San Francisco-based Jay Ell has been sharing his organic blend of deep house, techno and progressive sounds for many moons.

Jay Ell rose in popularity during Los Angeles’ burgeoning dance music scene of the early 2000s, playing regularly at renowned clubs such as Spundae, Liquified, Avalon, Giant, and others—opening for and performing alongside world-class DJs including John Digweed, Hector Romero, Anthony Pappa, Taylor, and other mainstays of dance music, along with many, many talented locals.

A proponent of the DJ as a storyteller, Jay Ell’s sets are thoughtful, intelligently programmed, and bring a sexy, mature element to dance music.
