Justin Jay & Friends — Can't Complain ft. Josh Taylor & Benny Bridges
Last August Justin Jay made his way through San Francisco for a show at one of our favorite venues Public Works. As a welcome surprise, he brought a couple of friends along with him, for the addition of live instrumentals and vocals to what was already a fantastic set. This was the first time we experienced the Justin Jay & Friends project in all of it's collaborative glory, and not only was it an absolute party, it was also some of the most inspired work we'd ever heard from the producer.
Fast forward to present day and Justin Jay is out with two of the tracks that graced our ears that monumental evening. After announcing Fantastic Voyage (The Album!) with it's first single Weatherman last week, we're now given the latest release Can't Complain. Similar to it's predecessor, Can't Complain puts the projects focus on exploration at the forefront, through an imaginative house–meets–rock approach. The track takes shape through grooving house lines and radical guitar riffs (courtesy of Benny Bridges), led by the distinctive vocals of Josh Taylor, all coming together for a wholly excellent package. In short, this one does not disappoint, and there will be more coming soon so keep your ears perked.
And another one. Don't miss the above mentioned initial single from the album, Weatherman, as well.
