Jamie Roy hailing from Dumfries, Scotland first discovered house music at the age 14 after through his older brothers djing and record collection, Jamie's infatuation with dance music started then and is still prevalent today, now its an obsession!
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.”
Keeping his mind open to genres and styles his most recent production 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 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”.
Having spent 3 summers based in Ibiza Jamie’s profile status is rapidly growing. With his first residency for Ibiza Rocks at Pikes in 2015, this lead to Steve Lawler making Jamie the Viva Warriors resident for 2016 for a 22 week run at Sankeys cementing himself as one of the main stay dj’s on the island. He continued his love affair with Sankeys and that special basement in 2017 with a residency for Do Not Sleep as well as Cuckoo Land at Ibiza Rocks Hotel, a pool party that was one of the revelations of the summer, its safe to say that his name is becoming increasingly recognised by island goers alike. He rounded out the year playing for Ants Ibiza and Kaluki at The Warehouse Project Manchester and a huge NYE show in Glasgow at the Liquid Rooms with Groove Armada and Joris Voorn.
So enough with all the formalities, what you really need to know about Jamie is he loves a party, some say he loves it a bit too much but thats what makes Jamie, Jamie! He knows how to read a dance floor, what record to play and when, but most of all how to get the crowd behind him whether thats at the club or the afters! Jamie is all about the good vibes and keeping the crowds energy levels up “I don't specifically set out to play one style, you have to feel the crowd and the moment to know what to play, its all about keeping it fun! There's nothing better then building a groove up and mixing it in with a few crowd favourites along the way"
