There’s no denying that 2015 has been good to Justin Jay. In addition to receiving his diploma from USC, the LA native released his two-track Mom, I Graduated EP on dirtybird before embarking on his first headlining world tour by the same name. The underground wunderkind has spent the last few months of the year unveiling his most exciting new project yet, Justin Jay & Friends, with the release of “Karma” on Black Butter Records. Now, Justin Jay is ready to end his tremendous year on a high note with a banging edit of Barnt’s “Chappell,” and he’s recruited two of his friends, Benny Bridges and Henry Was, to help.
On the remix, Justin turns “Chappell” into something that the techno world has ever seen before. The live instrument-driven remix still captures the heady synth work of the original, but gives it a grittier edge with subtle percussion elements to give it an extra punch.

“With Benny Bridges on the 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
