Best Producer St. Louis 2012 - Jay Fay
It is fairly mind-blowing that teenage electronic musician Jay Fay has the public support of international tastemaker Diplo, a topnotch management team and the same booking agent as DragonForce. But the fact that he is sickeningly young is far less important than his unique voice as a producer. With only a handful of EPs and one-off remixes to his name, Fay is making a name in the booming (figuratively and bass-ically) scene of moombahton, which is like dubstep for adults. He dabbles in exotic funk, his tracks have all the flow of a killer house mix, and above all else, his work is centered around an absolute devotion to the power of a great beat.
