southern California covering venues from San Diego to Santa Barbara. Prior to his International debut in Canada in 2010, Ricky Jay has also held a yearlong residency on the famous strip of Las Vegas at the exclusive Foundation Room and legendary Rum Jungle. Besides the nightlife, Ricky Jay has performed live on stage with bands and artists such as Incubus, Warren G, Too Short, The Game, and more. In addition to nightclubs and concerts, you can find Ricky Jay providing live sounds for popular retail stores such as Nordstrom, Guess, Metropark, and the famous Primitive Shoes in Encino, California where he is backed and supported by it’s owner and professional skateboarder, Paul Rodriguez. Currently, Ricky Jay is constantly practicing in the studio and working with many DJs such as DJ Kilmore of Incubus. Whether it is a new scratch, mix, or track, Ricky Jay is always keeping his music and skills fresh. His ongoing projects include Dropping Needles, an “up-tempo sneak peak to music” Podcast in which he partners with close friend DJ Bling of Los Angeles. With over 10 mixes since the start of 2012 and going strong, Dropping Needles has featured popular guests such as Mistermike, Quix, and Panic City, with many more to come.
