June 23, 2017
At 23, Justin Jay is one of the youngest and grooviest Dirtybird players. His innovative mind and style have put him amongst some of the best in the industry. Justin’s sound mixes his soul, funk, and jazz roots in a nostalgic, yet forward-thinking manner that yields his unmistakable brand of house music. Last year Justin Jay launched a side project, Justin Jay & Friends (Josh Taylor and Benny Bridges), which he then turned into a label that shares its name with their debut album, Fantastic Voyage.
This week’s RB Deep in the Mix, Justin Jays’s ‘Fantastic Voyage House Party Mix’ represents the Fantastic Voyage vibe perfectly.
The Fantastic Manifesto is simple: “As we set forth on this fantastic voyage, we seek simple yet significant pleasures: friendship, fun, freedom. We believe in inclusion, not exclusion. We’re here for amusement, not status. Expression over perfection. No one can embark on a fantastic voyage alone, so come join us and make it your own. Here, we are all captains.” This mix exemplifies everything The Fantastic Voyage stands for. There’s plenty of friendship, a whole lot of fun, and you can’t help but feel free while you listen to his lighthearted, spirited tunes. Old school disco, industrial-inspired house, upbeat swing take us on a journey in this hour-long party mix perfect for any and everywhere this weekend. Check out the tracklist below:
