Gray, born in Slovenia in 1979, showed 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 new world to him and led him to become a professional DJ. While performing all over Slovenia he developed a distinctive style and personal technique which, in 2002, provided a ticket to international performances in Macedonia, Belgium, Spain and Germany.
Being more than just a “spinner”, Gray recognized a love for music production and succeeded in getting his work published for the first time on a Finnish label Fak Records compilation EP, followed by his first single EP released by Force Inc. Music Works, from Germany, in 2002. He then introduced a techno sound with something different, resulting in a cover of a traditional Serbian/Macedonian folksong, “Ajde Jano”, where the lyrics were interpreted by Celtic singer Talitha MacKenzie (USA/Scotland). The song was released by Invasion records, from Belgium, owned and run by DJ & producer Zzino. “Ajde Jano” was also remixed by several other producers, including Adam Jay, Flash Golden and Björn Bommersheim.
As his music evolved beyond techno and his electronic sound skills matured, he started to incorporate electro and house sound into his work, efforts which were praised by Billy Nasty. The first EP resulting from this style, called “Eletronuet”, was released in early 2005, published by XL Recordings sub label Platinum Projects (UK), under his real name, Jernej Graj. Simultaneously, his has released records in various genres on Highland Beats Technology Music Works, Yin Yang, Evolved Records, *Cutz, Evopro Recordings, Advanced, Kazoo Records, Techment Records, Sucasa and his own techno label called Audionautica and its house sub-label Audionautica House Recordings.
