Ollie Jaye has been around for what seems like an eternity. Music has always been a major factor in his life and developed an interest in the early electronic sounds from such luminaries as Vince Clarke, Chris Lowe, The Human League & Kraftwerk.
Fast forward and Ollie’s presence and skills have earned him a top spot in the Club culture. Along with a 10 year residence at the world famous Hippo Club in Cardiff, he’s opened up for “The Prodigy” on the Cardiff legs of their tour, played back to back for 2 hours with Sister Bliss, from Faithless fame. He’s also warmed up for just about every “name” DJ on the planet, including – Sasha, Judge Jules, David Morales, Jeremy Healy, Carl Cox and just about everyone else you can think of. And then, of course…
In 1996 Ollie gave his first tune “Eden” to Jon The Dentist who signed it up on the spot to his label “Bosca Beats“. It achieved buzz and hype chart status and sold well, so Ollie and Jon teamed up and released further tracks, each outselling the last. Then they created the now seminal “Imagination” which was immediately snapped up by Tidy Trax and it became one of their biggest selling records, shifting over 18,000 units upon release. This was followed up by the equally massive 'Feel So Good'. Ollie and Jon finished off a full length album, “Genetically Engineered“.
Having taken some time out, Ollie is back DJ'ing & has taken a bi-monthly residency at Cardiff's biggest trance night 'Journey' & taking dates around the UK and abroad again.
Ollie presents the award winning radio show Global State Transmission on Radio Cardiff, which airs every Saturday night and is available for download on his Global State Transmission Podcast as well as via iTunes! It’s quickly becoming a world hit attracting guests such as Paul van Dyk, Rowland & Wright, Lisa Lashes, Mark Knight, Judge Jules, BK, Anne Savage, Jelo & Calvertron.
Ollie has now set up a new record label - Global State Recordings which is going from strength to strength and boasts an impressive roster of both established and upcoming talent.
He has hooked up with hard dance legend Toryn D and is currently working on their new live project that's about to take the scene by storm - Lunatic Response Unit...
