PREMIERE | Christian Martin Shares Grimey House Remix Of Fellow Dirtybird Member Justin Jay’s “Drive”

Almost a full year ago, Justin Jay released his debut album, Home, via his very own Fantastic Voyage record label. Although Justin Jay felt that it was appropriate start heading in his own unique direction, he is still a very much revered and beloved member of the Dirtybird clan. That’s why when he decided to drop a remix album of Home (which drops tomorrow), he tapped multiple Dirtybird producers to put their own spin on his tracks.

Among those producers is founding member Christian Martin (older brother of Justin Martin), who was given the opportunity to remix “Drive,” perhaps one of the most dancey tracks on the album. “Drive” originally featured an acid synth lead that rose and sunk throughout the track while a bassy kick drum pounded hard, approaching levels of energy that are normally found in techno.

Christian Martin makes amazing use of the acid influences as well as Justin Jay’s distorted vocals to create a filthy little breakbeat number that will light up any dancefloor. Listen for yourself below and enjoy!

Justin Jay Drops Incredible House Remix Of Walker & Royce’s Infectious “Take Me To Your Leader”

Justin Jay is simply the king of vibes. Walker & Royce’s track “Take Me To Your Leader” out via Dirtybird was an impossibly infectious track that lit up the summer last year, yet Justin Jay managed to find a way to invoke even more positive expression out of the tune. His remix of “Take Me To Your Leader” just dropped, and at the perfect time. This beautiful piece of music will help you squeeze the last drops out of summer.

Like most things Justin Jay does, this remix is incredibly unique. The first part of the track is nearly its own piece of music, entirely separate from the original (besides some vocals). As it progresses, more elements of the original begin to emerge until the unmistakable melody is brought in during the breakdown. The remix takes off from there, with Justin Jay’s work and the Walker & Royce elements playing around with each other until the end. It works so well that we could loop this thing for the rest of the day and be entirely content.

This “Take Me To Your Leader” remix was released as part of a remix album for Walker & Royce’s Self Help LP (one of our favorite electronic albums last year), which featured other familiar Dirtybird artists like Justin Martin, Ardalan, J. Phlip, and more. The whole EP is definitely worth listening to, but this is the clear the stand out.

Justin Jay Returns To Dirtybird Records With Funky New House Single “Cash Money”

Justin Jay burst out onto the scene back in 2011 by being the youngest artist to put out music on Dirtybird Records (who were starting to gain some serious traction back then). After many years of solid releases with the Dirtybird gang, Justin Jay ventured off to try something a little bit different. Just last year he launched his unique live band and record label, Fantastic Voyage, and subsequently dropped his stellar debut album, Home.

After much growth, Justin Jay returns to Dirtybird with a brand new single, "Cash Money". Justin Jay has always been one of the funkiest members of Dirtybird, through his music and his style, and that same distinguishable aesthetic can be heard here on his new release. "Cash Money" features the signature sounds of Dirtybird: addictive vocal cuts, eccentric synths, all on top of a seriously fat bass line.

In light of this big release, Justin Jay will be embarking on an 18 date tour across the U.S., bouncing from coast to coast until the final stop at Modesto, California for Dirtybird Campout.

Stream “Cash Money” below, and check out the full list of tour dates as well. Follow this link for more info on the tour. Enjoy!
