FACT mix 247 is from FACT Producers To Watch in 2011 featured Jay Weed.
Hailing from France, Jay Weed made his introduction to many last year with the excellent ‘Prism’ single on Oneman’s 502 label. A dark, Eastern stepper with cavernous atmospherics and the swampiest of sub-basslines, it fitted in perfectly with the late night, smoked-out aesthetic that 502 has quickly built for itself, while also sounding like little else out there.
What’s swiftly becoming evident about Jay Weed’s music is a studied love of the full-body experience of classic dubstep; it was present on ‘Prism’, his remix of Crystal Fighters, his recent single, ‘On the Nile’, and it’s definitely present on this mix. Jay’s music might be house tempo, but the sub and space comes from a much darker place.
FACT mix 247 might not be quite as dark as Monday’s Anstam mix, but it’s not far off. Overheated drum machines reverberating in the deepest corners of the catacombs – you can practically smell the limestone.
