On Thursdays, he went to the basement of Nighttown where he got acquainted with the funky technosound played there. Through friend and DJ Nick K he was introduced to DJ Michel de Hey. With a group of friends Jay accompanied Michel de Hey through his weekend bookings and this way he got inspired to become a DJ too. He started organising small parties together with a friend in order to be able to play as often as possible. One thing led to another, he was invited to play as a warm-up DJ at the Future Friday night in Nighttown, and later on he became a resident DJ for the Future Night.

Jay is now one of the residents at Michel de Hey's Future night and EC Record Label Night April this year Jay has mixed a cd for the Smirnoff residence concept. Jay Samuel had his first producing experience in the recording studio with a friend about two years ago. Stef Vrolijk invited Jay to get in the studio with him. Stef is a progressive producer and at first, it was kind of difficult to mingle the two very different styles together. Ultimately a nice track came out of it and this co-operation can be seen as a foretoken of many future co-productions. Discography Title Label Year Stef & J Samuel - Business Class EC Records 2000
