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!
