Justin Jay Announces Fantastic Voyage Album By Releasing “Weatherman”
Posted by Tay on March 23, 2016
It’s not very often that we see an album from a house and techno artist, but Justin Jay is not a typical artist. The youngest dirtybird has spent the last year pushing the boundaries of his music creatively, teaming up with his college friends to incorporate live instruments and elements of blues, jazz, soul, funk, and rock into his typical house production to create a new side project, Justin Jay & Friends. He debuted Justin Jay & Friends with the release of “Karma,” which was a resounding success, and helped pave the way for Justin’s Fantastic Voyage tour.
Now, Justin Jay is putting it all together for an album – Fantastic Voyage Part 1 – and he’s just released the first track off of his magnum opus, “Weatherman.” Featuring Benny Bridges on guitar and Josh Taylor on vocals, “Weatherman” demonstrates Justin’s matured take on production and evolved stance on house music, as Benny Bridges and Josh Taylor take the lead on the track with a heavy guitar lead and smooth vocals that are more fitting for a blues track than a house record, while Justin deftly gives “Weatherman” his signature groove. As Justin explains, the Fantastic Voyage album is a release about exploration and getting out of his comfort zone. The album will be released in a unique manner, as the 12 tracks will be split across separate EPs and released on separate labels to showcase the unique, varied sound of each individual track that are all tied together by one thing – Justin Jay.
