Justin Jay – Live From Desert Hearts

Twenty-one-year-old producer, Justin Jay, is about to have a busy summer. Just weeks after making his Coachella debut at The Do Lab stage during weekend 1, the Dirtybird protege is set to hit another important milestone – college graduation. As a college senior, Justin Jay’s culminating year at the University of Southern California was uniquely his own – in addition to all of the responsibility of a typical student, Jay was tasked with playing shows as far as New York City, with the likes of Gorgon City and his fellow dirtybird members, Justin Martin, Kill Frenzy, Eats Everything and more. A week before his debut in Indio, the youngest dirtybird played a headlining slot at the rising Desert Hearts festival, in the Los Coyotes Indian Reservation, and lucky for us, he’s made his set available on SoundCloud.

Like his entire college experience, Justin Jay’s trip to Desert Hearts was atypical. Rather than making his way down to the festival on Friday, Justin Jay set off for Las Vegas on Friday at 6 AM, for his first, and last, college fraternity formal. After spending a night in Sin City facing his fears (in the New York New York roller coaster) and enjoying himself at Disclosure’s Wild Life show, Jay set off for Los Coyotes, making it to Desert Hearts just in time for his three hour set.

On his set, Jay showcases why he’s considered by many to be one of the underground dance scene’s brightest stars. The mix features Jay’s signature house style, as it highlights an eclectic array of jams prepped specifically for the festival, and newer/unreleased productions like “You Give Me Butterflies,” “Cheese,” and “Karma” with his college best friend and musical collaborator, Josh Taylor. Peep the Desert Hearts mix above and download it here (tracklist after the jump), ahead of his seven stop tour in Australia this summer!
