Last updated 4 June, 2019


From his first love of hardcore (the “old school rave” scene, not the guitar “hardcore”), Jay Cunning has been involved neck-deep in all things breakbeat in the UK. The breakbeat scene was a phenomenon in itself, and to those who didn’t witness it first-hand, Jay’s stories will in themselves be fascinating.

But this podcast is more than that: Jay talks about how scenes rise and fall, and why; he shares stories of life in radio, both legal and decidedly illegal; and talks about DJing when you’ve got a full-time job.

We cover making DJing work with a partner and family, clubs vs radio, running a DJ school, and many other things Jay’s done and learned in his long career. It’s all in another absorbing episode of Tales from the Dancefloor.
