Teva, aka classically trained producer, DJ and studio engineer Jay Gilbert is a name synonymous with the new wave of hot young UK DJ/Producers. With Teva Jay will focus on his musical roots and his mastery of the piano, creating a more live and organic sound with both his productions and his live shows.

From an early age Jay was classically trained on the piano and a perfectly pitched ear allowed him the ability to replay anything he listened to on TV and radio. This gift was then taken and adapted to electronic music during his mid teens due to an intense interest in seminal acts such as Faithless, Massive Attack and Groove Armada.

During College Jay got to grips with production, learning to use a fully functioning analogue studio and experimenting with the likes of Logic and modern digital production equipment. This experience and knowledge was elevated by a 3year degree in music production and engineering, which Jay excelled in. During this time he began DJing heavily across the UK and has now become an ALiVE Recordings resident, playing at the label showcases across London and the South Coast.Aside from this his DJ schedule continues to grow, with bookings coming in for London’s finest after party - Jaded and Culture Box parties in Denmark. Currently enjoying success with a string of releases on burgeoning south coast label ALiVE Recordings and Berlin based label OFF Recordings, Jay has been credited with support from the likes of Sasha, Simon Baker, Burnski, Tom Budden, Steve Lawler, Solomun, Reboot, Mihai Popoviciu, Andre Crom, and DJ W!ld.

Jay has also scored a massive success with a number one DMC Buzz Chart placing of his killer remix of Groove Armadaʼs ʻI Wonʼt Kneelʼ, a partnership with his child hood heroes that looks set to continue in the near future.

Overall Jay is a very passionate musician, a highly skilled, well respected producer and engineer, a successful and talented DJ and above all a very driven and motivated young star of the scene.
