2020 has been a career defining year for Jay, showcasing his diverse soundscape and proving why he continues to be a key player in the electronic music industry. Following his 2016 hit ‘Spotless’ with label head Martin Garrix on STMPD, this new offering marks his second release on the revered imprint. In a recent heartfelt Instagram post, Jay describes his change in mindset surrounding being a DJ. “I’ve come to realise what really is important in life and that the way I was doing things and especially WHY I was doing things wasn’t always a good thing, I was focused too much on likes, streams, follower count, subscribers etc.’ With time to reflect Jay has a new outlook; “My main focus right now is MUSIC. I love music. I’ve always loved music. I’ve always loved making music. That’s what Jay Hardway is about, that’s what I’m about.” With his passion for music reignited, we can look forward to plenty of new enthralling material from Jay Hardway.
