ONE TO WATCH – JAY L
Together is an understated slide of deep house music with very welcome shades of the likes of Andres, Seven Davis Jr, MCDE and Thatmanmonkz. The track builds with such ease and has an organic soul feel that would easily fit into any GS set.
More of this kinda think please Jay L.
If you are up to speed on Bristol runnings, you’ll recognise Jay L for his contributions to the city’s BRSTL label and his role in the Falling Up party with Idle Handler Andy Mac and Type Sun.
FallingUp comprises of Jay L, Andy Mac and Typesun
Jay L’s Wholemeal mix
The Wholemeal collective have been spreading their club love across South and East London with a series of infrequent events as far back as 2009, characterised by a guest policy that marks them out as music fans first and foremost. Whilst they have occasionally booked headline draws like Pev, Blawan, and Sigha, Wholemeal are quite happy to base a night around the lesser celebrated selectors such as October, Simbad, Leif, Elgato or Alexander Nut. With whispers of expansion into a record label out there if you know where to look, this Wholemeal takeover of Peckham’s Bussey Building is as good an example of their approach as you can find. Mojuba’s Sven Weissman tops the billing, and is ably assisted by Relative, Appointment and Livejam crew member John Swing, and Bristolian Jay L.
