Coming off of a 2015 that included his first world tour, his Mom, I Graduated! EP on Dirtybird, a new project Justin Jay & Friends, and more, Justin Jay is creating his own home with the launch of his Fantastic Voyage brand/tour that encapsulates who he is as an artist and house party-loving impresario.
Over the past year, you might have see Justin Jay performing with two of his “Friends,” vocalist Josh Taylor and guitarist Benny Bridges, at Coachella, CRSSD, in Australia, and abroad, but now they’re officially joining him on this Fantastic Voyage tour to help drive the live experimentation on select shows.
For a full run down on what to expect, hear what Justin Jay has to say about Fantastic Voyage below, and check out the full list of tour dates above.
“Over the past couple of months, I started throwing a bunch of house parties in LA. House parties are really special for DJ’s because we can play songs we normally never get to play: from the tracks that are too weird and quirky for the big clubs/festivals, to the songs that are too cheesy and feel good for the cool-kid warehouse shindigs.
I like pushing myself to play crazy forward thinking music, but by the end of the night, I also want everyone (including myself) smiling, laughing and having a good time. Sometimes the songs that make me smile the biggest are also cool in their own cheesy way.
‘Fantastic Voyage‘ is a song by the funk band, Lakeside and the name of my tour. Listen to it, and you’ll know what I’m talking about.”
One can’t really peruse music media without hearing the words “ship fam” nowadays. The Gary Richards brainchild sea voyage festival is now making it’s way to solid ground, stopping though Avalon Hollywood on it’s multinational tour. Ship2Ship features Destructo (Richards), Dirtybird’s Justin Martin, OWSLA/Mau5trap techno prodigy Rezz, and GDD’s own Bones. This promises to be an evening full of a wide array of house and techno, so you wont want to miss out.

On Saturday, January 30th, EDX will be making his way to Omnia San Diego for his first headline performance of the year in the coastal Southern California city. As a DJ/producer, EDX continues to impress with phenomenal sets, and hits that reach the masses, even after decades in the scene. Ever since his track, “Breathin‘,” took over airwaves a couple of summers ago, he’s been on a tear with his melodic deep house sound, and he’s still keeping it proper in the studio with new anthems like “Missing,” “Belong,” “Revered,” and more. It’s certainly no coincidence that he was the #1 top charting artist on Beatport in 2015, and he is sure to throw down at Omnia in the coming weeks. Buy tickets to the show here.
