The Vault is a place for people to showcase their favourite tracks found on YouTube.
In tandem with the review of the album Jaydes, Patrice Knap serves up a vault with DJ/Producers carrying Jay in their name:
Jay Haze – Soul in a Bottle
Label owner, producer/dj Jay Haze is difficult to pigeonhole. After helming successful imprints such as Tnuing Spork and Contexterrior and one of the first netlabels (Textone) he stepped out of the lime light to do charity work. Instigator of the DRC project (to help victims of war in Congo) and the 2004 “Tsunami Relief), Jay currently resides in Lima, Peru where he teaches electronic music production to impoverished kids under the moniker “Creative Beats”. Soul in a Bottle fuses tantalizing, clicking beats with evocative, old school house chords and a reflective male vocal by his friend, Big Bully. The end result is refreshingly old school and hypnotic, but at the same time an ultra-modern house track. The clip has some poignant images from Peru.
