FLavRjay is a resident DJ with The Energy Collective Dublin. He also hosts several radio shows: on UDMI Radio

. He is also a regular on OnlyOldSkool
's Only Drum & Bass night, playing a selection of old skool rave breakbeats, house, techno, hardcore, jungle and drum & bass.
Flavrjay had a strong passion for the early 90s UK hardcore scene and would religiously shop in the Abbey Mail Dublin buying old skool breaks or hardcore mix tapes and he has been collecting vinyl since 1995.
FLavRjay got his first opportunity at the Purple Onion in Dame Street Dublin in 1996 and went on to play at various other venues, progressing to putting on nights in Drogheda from 1999. More recently he has enjoyed spinning his tunes in The Voodoo Lounge, Wiley Fox, Fibbers and TurksHead in Dublin.
His preferred style is jungle, D&B and old skool rave/hardcore, but he often takes a trip down memory lane spinning old skool house & techno witnessed at iconic nights such as The Asylum, Sides DC, Ormond Multimedia Centre and Columbia Mills.
In 2016 he was delighted to be part of the EC DJ crew playing at Hotbox and Life Festival Ireland. Keep a look out for FLavRjay playing at the Official Outlook Party Dublin in 2017. He is dedicated to old skool vibes and is a strictly vinyl-only junkie.
