Martin Jay

Martin Jay
Martin “BIG PAPPY” Jay was born in West London November 1970 to a mother born in St Lucia, a Dominican father and Grenadian grandfather giving proof to the fact that he is definitely a product of the Caribbean.

MJ’s love for DJing started when he was about 13 years old. Together with his cousin Ian he began buying records and by the time he was 16 he had a more than decent collection of Lovers Rock, Rare Groove and Soul. Just before his 18th birthday MJ’s radio career took off on a local station called Pioneer, he then moved on to WLR which is where he broadcasted for the majority of 1989. It was at WLR that Krazy MD (MJ’s former name) was asked to cover a Soca music programme for his now long time friend SMOKEY JOE and this is where his interest for Soca started to ignite into the massive flame that it is today.

Martin Jay – The Prince of Soca came alive on Sunday 30th September 1990 @ 8pm when he broadcasted his first ever Caribbean Affair show on Choice FM and to this date almost two decades later he is still on Choice FM bringing happiness to thousands of listeners every Sunday evening.

MJ’s love for the Caribbean is second to none and he believes that this has contributed greatly to the amazing career that he has had as one of Europe’s finest soca DJ’s both on air and in the parties too. One of things that MJ enjoys the most is covering Carnivals and Festivals in the Caribbean and he has been lucky enough to broadcast his show live from St Lucia, Barbados and Trinidad on several occasions and he has also had the chance to experience Grenada, St Kitts, St Vincent, Dominica, The Bahamas and Jamaica. The places that he hasn’t visited are just a matter of time!
