Jay Maloy has been holding up the Pittsburgh underground Hip Hop scene for the past four years with his blinding tracks such as Brooke George which was released three years ago but is still one of the freshest contemporary mixes that you will hear this year. His lively reproach to sound creates an infectious anthemic aura around his Trap style beats. Jay Maloy’s mellow vocals make Brooke George an ambiently easy track to chill to. Finding a Rap artist whose beats aren’t half-cooked is like finding a needle in a haystack, so, I’m pretty stoked that I happened across Jay Maloy who has recently brought some fresh new tracks for his loyal US fanbase. His most recent release was ‘Instrumental’, which (you guessed it) it’s an instrumental track in which Jay Maloy paid tribute to the roots of Dancehall’s sound. It’s pure rhythmic ecstasy that you could quite happily get lost in. Even if the track did make me want to play Crash Bandicoot.
Check out Jay Maloy’s timeless track Brooke George along with his other array of urban mixes on SoundCloud.
