Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

Sir Norman Jay



An extended set by Norman Jay M.B.E. (Good Times Sound System, U.K.), recorded Sept. 3, 2005 at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center for its summer Warm Up music series. Norman Jay is one of the most respected deejays in the world. Many important contemporary DJs cite him as an early influence. As a DJ his style encompasses many forms of black music including soul, funk, disco, hip-hop and garage. He is also an innovator and early adopter: Jay was listening to Chicago house records and staging warehouse parties three years before the UK's acid house explosion of 1988. On June 15, 2002 he was officially cited in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Birthday Honours List with the recommendation that he be appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire--an M.B.E.--awarded on merit for "deejaying and services to music." We have posted this show in three parts.
