Jay West

Blame the music

Jay West has had quite the successful career in the past decade in electronic music. Known for his deeper style of house music, his tracks always include a bit of new and old influences that create tasteful tunes, never failing to move and inspire. This time Jay teams up with Moodmusic, an imprint that is no stranger to underground superstars with top releases from the likes of Martin Dawson, Jay Shepheard, and Kruse & Nurenburg. Jay’s four track EP, Blame The Music, is a stunning selection of deep, raw, and swinging original work that deep house heads can really sink their teeth into.

The title track, Blame The Music, begins our journey into Jay’s masterpiece, filled with feel-good vibes, disco bass, and a little taste of the 90’s New York sound. Down continues the feel good vibe of the release with more summer inspired synths and keys sprinkled on top of a bouncy bass line. The next track, In & Out, packs a hypnotic punch only one can describe as inspired by the west coast mushroom sound. Finishing up the EP, Mean Machine is a swinging bit of fun deep house with a dash of disco guitar plucks and an old school vocal sample loop that perfectly raises the energy to drops of utter deep bliss.
