Jay Daniel's Debut on Wild Oats is Further Proof That Detroit Is Cooler Than Ever
Have you decided to move to Detroit yet?
Jay Daniel, the precocious Detroit DJ who made his debut as a producer last fall on Theo Parrish's Sound Signature label, is gearing up to unleash his sophomore effort on another lauded Motor City outpost. The record, a five-track EP titled Karmatic Equations, will arrive in a few weeks via Wild Oats, the imprint run by fellow Detroit-bred wunderkind Kyle Hall. A few weeks ago, Daniel posted clips of each track from the double-vinyl release, and we were so enamored with the rigid, purposeful stomp on "Change 4 Me" that we requested the honor of debuting the track in full. The tune, which you can stream below, goes through some transformations itself: blobs of acid synths form a simple melody around a straightforward kick, and eventually he fills out the track with buzzing pads.
