In celebratory post-grad fashion, USC student and dirtybird producer Justin Jay (pictured) shares details for his Mom, I Graduated EP and world tour, releasing the EP’s first number called Hit It.

The tech-heavy A-side track follows a dense bassline that meanders through light percussion, vocoded vocal snippets, and a few powerful piano chords to give the track a dynamic extra layer. It carries all the infectious bass-driven nature synonymous with the dirtybird brand for what will undoubtedly become a dance floor staple on his upcoming tour.

Jay also reveals in a press release that he flexed his production flare to bring in different elements on this EP.

“I spent most of my last semester of college pushing myself outside of my comfort zone musically. I started making music with my friends, Josh and Ben, who respectively sing and play guitar. Writing lyrics for choruses and verses, recording vocals and guitar, and producing beats around it all was a crazy, challenging experience for me.”

Mom, I Graduated is not due out until Sept. 14, but you can hear a preview of the EP’s second track, Rain Dance, above, and check out his tour dates below.
