Jay OM (Journey / Omsphere / Sonic Wave Control / The Wayfarers / Crocodile Rangers / Star~Trip) is the DJ name of, Milan born but now London based, Giampiero ‘Jay’ Mastino, label manager of Free-Spirit Records. Jay forged his earliest psychedelic-rock influences playing guitar in local bars in Milan. His romance with the decks began in the late 80’s whilst working for a local radio station where he was given the opportunity to spin his first record. This love firmly in place the move to London followed in 1998. Soon thereafter he started djing professionally as Jay OM and in 2003 he studied Sound Engineering and Music Technology and began a solo production project under the name Journey and another collaborative project called Star~Trip. In 2009 he started producing progressive under the name Omsphere, has a further psychedelic collaborative project with Ralph K (Braincell/Solar Spectrum/Rastaliens) called Crocodile Rangers. In January 2012 formed a progressive tribal trance project called Sonic Wave Control and in 2015 formed a collaborative project with Matteo Imeri aka Imry. In 2004, Jay conceived the vision of a network of like-minded artists in the psy-trance, progressive and ambient genres, all working to promote themselves and each other under one banner. Thus the Free-Spirit label was born… originally intended to focus on artist management, the label’s skyrocketing success combined with the enthusiasm of Jay, the artists and fans enabled Free-Spirit to outgrow its horizons.
