Argentinian Jay De Lys becomes the third artist to release on Jamie Jones’ newly-minted Paradise Music imprint, unveiling two new tracks across his new EP ‘Tired Of Loving’.
Based in the Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires, Jay De Lys is a name that has been appearing more frequently across the globe following a breakout series of releases on the likes of Nic Fanciulli’s Saved, Lee Foss’ Repopulate Mars, Stefano Noferini’s Deeperfect and Chus & Ceballos’ Stereo Productions. With heavy support from artists such as Marco Carola, Loco Dice and Joseph Capriati, alongside appearances across Europe, North America and beyond, early May sees De Lys turn in a landmark release within his young and promising career as he joins Jamie Jones’ newly-launched Paradise Music for the release of ‘Tired Of Loving’.
“I was in Barcelona for my European tour with just my headphones when I started working on this EP. I felt that the simplicity of my studio setup gave me another perspective and workflow, making me go for more raw and organic stuff combined with my usual Latin, percussion-focused style. I’m so happy with the result. For me, these ‘Tired of Loving’ & ‘One Bad Bix’ tracks meant showcasing my disco/housey influences with a modern touch.” – Jay De Lys.
Opening the EP, title cut ‘Tired Of Loving’ is a rolling and vibrant production merging crisp rolling drums with a funky core bassline and soulful vocals to showcase a track built for the Paradise terrace. On the flip, ‘One Bad Bix’ again dives into a carefully woven web of intricate percussion grooves, before the silky smooth melodies emerge from deep within the mix alongside more hooky vocal samples to shape things up nicely.
