Jay Karama's Exclusive Mix
 
Today we are excited to bring you a thumping Exclusive Mix from Jay Karama. The man behind big tracks “Keep Calm” and “Dimebag” shared some thoughts on his mix, the music inspiring him at the moment, and of course his new hit Afrojack collab “Diamonds.” Enjoy a look and listen inside the talented Australian’s productions and plans for 2017!
 
 
How did you approach your Exclusive Mix? How does it compare to your live sets?
I thought I would share all of the tracks that inspire me right now. My live sets are focused on edits and mashups (using the styles I love) to get the crowd vibing as much as possible.

Can you highlight three tracks or artists in your Exclusive Mix and why they stand out to you?
1. Crankdat – The kid has the best sound design going around.
 
2. Eptic – His style is so raw in his sound set, yet fills every gap that it needs to.
 
3. Ghastly – I love how he keeps the trap/bass fans happy at the 128 BPM mark.
 
Diamonds” has been blowing up! #1 on Beatport, picked up by huge channels like Trap Nation, massive artist support (Hardwell, DVLM, David Guetta, R3HAB, Bassjackers, etc.)  what has the reception of the track been like through your eyes?
It's been pretty amazing! The general feedback has been so positive and I hear it played at every club/live event I go to! Every day now I am a stoked young fella.

 
How did you and Afrojack come to work together?
Afrojack contacted me through Twitter and the rest is history!

Can you talk us through the production process for “Diamonds”? How did you take it from the first draft to the final product that we hear today?
Afrojack asked for some ideas to send across for a collab. I sent him most of the drop in “Diamonds” and literally the next week he flew my manager and I to his studio in Holland haha! We worked on it for two sessions and that was it. Killer experience!

What has it been like being on stage with Afrojack dropping “Diamonds” at these massive festivals? What’s been your favorite memory playing “Diamonds” out?
Surreal as surreal gets – I was so blown away. To be honest I didn't even know he was going to play it at the time. I was just happily kicking it back behind the stage with an esky [cooler] full of beer. When they said to come up, it was a total goosebumps experience.

 
What can you tell us about some of your upcoming music for this year? Can you share anything about the ID you dropped in your guest mix for Tigerlilly’s radio show [mix + tracklist]?
Oh you heard that? Dope! I just finished that at the time. It should be coming out soon. I love it. Music this year will be getting heavier and weirder, which I think will always be an indefinite endeavour.  

Any plans for this year that you can share with us?
For the most part I will touring all around Australia and Asia for the coming months. The aim is to definitely hit the US and Europe late this year – I would totally love that. Most importantly though, my ass will always be on the computer trying to make something hot with a beer in hand.
