Young LA star, Justin Jay, has already caught the ears of DJs and fans worldwide and released on the likes of dirtybird and Culprit. Last year, Jay shared an EP of deep house gold on Shall Not Fade sister label Lost Palms. Now he returns on their bass-oriented sublabel Time Is Now.
Hypnotized EP is a fun, breaks heavy romp featuring rave powerhouse trio Denham Audio and a remix by jungle mainstay Tim Reaper. From the off the energy is high, the title track rolling out pitched vocals and dramatic drops. ‘I Know’ is ever more frenetic, breaks cascading over one another to a fever pitch, while Denham Audio collab ‘Swarm’ brings out 303s and dramatic sub bass wobbles for a tour-de-force of hardcore dance vibes. Rising lofi house producer Angelo Jsn gives a euphoric, breathless edge to ‘Burgundy’, an emotive space age trance number. Tim Reaper’s untameable refix of ‘Swarm’ keeps the heart racing to the end.
Hypnotize EP drops Friday 28th January, via Time Is Now.
