dirtybird wunderkind Justin Jay recently finished college, and to celebrate, he’s released his Mom, I Graduated EP, which includes the funky and tribal-feeling tech house thumper Rain Dance.
We’ve already heard EP track Hit It, which errs in the direction of being a more pounding groove with drums and dark, major key piano chords at the forefront. Rain Dance’s vocal sample of “I’m gonna make it rain” is similarly dark, but the xylophone-led melody allows for a bit more of a fanciful feel with the melody interacting with the bassline. If looking to hear these tracks live, Jay’s in the midst of a 30-plus city worldwide festival and club tour. Tickets are available for remaining dates here.
