Jaytech’s second full-length “Multiverse”, available August 13 on the renowned Anjunabeats imprint, is a lush journey through multiple styles of electronic music, progressive vibes mixed with classy, peak-time anthems. Following up on 2008’s classic “Everything Is OK” (“a crossover gem” according to DJ Mag), “Multiverse” takes his sound into the main room, while still retaining all the melodic flair and refined production that his prolific career has been built on.
Revered as the warm-up DJ of choice for stadium-fillers Above & Beyond, Jaytech has stealthily risen as a headline prospect in his own right in 2012. With tours of Japan, Australia, Europe and the USA already under his belt, and appearing at some of the world’s largest festivals including the iconic Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, Tomorrowland in Belgium and New York City’s Electric Zoo Festival – he’s truly made his mark on the EDM scene.
Both classy and club focused, “Multiverse” represented a natural juncture for Jaytech to elevate from Anjunadeep to the more main-room energies of Anjunabeats; a label responsible for hits like Above & Beyond’s Sun & Moon, Arty’s Around The World and Mat Zo’s Bipolar.
Introducing tracks like the bleepy groove bomb Epsilon and the big vocal anthem Stranger (featuring regular Dirty Vegas collaborator Steve Smith), “Multiverse” sees Jaytech explore higher tempos than ever before; never losing the attention to detail and musicality he is loved for. Moments like the sun-soaked opener Everglade and the dramatic, piano breakdown of the album’s title track “Multiverse” offer impeccable updates of Jaytech’s classic sound, while an updated rework of last year’s piano house anthem New Vibe brings a new groove to the tune. Rounding out the album are tracks like the light-and-dark musical breakbeat growler Blue Ocean and Vitalic-esque Diode, which offer a further journey into Jaytech’s own musical space.
As a producer, Jaytech’s pedigree has long been recognized. Producing from just 14 years old and releasing his debut track at 16, the Australian’s unique melodic blends have been supported by DJs like Sasha, Armin, Tiësto and, of course, Above & Beyond. As a DJ, he remains a respected selector of new sounds, with his Jaytech Music podcasts regularly showcasing the best in modern progressive and his mixes for the “Anjunadeep” compilation series hitting number one twice in the iTunes dance chart, both with his “Anjunadeep 02” compilation in 2010 and again in 2011 with “Anjunadeep 03”.
3 years in the making, inspired by countless international adventures, Jaytech’s “Multiverse” is an expansion of musical horizons, and you’re invited to join him for the trip.
