Mysterious French DJ and producer Shiba San’s deep connection with music, specifically hip hop, is well known. It forms his infectious, ghetto leaning deep house for labels like the influential San Fran label Dirtybird and Amine Edge & DANCE’s hotter than hot House outlet Cuff. Fusing classic analogue sounds with current technology, his rock-solid productions make for a truly personal sound. As a DJ, too, he brings supreme dexterity and a deep selection of sounds from every inch of the spectrum. Both Shiba San’s ‘Me & My Doggs’ EP on Sleazy G, and his remix of ‘Bad Boy’, hit the Top 10 on Beatport soon after release. The follow-up single ‘Okay’ on Claude von Stroke’s Dirtybird caused havoc on the dancefloors even before it was officially released, it went to #1 on Beatport and sent his bookings through the roof. As this stellar DJ’s bombastic beats, charismatic sounds and grooves continue to come in full flow, Shiba San’s rise throughout 2014 is set to continue at pace. Launching his music career from his freshman dorm room, the Los Angeles-based 22-year-old producer/DJ, Justin Jay, has already seen success that extends well beyond his years, but he is surely not resting on any laurels as he further refines his expertise as a true artist. As the youngest member of the dirtybird family, Justin has seen support by the likes of Claude VonStroke, Jamie Jones, Disclosure, Tiga, and George Fitzgerald, among many others, while also being recognized as a “Future Star” by trusted tastemakers, such as Pete Tong, and fans alike.
At the heart of his music, Justin Jay manifests his soul, funk, and jazz roots in a nostalgic, yet forward-thinking manner that yields his unmistakable brand of house music, which has won him releases on labels such as dirtybird, Culprit, Southern Fried Records, & Pets Recordings. His productions have also put him in the spotlight on club and festival stages across the globe, from LA’s HARD Summer to the dirtybird residency at Sankeys Ibiza, where he held crowds in his grasp, taking fans on a rollercoaster of energy and music ranging from deep house to breakbeat to techno. Justin Jay is set to continue building his career one step at a time, not taking any shortcuts and remaining humble, earning his place as a leader in dance music.
