Justin Jay taps into his darker side on his remix of Disciples’ “They Don’t Know,” due out on Sunday, February 22nd via Pete Tong’s FFRR Records. As he finishes his last semester at the University of Southern California, this 22-year-old dirtybird protégé is on the cusp of the breakthrough that his fans and peers have been waiting for. With this release, a forthcoming EP on Catz ‘n Dogz’s Pets Recordings, major upcoming gigs like Holy Ship!, and most importantly, an open schedule for studio time and touring, Justin Jay is expected to have his best year yet.

Although genres are becoming obsolete with producers developing new sounds every day, it is rare that a song leaves listeners speechless in pinpointing a category to fall under. Atlanta duo, Halogen, along with comrades Chris & Janzen managed to complete this anomaly of escaping genres with their remix of Borgeous & Shaun Frank’s “This Could Be Love.” It’s not surprising that this remix is an absolute feel-good jam with the talents of six artists putting their touch on it. Halogen and Chirs & Jansen allow the original’s vocals to soar as they layer a deep house bassline, indie progressive piano chords, and excellent synth accents to make a smile surface on your face. Give them the heart on Hypem to make sure they hit the top.
Bro Bible’s resident DJ, Tim Gunter, has become a curator of new talent on his home site for some of electronic music’s most promising future stars.

A man of many talents, Tim Gunter continues to be involved in the scene of rising producers including himself.
