GENERATION BASS SIGNEE JAY FAY HITS NO.3 IN THE UK CHART : DIBBY DIBBY SOUND

fresh-jay-fay-dibby-dibby-sound

Really great to see one time Generation Bass signee Jay Fay hitting the Top 10 charts in my home country, the UK!!!

“Dibby Dibby Sound” originally released on the T&A compilation “Moombahton Forever” was given a lil’ make-over by DJ Fresh who recruited Miss Dynamite to drop some vox on the track and he gave it a Carnivalesque vibe too. It reached an all time high of No.3 in the last few weeks but has now dropped down to No.6.

We always knew this kid, Jay Fay was going to be a star, we warned you all.

Here’s a reminder of his release on Generation Bass:

JAY FAY'S STAR IS RISING : DJ Fresh VS Jay Fay Feat. Ms Dynamite – "DIBBY DIBBY SOUND"

421142_552677651410243_540199878_n

So great to see Jay Fay really starting to make some serious inroads into the commercial and mainstream music world with his latest release/collaboration with DJ Fresh and Ms Dynamite. This is also great news for Moombahton and a much needed boost for the scene.

Of course I knew it’d come to this from the first time I heard one of his tunes back in early 2011.  I heard his “Sabroso” remix which just floored me and so I asked him for the track and also an EP release on our label.  We started bigging him up a few months later around that time on various posts and in forums, Bassfest, Sabroso and other posts.  He was a big follower of Generation Bass in those days and so was eager to release an EP for us.

He eventually had the EP ready 1 year later just as his star was beginning to rise.  It was delayed because he had 3 EP projects on the go at the time, one for  us, one for T&A and also one for Young Robots and he wasn’t sure in which order to release them.   However, he kept to his promise and gave us the “Mashitup” EP in 2012, in spite of having various and much bigger and better offers on the table at that time.

A man of his word and that is what makes up Jay Fay, a truly genuine and honest guy.  We hope his star continues to rise, we are quite sure it will.

This new collab is massive though and is likely to go Top 40 in the UK.  However, it’s not new, an earlier version having previously been released earlier this year on the T&A “Moombahton Forever” compilation.

Here’s the original:

Here’s the new version:

Premiered by Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 on 29th October 2013, who made it his Hottest Record in the World, ‘Dibby Dibby Sound’ is the second single to be taken from DJ Fresh’s new album – due for release next year.

‘Dibby Dibby Sound’ is coming soon on Ministry of Sound Recordings and Columbia Records USA.

Moombahton Forever Compilation

artworks-000037499224-4b2b3a-crop

Sterling compilation from the label that gave birth to Moombahton, T&A!

Heavyweight names on this, creators, innovators and those who helped to push the scene forward.

Generation Bass favourites Munchi, Heartbreak and Jay Fay are all represented and so that makes it pretty heavyweight in our eyes!

It’s free too and so really can’t get any better than that.

The only observation that I’d like to make is that a great opportunity was missed to maybe make this a Double release with the inclusion of “more” fresher names and sounds emanating from the New Wave also being showcased alongside the established ones.

Plus the PR says the compilation is a snapshot of Moombahton in 2013, well 2013 has just begun and so I wouldn’t agree it’s an accurate reflection of that but more so a snapshot of Moombahton between 2009 – 2012!

Then again, it’s up to T&A how they wish to represent progress of a genre that they gave birth to.

However, if you’re into Moombahton or a mere novice, you cant go wrong by grabbing this to bring you partially up to date with the scene and it’s evolution:

PR:

This compilation is a snapshot of Moombahton in 2013, nearly three years after Dave Nada slowed dutch house down to reggaeton tempo for a basement full of buckwild Latino kids in Baltimore. All the major players in the nascent genre come together with their A-game on Moombahton Forever, from originators Nadastrom, Sabo and Munchi to early adopters Heartbreak, Tittsworth, Ayres, Sazon Booya, Pickster and Melo to rave superstars Craze, GTA and Dillon Francis. All facets of the movement are represented: wild dutch synths (Deth, How Y’all Feel), huge buildups (Alerta, Dibby Dibby), reggaeton rhythms (Mami Whine It Up, La Brasilena), moombahcore (Gotta Know, Killa), deep vibes (Vibracion, Suenos), weird experimentalism (Savage Beauty, Club 219), and even a tempo tool from Moombahton to house (Eat It).

Velma Kelly (Jay Fay Remix) – LuvTrap!

As you all know I rarely post any trap, there’s not many producers who can convert me to like it enough to post about it but Jay Fay is one of them and this is a great remix, kinda like what I would call “LuvTrvP”

You might recall we released an EP by Jay Fay earlier this year and were instrumental in shining some big light on him and he’s yet another one of the young producers who started life with Generation Bass who has gone onto bigger things and also yet another nabbed by one of America’s leading labels, Diplo’s Mad Decent who have a habit of raiding some of our young stars and giving them greater exposure!

