  • #PassYourJAYS - Brisa Roché

    2016-06-09

    Brisa Roche

    Brisa Roché was born in Arcata, California. Having a rural and somewhat secluded childhood she developed an assertive and unique personality. Her music career started as she moved to Paris and frequented the bars to play jazz piano. In 2005, signed to Blue Note, she released her debut album “The Chase” earning her a hasty comparison to Björk.

    Dissatisfied with her debut, Brisa decided not only to leave her previous label but also to shift from jazz to the folk rock genre – almost like something out of San Fransisco in ’67. To celebrate her latest release “Invisible 1”, made between California and Paris, we are happy to include Brisa in #PassYourJAYS.

    When we met her at Les Femmes s’en Mêlent music festival earlier this year and asked who she wanted to pass on a pair of u-JAYS to, this was her response:

    “To my manager! He is always there for me and he has given me headphones before. Also, I know that he doesn’t have any at the moment and that he loves the brand JAYS.”

    Check out the new album here.

    Technology Pep u-JAYS On-ear headphones

    "u-JAYS excel in keeping the discipline wherein many other streetwear headphones fail to do and that is to have a taut bass. It has the punch. It has the power. However, these don't overpower the other areas of the sound spectrum. Therefore, ti doesn't infect higher frequencies which would otherwise make the overall sound to be cluttered"

    Thanks Technology Pep for reviewing the u-JAYS!

  • #PassYourJAYS - Helluvah

    2016-05-19

    Helluvah

    Born in 1982 in Paris, Camille Warmé goes on the adventure Helluvah via a demo of 5 songs recorded at the end of 2005. After two albums well received and one EP noticed, Helluvah is back in March 2015 with her new album Long Distance Runners, released at Dead Bees Records. Passed by folk accents then by a second album more rock, Helluvah took a turn more electro-pop, without sacrificing the raw and nerve guitars.

    "Helluvah expands her universe by creating post industrial atmospheres that her singular voice manages to make mysterious and bewitching." - Télérama

    "Catchy, heady, warm or even hot" - Tsugi

    "Camille Warmé directly ran through the third gear without to clutch, and however she controls a hypnotic and dancing vehicle out of control." - Indiemusic

    Camille is more than welcome to our #PassYourJAYS concept, passing on a pair of u-JAYS On-ear headphones to her friend since 17 years, Magali, who ”courageously accompanied me on stage for the first time today, especially for Record Store Day!"

    Check out the video from their performance at our Paris Office for Record Store Day, and follow #PassYourJAYS in social media for more tributes and love of music.

  • u-Jays Review: An exercise in minimalism

    2016-05-16

    u-JAYS On-ear headphones

    "Tuned for laid-back listening sessions - Sonically, the u-Jays are clean and present crisp sound ideally tuned for longer listening sessions. If we had to force an analogy for better understanding, the u-Jays’ sound signature can be compared to the taste of a slow-cooked smoked piece of meat; you need a fair bit of patience to appreciate its quality. In a nutshell, the apparent lack of attack on the first few listens is soon taken over by the comfort of the u-Jays’ laid-back sound."

    Thank you Gear by MySmartprice for reviewing the u-JAYS On-ear headphones.

  • #PassYourJAYS - Vitaphone

    2016-05-04

    Vitaphone

    From psychedelic lullaby to hysterical guitar chords, Vitaphone plays free and creative rock’n’roll. Every track questions the identity of this multi-faceted band, causing disco balls to fall off the ceiling and melt into boiling broth. A supernatural voice and flexible sonic material draw halos of green light around Vitaphone.

    After performning at JAYS Paris office for Record Store Day 2016 we just had to include them in #PassYourJAYS. On the question who Vincent of Vitaphone wanted to pass his u-JAYS On-ear headphones to - he responded:

    Vincent (Vitaphone) : "Hey Alice...are you happy with your headphone?"
    Alice (his partner) : "Well...not really!"
    Vincent : "So to Alice ! Why? Because we play in the band together! Because we play music together! And it's important that she listens music with professional headphone."

    JAYS in Monocle Magazine, issue 93

    "Quiet design - Stockholm

    Earphones and headphones are such small pieces of kit that you'd be forgiven for missing something as rarefied as Swedish design pedigree. Of course, the point of good design is not noticing it's there - and that's where JAYS, founded in Stockholm in 2006, comes in. New to the stable are the q-JAYS earphones and u-JAYS headphones that positively love anything you throw at them, as well as giving you a fresh skinny on your old favourites. Detail, depth and precision added to beautiful engineering mean a handsome new benchmark for your lugholes."

  • #PassYourJAYS - Ji Nilsson

    2016-04-29

    Swedish producer, songwriter and singer Ji Nilsson has collaborated with a range of artists during the last couple of years including Marlene, Up To No Good, Hjältar Mot Sin Vilja and Min Stora Sorg. Her first EP “Blue is the saddest color” came out in November and we’re proud to include her in our #PassYourJAYS initiative.

    “I would like to give my u-JAYS to music video makers Karolina Bengtsson and Joanna Nordahl aka BoomBossGäris whom I have had the honor to work with the last two years. Sound is a very important part of their job so it feels great to be able to give a good pair of headphones to them!”
