Justin Jay’s Fantastic Voyage Announces Three-Disc ‘Fantastic Voyage: 5 Year Compilation’
For the last five years, Justin Jay’s Fantastic Voyage has fostered a platform where artistry can flourish, boundaries can be broken, and musical communities bridged. Defined by feeling not genre, the label’s first half a decade around the sun has been marked by cosmic odysseys, technicolor sunsets, and friendships between a wide reaching cast of musical characters. In commemoration of this milestone, the imprint offers ‘Fantastic Voyage: 5 Year Compilation’, an eclectic and diverse three disc, 100 track journey into sonics bound together by a yearning for creative freedom at all costs – led by Disc 1, which drops in full today.
‘Fantastic Voyage: 5 Year Compilation’ Disc 1 represents the singer-songwriter capabilities of the outfit, seamlessly fusing rap, punk, R&B, indie and singer-songwriter stylings. This first taste of the compilation features label-mainstay Henry Was, lo-fi duo PVLMS, new-age R&B upstart Boylife and Lord Pusswhip. The project was led by the symbolic single, “Colors,” which features pop/R&B vocalist Oli-J. The track highlights the anniversary’s core theme of “showing your true colors,” while touching on gay pride and self doubt. The single challenges the label’s peak creativity, combing through its eclectic style to create a sound greater than the sum of its parts.
Launching his music career from his freshman dorm room, the Los Angeles-based Producer/DJ, Justin Jay, has already seen success that extends well beyond his years. As one of the youngest early members of the Dirtybird family, Justin has seen support by the likes of Claude VonStroke, Jamie Jones, Disclosure, and George Fitzgerald, while also being recognized as a “Future Star” by trusted tastemakers such as Pete Tong. Evolving from the house world that helped kick start his career, Justin Jay has gone on to release with Patrick Topping’s Trick label and Nicole Moudaber’s techno-savvy Mood Records, while finding a place with more avant-garde purveyors of rave revival sonics like Shall Not Fade and Childsplay.
Fantastic Voyage’s 5 year anniversary has a simple mission – get out of the artists’ way and let them create what feels most authentic to them. The result is something that feels fun yet progressive, forward-thinking yet inclusive. It’s a something for everyone journey into the heart and mind of Justin and his constantly expanding and perpetually evolving platform for creative freedom. Come and get it.
