Justin Jay & Friends have been taking over airwaves with their releases like “What Do You Want,” “Can’t Complain” and more. Their songwriting-heavy gems have been a breath of fresh air for the scene, and the group seems to have a very promising future ahead of them. Although the series of releases has consisted of songs from the group, Justin Jay now goes off on his own to create a new version of their hit “Karma” that brings a perfect afterparty vibe to the tune. The Fantastic Voyage mastermind has never taken it upon himself to remix his own song, so be sure to check out the results above.

Another week, another brand new Justin Jay tune, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Last week, the house luminary gave us “Weatherman,” along with the announcement of his debut album, Fantastic Voyage (The Album!), and this week, Justin Jay has unveiled his latest deliverance, “Can’t Complain.” Featuring Josh Taylor on vocals and Benny Bridges on guitar, “Can’t Complain” is Justin Jay & Friends at its finest – a lead-guitar-heavy melody intricately woven together with smooth vocals and a heady house backbone. Take a gander at this week’s new track from Justin Jay above and keep your fingers crossed for next week’s offering.

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.

Los Angeles-based producer, Justin Jay, releases his edit of Barnt’s “Chappell” as a gift to us to close out the year. For this release, Justin brings on Henry Was for drumming duties to add to Benny Bridges on guitar. The crew puts their own touch on “Chappell,” with live instruments, driving percussive additions, and subtle production tweaks, and the result exceeds expectations with its overall livening of the techno track. Justin Jay has been changing the game with his innovative stylistic choices, and he’s expected to continue in 2016.

“With Benny Bridges on guitar, I saw this techno anthem by Barnt as a way to start messing around with Henry’s crazy drum sounds. We had so much fun making it and even more fun playing it live. With it being the holiday season, we wanted to give it to you guys (especially DJ’s who need an extra jam for those holiday sets).” – Justin Jay
