As die-hard Dirtybird fans, we have had the pleasure of watching Justin Jay grow-up within he past few years from the prodigal producing teen to one of the coolest young DJs to catch in LA.
It feels like just last week the lanky teen was putting out “Femme Fatale” on the (now) world-known house label, Dirtybird. Favoring the label’s crew as a baby high schooler, Jay was barely legal when he put out his first track with DB, making his premier tracks in his dorm room Freshman year. That’s all it took and since then, his audience has been on the edge of their computer seat eagerly waiting for what he releases next.
So, where is Justin Jay today? What does an artist who fulfilled every aspiring house DJ’s dream before he could buy beer do with his time now? Our man is continuing to grow as an artist, expanding his skill-set, and collaborating with his friends in his newest gig, “Justin Jay & Friends.” Funky, danceable, indie rock kissed by something electric, the new project features Jay on the keys and a full-on band that completely embodies cool California vibes.
Despite our influx of mainly electronically focused tracks, we find live music extremely important, influential, and pertinent. We need more artists like Justin Jay- artists that are not afraid to prove their musical talents past the decks.
So, music lovers, “Are you with the band?”
