One of our favorite dirtybirds, Justin Jay, is currently finishing his last semester at University of Southern California, but that isn’t stopping him from releasing outstanding productions. His latest effort is a brooding remix of Disciples’ hit record, “They Don’t Know,” that takes a dive into the shadowy realms of deep house that were never fully explored by this gifted 22-year-old. With this remix release on February 22nd via Pete Tong’s FFRR imprint on top of a forthcoming EP on Catz ‘n Dogz’ Pets Recordings, major upcoming gigs like Holy Ship!, and more, Justin Jay is prepping for an enviable last semester and a massive 2015.
