Detroit’s Jay Daniel is yet another brilliant young talent to rise from the Motor City, a place of such musical innovation and currency, against a backdrop of stark economic plight, whose creative supply seems yet to know no bounds. As well as his generous Detroit heritage Jay has music in his blood courtesy of his singer-songwriter mother who the older amongst us may know as the voice behind classic Planet E cuts ‘Stars’ and ‘Feel the Fire’.

Now following on from his impressive debut for Theo Parrish’s Sound Signature imprint last year Jay Daniels sophomore effort sees the light of day via the Wild oats imprint, a label headed up by his friend and collaborator, the equally precocious Kyle Hall.
Karmatic Equations features five tracks of mesmerisingly beautiful deep Detroit-esque house music, juggling hometown influences such as Metroplex era Anthony “Shake” Shakir and UR’s “Mad” Mike Banks and more latterly kindred spirits Omar S and the aforementioned Kyle Hall with his own intuitive sense of rhythm, sound, space and depth.
