Bristol based DJ and producer Jaydrop (aka Jay Jennings) originally started out DJing and making Dubstep. His early productions quickly caught the attention of Grime / Dubstep pioneer and long time Blast favourite DJ Plastician who featured them on his Rinse FM show. Soon after this followed the release of seminal label Tempa’s “Dubstep Allstars 10” compilation which also featured 2 Jay’s tracks.
In 2014 as Jaydrop began to speed up his production tempo to 170, he saw his first EP release on Swiss label Demand Records. Further releases that year came on Alchemic Breaks as well as Skutta Records alongside Mystic State. These tracks soon gained support from the likes of Skeptical, Loxy, Icicle, Eastcolours, Youngsta, Om Unit, and most recently Doc Scott who signed Jay’s “True Sound” release to his legendary label 31 Recordings in late 2015.
Jaydrop joined The Blast as our newest resident just over a year ago and almost immediately proved himself to be an invaluable member of the team. In the last 12 months alone he has shared the stage with the likes of Shy FX, Andy C, Goldie, David Rodigan, Congo Natty, Loefah, and many more.
