Justin Jay just can’t stop releasing music, and his latest is a dancefloor-ready rework of Post Malone’s “Congratulations”.
Justin Jay has had an incredible year in 2017, and amazingly, he is still not quite finished. Just this year, he has released a brand new album that represents a completely new approach to his signature sound and toured around the country to support it with his rocking live band. Today marks the release of his remix of Post Malone’s “Congratulations“, first premiered during a b2b set with Justin Martin in Chicago.
Over the last several months, Justin Jay has been bringing the sounds of his newest album, Home, to a variety of venues across the United States. Intermingling new material with old and mixing the dynamic energy of a live band with the DJ skills that made him famous, he brought the house down and cemented his reputation as one of the scene’s most lively and exciting performers.
“Congratulations” has been a staple of Justin Jay’s sets on his Home tour. The track fits in perfectly with the energy and style of the original productions from his latest album, starting off with a catchy drum beat before adding in some resonant, slightly discordant synths that hearken back to his Dirtybird days. The effect is deceivingly simple – a lightened up, party-ready version of Post Malone’s original that works as well on its own as it does as part of a set.
