Rising 21-year-old producer Justin Jay has made a name for himself thanks to a series of stellar releases on Claude VonStroke’s dirtybird label, and now he joins fellow dirtybirds Catz n Dogz on their Pets Recordings imprint for the Momentum EP.
The EP, which was produced in Justin’s University of Southern California dorm room, is a diverse and eclectic three-track trek through various soundscapes. The opener, How I Knew, is a Gladys Knight-sampling plunge into the deep end of the pool. The title track sees JJ link up with fellow db label-mate Kill Frenzy for a dark, warehouse-ready romp through eight minutes of stripped-down techno. The final track, You Give Me Butterflies, which we previously featured here, is a bright and cheery sendoff into the sunshine.