Damn shame we don’t get introduction fees from them..lol…!

JAY FAY REMIXES BURAKA SOM SISTEMA

Our boy Jay Fay whose EP dropped this week, see below, also gets on the remix duty for one of the biggest Transnational Bass names around, and one of our firm favourites, Buraka Som Sistema!!

Here’s his remix:

Here’s what SPIN says:

“Tira o Pé” is the third single to come off the band’s 2011 album, Komba (Enchufada), and as you can hear, it sounds unlike just about anything you’ve ever heard, even as it finds common cause with a global diaspora of rough-and-ready club music, from grime to tribal guarachero. (It also has the sickest breakdown in dance music right now.) The single features remixes from JWLS, Jay Fay and Roby Howler, along with instrumental and (bootlegger alert!) acapella versions; it’s out on Beatport now and hits other digital retailers May 21.

Here’s the vid:

In a scene that is bursting with potential, moombahton producer Jay Fay fits in just fine. On his new EP for Generation Bass, Mashitup, the young tropical bass wunderkind continues to impress the world with a progressive take on the genre’s bold new style. Rarely can someone who’s scarcely past the age of 18 say that they’ve spent half of their life in music, and even rarer than that, have shared stages with the superstar likes of Drake, Steve Aoki, Rusko, Mount Kimbie, Big K.R.I.T, Wale, and Big Sean.

A drummer since the age of nine, this producer and DJ started out as a mash-up wizard before his interest in bass-heavy underground styles of the moment, including indie hip-hop, dancehall and African kuduro made him a prime candidate for Moombahton stardom.

Generation Bass is proud to unleash a collection of tunes that give a taste of the St. Louis, Missouri native’s talents. The title track, Mashitup, sees him soldering tribal beats onto bashment-tinted electronica as his patented builds and drops lead you through peaks and valleys, while the party-starting jackhammer that is Killswitch, produced with Australian Moombahtonista J-Trick, seems to hint at a cinematic armageddon at 110bpm with its foreboding mix of Dutch house warning sirens and cavernous reverbed sweeps layered over intricate, impulsive beats.

Mashitup comes fast on that back of a string of successes for the young prodigy, having released two EPs already this year, Bonkers and $$ OOPS $$, which caught the ear of the likes of Skream, Toddla T and DJ Craze. His trademark hard-hitting jams like Sabro and Jungle, his contribution to the The Rise Of Moombahton compilation, are hi-tech omens – foreboding signs that something major is about to happen. Sturdy drums, low, stomach-rumbling snares, double-tempo percussion and feverish melody synth lines are aimed at your feet.

Jay Fay is the complete package, a producer who has superior production skills, knows no boundaries and has an imagination that leads him to untraveled pathways. The inventor of Moombahton, Dava Nada, has already thrown his weight behind this kid, now it’s time for you to pledge your allegiance to Jay Fay!

JAY FAY – $$OOPS$$ VIDEO

As we said just last week, the second of his mind-blowing Moombahton trilogy dropped last week.  The young dude we are calling the next major Global Bass Superstar!

You know the finale is coming out on Generation Bass on 4th May with his “Mashitup” EP.

But for now here’s his glorious offering on the label that gave birth to Mombahton, T&A including the superb video for the lead track $$oops$$:

‘The Sound Of Young America’ is a bold proclamation to make, after all, it was first laid down in emphatic fashion by Motown Records in the sixties – but now there’s a new kid who’s staking a claim for that lofty mantle, 18-year-old tropical bass prodigy Jay Fay.  

Having already stacked up a pile of heavyweight cosigns from EDM heavyweights such as Skream, Toddla T, Dave Nada, Dillon Francis and DJ Craze, the release of $$OOPS$$ on T&A Records sees the St. Louis, Missouri native and percussive wunderkind continuing to carve out his own distinctive sound – and rapidly provinghimself as a producer to watch in dance music cirlces.  

The title track, produced with Ra Cailum, embodies everything that has got moombahton fans tripping over themselves to fete him; jammed to the gills with magnetic dancefloor energy, $$OOPS$$ boasts calypso vibes tussling with tough bassline electro to create a peak-hour, body-bending groove. Things are only just getting started – Starlife featuring G-Eazy proves that rap blends well with moombahton’s mid-tempo style, while Bamboula, whether in its original interpretation or as remixed by rising bassbin rattlers J-Trick and Zombies For Money is a wild low-end excursion. 

Having already remixed moombahton heavy hitters like Jon Kwest and Bro Safari after the success of his debut Bonkers EP, Jay Fay’s second release only serves to cement his growing reputation.

$$OOPS$$ expands his sound into a now trademarked territory all his own.
