TBT: Global Vibe Radio 003 with Justin Jay

Justin Jay

At the tender age of 18, and as a freshman at the University of Southern California, Justin Jay released his first EP on Claude Von Stroke’s label, Dirtybird. That was several years ago, and since then the young Californian has went on to be one of the prominent rising stars within the dance industry.

Since his rise to underground stardom there’s been ample coverage on his music career and unique story as a young scholar walking the halls of USC. From sleepless nights and even rejected demos from Claude Von Stroke, Justin Jay has shown relentless grit to follow his passion and express himself so well through music.

Here at 6AM Group we’ve always been very fond of Justin Jay as an artist, obviously, but also as an overall great human being. As we look through the archives of our Global Vibe Radio series, we couldn’t help but reminisce on one of our first few episodes with Justin Jay himself.

Enjoy this thirty minute throwback mix from the young Dirtybird, and make sure to stay up to date with Justin Jay for more musical satisfaction

Preview: Justin Jay “Mom I Graduated” EP

Congratulations to Los Angeles native Justin Jay on his recent graduation from USC – no stranger to the local dance scene, he has risen to international superstar status at the young age of 22. In 2013, Pete Tong named Justin Jay up-and-coming artist of the year, and he has had major support from some of the industry’s heaviest hitters, including Justin Martin and Claude von Stroke of dirtyBird

The story of Justin Jay’s rise to success is incredibly inspiring, considering that he accomplished all of this while attending USC as a full-time student. To celebrate the graduation, he will be dropping his Mom I Graduated EP, which includes “Hit It,” a dark tech house track reminiscent of the old-school, and “Make It Rain,” a bass-heavy banger garnished with classic drum machine grooves.

Last year, he sat down with the Nest for an in-depth video interview in which the dance community got a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the life of a producer who wows us more with every release, and a DJ who creates nothing but unforgettable nights. He’s been making some serious moves in the industry, and now that he’s done with school, we can only imagine what kind of new projects he has in the works. Justin Jay’s upcoming “Mom I Graduated” EP on dirtyBird will be available in September at the following sites.

In the Nest with Justin Jay

In the nest Justin Jay

Justin Jay is quickly becoming a household name as the staple for SoCal’s Deep/Jack/Funky House frontier leading the new generation in to a throwback era. The first time we met Justin in the summer of 2012 sparked immediate attention to us that this kid is going to be the real deal as his Oct. 2012 guest mix for our Global Vibe Radio showcase proved just why he was the talent to look out for. 2 years later and a couple EP and phat releases under his belt, the Dirtybird/Culprit Artist gets the spotlight on Nest HQ. Check below for the mini-episode as he discusses the balance of attending classes while being on tour.
