Los Angeles native Justin Jay is back this week with another incredible single off of his forthcoming Fantastic Voyage album. The producer’s debut album has been slowly released in segments through various labels, making its rounds through Black Butter, Freerange, and Soul Clap Records. Now, the final stretch of album comes in the form of Part 4, which has made its home on Lee Foss’ Repopulate Mars label.
The album first came into fruition through Justin’s attempt to begin stepping outside his classic tech-house style. Calling upon the help of some of his college buddies, the producer created the supergroup Justin Jay & Friends, and together the collective has been able to release an exceptional collection of new tunes. Their recent single, “Climbing Trees”, off of Fantastic Voyage – Part 4 embraces the same smooth, contemplative vibe that can be found in their prior releases, but stands out with a more transcendental, brooding quality. Josh Taylor’s musing vocals carry the song, while percussion-driven beats and Benny Bridges’ deep guitar accents bring the piece into its entirety.
