Continuing my trend of being late on reviews, please let me introduce you to Moombahton’s newest and youngest Don Jay Fay.
Jay has released a stunning EP called $$OOPS$$ and the title track has been in my “record box” folder for a couple of weeks now, straight up old-school rave piano with a classic dubstep bass-line sits sexily over the dembow beat.
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 proving himself as a producer to watch in dance music cirlces.
Jay continues to impress me with a mature production sound that has moved dancefloors for me over the last couple of weeks.

I am a huge geek (as my previous posts evidence). So I read websites like Lifehacker on a daily basis. They are really interesting to me and I have borrowed many ideas from there to help with my music (where would we be without Dropbox?).
Neembuu looks like it will be something many of us producers will use. Many of us get frustrated with download/upload limits with free file hosts, but who has the time to upload to many 1 by 1. Neembuu does all the hard work for you. Lifehacker says this: Read the rest of this entry »
