A month ago I was browsing Soundcloud as I normally do, and I was looking for a proper liveset, and found one. A rather long one, and the person who performed was Justin Jay. In all honesty, I have never heard of this man before, but by judging the amount of Facebook likes he has, I’m probably the only one who didn’t knew who he was. It took me a while to listen to it fully, and a recent trip back from the UK made it possible for me to listen to it constantly. The journey from Calais to where I live is around 3 1/2 hours and this mix 2 1/2 hours, so I had plenty of time to listen and enjoy. And I enjoyed myself, the journey was much more pleasant.
When I pressed play for the first time, I wasn’t ready for this amount of House-ness. Fully unaware of the artist and where it was recorded, but after some browsing I found out who the artist is, and the vent he played at. Let’s talk about the artist, if you were like me, unaware of him. His name is Justin Jay, and according to the internet he’s an DJ and producer from Los Angeles, California. His Facebook page info section is quite short, but the most important thing for you all to know is that his influences are Daft Punk, Claude VonStroke and Rachmaninoff. The first two I’m familiar with, the last one I’m not. But the first two count, eh?
The event he played at is called ‘Desert Hearts’. 4.6k people went to it, and it lasted 3 days. The event presented hours of House, Techno & Love. Justin Jay was one of the headline acts, and he delivered a truly amazing set, which you can download right now. If you love House this is a must have set. A wide range of styles are played, from Electro House to Funky House to Deep House. Let me warn you, this liveset will blow your mind away, and will leave you breathless.

If you have to make a journey very soon, and it’s not 2 1/2 hours long, just drive a long way away and then come back. You must listen to this mix whilst driving, the ultimate driving mix! Or, if you don’t have a car, you can listen to it at home or wherever you are.
This mix blew me away! Seriously insane mix! It’s just too damn perfect! I fell in love from the first time I heard it, and now I’ve finally listened to it continuously, it has become my favourite House liveset of all time! Look at the amount of awesome tunes! This man knows House, and his passion for it is contagious! I couldn’t stop wiggling and wobbling around in my car during my journey. And secretly I still do it.
There are too many great anthems to mention, or to pick as favourite. The ones that really blew me away were the following: ‘Diamonds’, ‘Make A Cake’, ‘Karma’, ‘Equinox’, ‘Revolution 909’, ‘Brother Piña’, …. and the list goes on! So many great tunes did Justin Jay play, the crowd went mental (you can hear it throughout the set). And they aren’t the only ones, I’ve gone completely ballistic. I never heard of Justin Jay, but he’s gained another Facebook fan! What an excellent set, pure House from the first to the last second. No mucking about, pure music.
Justin Jay, you are a superstar! Already a House legend! Brilliant set.
