The Story


When Jerry could barely walk he started using anything he could get his hands on a Playing In Holland
s a music instrument. The only thing that was important to him as a child was "BEAT".
He used to play drums on cans and played on his father's keyboard.
But it all really started when his parents sent him to the music school on his 17th.
From then on music was always his first priority.
The radio was also a great inspiration to him and radio DJ’s
such as Rick Grunberg really inspired him; that’s when Jerry was sure:
“I Will Be A DJ”.

Music is one of DJ Jerry Jay's daily tasks.
Besides working as Prime DJ in Dancepub Millenium, he also works in his music studio.
His interest in music has developed through the years which resulted in his diversity as a DJ.
This also causes him not to have a favorite music style, which is also apparent in his style of disc-jockeying music.
“As long as the song sounds good, it will be on my list."
DJ Jerry Jay: "I am an all-rounder and play various types of music..."

The Future

Jerry Jay has a lot of plans for the future. The Future
In 2006 he took part in a course to become a movie director at the Suriname Film Academy and has created 1 student film, which was featured in the Backlot Film Festival, and 2 CLIPS/Music videos/Short Movies concerning the 170th anniversary of Thalia.
Furthermore he wants to have a remaining impact on the music industry in Suriname.
"I want to set up a good recording studio where Surinamese artists have the chance to further develop themselves. It happens a lot that artists dive into the studio, but there's a lack of guidance for them. It often seems that the owners of such studios are only in it for the money. Everything is fine as long as the artist pays the prerecording costs. This has to change", the ambitious artist explains.
We need to keep such a dynamic career in mind.
Will be continued in five years...
