Jernej Graj aka Gray, born in Slovenia in 1979, shoved his predisposition for music even when he was a child. By the time he was seven, he was playing guitar and drums while attending Music School. Finally, he discovered electronic music, which remains one of the greatest passions in his life. His first DJing experience in 1999 opened a whole new world to him and eventually led him to become a professional DJ persona. While performing all over Slovenia he developed a distinctive style and unique personal techniques, which in 2002 provided a ticket to first international performances. So far he performed in Macedonia, Belgium, Spain, Germany...
Being more than just a “spinner”, Gray quickly recognized his love for music production. He soon succeeded in getting his work published for the first time by Finnish label Fak Records on a Various Artist EP, soon to be followed by his first single EP, released by the highly respected label, the one and only, [l=Force Inc. Music Works] from Germany in 2002. These achievements are but a proof of genuine enthusiasm for music production and his hard work. It became his growing desire to introduce techno sound with something new and completely different resulting in a cover of a traditional Serbian/Macedonian folksong “Ajde Jano”, where lyrics were interpreted by Celtic singer Talitha MacKenzie (USA/Scotland). The song was released by [l=Invasion] records from Belgium, an excellent brand owned and run by the legendary DJ & producer [a=Zzino]. “Ajde Jano” also lived to be remixed by several younger producers, such as [a=Adam Jay], [a=Flash Golden] and [a=Björn Bommersheim].
As his music evolved above techno and his electronic sound skills matured, he started to incorporate electro and house sound into his work. His efforts were immediately complimented and praised by [a=Billy Nasty]. The first EP resulting from this spectre called “Eletronuet” was released in early 2005, published by the promising XL Recordings sub label [l=Platinum Projects] (UK) under his real name [a=Jernej Graj]. Simultaneously, his professional success continues with more releases in various genres on labels: [l=Highland Beats Technology Music Works], [l=Yin Yang], [l=Evolved Records], [l=*Cutz], [l=Evopro Recordings], [l=Advanced], [l=Kazoo Records], [l=Techment Records], [l=Sucasa] and his own techno label called [l=Audionautica] and house sub-label [l=Audionautica House Recordings].
His tracks were remixed by artists: [a=Pedro Delgardo], [a=2 Robots (3)], [a=Elton D], [a=Miche & Mirzinho], [a=Section One], [a=Allan Banford], [a=Greg Kobe], [a=DJ Psm] , [a=K-Soul (3)], [a=Max Cooper], [a=Adam Jay], [a=Flash Golden], [a=Digital Soul (6)], [a=Reflex (13)] and more, while one of his tracks was currently futured on new mixed CD from techno pioneer, inventor of remixing - [a=Kevin Saunderson] (May 2007) on [l=Explicit Musick] and more tracks on other compilations (Pedro Delgardo - Digital Lifestyle (Yin Yang Records), So Intense! - Volume 1 ([l=RockitWave8]) - mixed by Deekron)!
