What started as friends with varying musical preferences turned into the next, and possibly biggest, move of Justin Jay’s career. Justin joined forces with guitarist, Benny Bridges, and vocalist, Josh Taylor, for their introductory track, “Karma”, under the Justin Jay & Friends moniker. Justin and Benny got together again for an edit of Barnt’s “Chappell,” but they also recruited the drummer, Henry Was, to come along for the ride. Justin & co give the track a breath of fresh air with added percussive elements, live instrumentation, and Justin’s subtle and innovative production carries “Chappell” to the next level. Justin’s made the tune available as a free download, so there’s no reason not to have this monster edit in your library.
“With Benny Bridges on guitar, I saw this techno anthem by Barnt as a way to start messing around with Henry’s crazy drum sounds. We had so much fun making it and even more fun playing it live. With it being the holiday season, we wanted to give it to you guys (especially DJ’s who need an extra jam for those holiday sets).” – Justin Jay
